    This was a great recipe. Super easy and full of flavors. I served with green beans and a baked potato. My in-laws loved it. I will try with pork chops and maybe add some sauerkraut with the apples!

    This is a wonderful recipe. I used bone-in thighs and browned them first because I like the flavor browning adds. With the bone-in I still roasted for 25 mins. I served with Cider and Bacon sauce from this recipe http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1011270&cookbook_id=4837733 I used the browning pan to make the sauce...everything is better with bacon. It added the final flavor touch. Next time I may add butternut squash or parnips to the roasting pan. I think they would add an interesting flavor kick. I also served with cider carrots. Everyone raved...it was a suprisingly elegant weekend night meal.

    This was absolutely delicious! I added some garlic salt and oregano to the chicken and it came out perfectly. The apples were fantastic! Definitely a make again-easy and delicious!

    Very good; however my apples were very dry and not too tasty. I might try a different kind next time that has more juice.

    I baked it a little longer then what the recipe called for. We like our chicken very well done.

    Boneless thighs make this a snap to serve and eat. I wouldn't try using white meat - it would almost surely dry out. Increased the baking time to 40-45 mins. Last time, I skipped the sage (dry is fine; fresh no different) and still tasted fantastic! Sometimes, I add a bit of sugar (less than a TB) to perk up the natural sweetness of the apples. I also recommend adding more cinnamon and garlic. And leave some of the skins on for extra fiber! But don't try all Granny Smith - too tart. Empire and Rome apples work as well as Braeburn. I typically serve with a roasted green vegetable and a salad (or mashed potatoes, for a treat). An excellent dinner my boyfriend would have me make him a couple times a week, if it were up to him. Be sure to make enough for lunch leftovers!

    When I read the spice combo, I was convinced the end result would be phenomenal or disgusting, nothing in between. (BTW, I love "playing" with herbs, spices, etc.) Definitely phenomenal! I'll prepare this dish again. Next time I'll cook the chicken longer. I used bone-in thighs because that's what I had on hand. I noticed that 25 minutes wasn't quite enough.

    This is a great fall recipe! It has it all--inexpensive, easy and delicious. I just used Granny Smith apples and got an outstanding result. Husband loves it, too. Definitely one to make again.

    My family and I love this recipe, it's a fall favorite of ours. If I can't find braeburns I use gala apples (organic). I use a chopper to finely chop the apples, leavings the skins on. I also use 5 large garlic cloves (or 8 smaller cloves) and boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cooking about 35 minutes. The combo of the garlic and apples is wonderful. I serve it with fresh green beans or sauteed spinach, makes for a beautiful presentation as well as a healthy meal!

    Everyone loved this one! My son said it tasted like Thanksgiving and my husband said we need to cook apples more often.

    Followed the recipe exactly, and I don't know how this got such great reviews... These apples were the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted... Like what I imagine week-old rotting garbage would taste like. Luckily the flavor didn't absorb into the chicken or it would have gone into the trash along with the apples. Would give it zero stars if it were possible. Don't waste your time... Or your apples!

    This was only fair. It certainly tasted fine but was not exciting enough to make again. My husband made it and he said it was easy to make.

    Very happy to find this recipe online- my cookbook is at my other home. We had discussed the fact that this recipe, chosen for health, is good enough for company, before ever seeing your rating system. The apples are wonderful with the chicken. Add a salad and a little bread, and you have a great dinner. (The reviewer who compared the apples to rotting garbage must have a very limited diet, or very interesting garbage!)

    Fat from thighs runs onto apples. Thighs take extra 10 minutes by themselves.

    Delicious. I would definitely serve this to guests. Adding to our regular rotation.

    Delicious and easy Sunday-night dinner. My 8 year-old loved it as well.
