I made a lot of changes to this and the resulting recipe was really tasty. Firstly, I fried some onion in olive oil. When the onion was softened, I added 2 minced garlic cloves and cooked that for about a minute while stirring. Then I added the chicken seasoned with salt and pepper, cooked for 5 minutes, then flipped the chicken and added two thinly sliced apples, 1 tsp crushed dried rosemary, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, and some apple juice in which to braise the chicken. I covered this and let it simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. When it was finished, the apples and onion had softened together and I had a really nice thick sauce on top. This was great served over rice! With my modifications I'd give this recipe 5 stars, but I would find it too bland and dry without the onions and apple juice. Thanks for the great starter recipe!


Excellent taste - exactly what I was looking for. I did not have pumpkin pie spice, so I replaced with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.


This was a very good recipe however the spices were very overwhelming. I would cut back the pumpkin pie spice and tarragon by half, the pepper to 1/4 tsp, and the garlic salt to 1 tsp.
