Rated 5 out of 5 by from So I wasn't quite sure about italian dressing mixing with syrup. So I wasn't quite sure about italian dressing mixing with syrup. BUT let me tell you this dish was delishious! I cook for 2 so i just down the chicken, but kept the amount of apples and onions (i used purple onions) the same, for the sauce i used 1/3cup italian and 1/4cup maple syrup. My boyfriend who never goes up for seconds, went up for seconds and poured the syrup/dressing allover the rice and other veggies i cooked. Plus he ate fruit! Another rarity! I will definitely make this again! It's the perfect amount of tangy sweetness! I chose to use Fugi apples also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a very tasty comforting dish. This is a very tasty comforting dish. Since I always use large chicken breast halves for everything I just doubled the amounts of everything else and added 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1/4 cup of white wine. That way there was plenty of sauce to go on the mashed potatoes served with it. Also I diced and crisp fried 6 strips of bacon and added it to the apple onion mixture on top. Instead of cooking spray I used bacon drippings to brown the chicken. I make this 3 or 4 times a year and it's always a hit plus it makes the house smell so wonderful while cooking.

I made this recipe for my sister's BD dinner and it was so good that my sister got the recipe and made it days later and I made it a 2nd time. For the side dish, I made jasmine coconut rice (cooked in coconut milk) and we ended up putting the chicken over the rice. Make sure that you do not overcook the chicken, so it will be tender. I had a nice salad on the side with oranges, apples, sliced black olives, red onions, zesty itillian dressing and some blue cheese dressing. I left it in the fridge for an hour before serving it over romaine. Yummy dinner!

(now that says alot) I used fat free Zesty Italian and real maple syrup for the sauce. I also added a few extra onions. I made stuffing and carrots to go along with this dish and then spooned on the Italian/maple sauce mixture from the pan over them to "boost" their flavors. The only thing I will do differently next time is to make slits in the chicken to try to infuse it with a bit more flavor (not bland, but just didn't absorb a lot of flavor)....or just use a sauce/meat injector!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved this! I loved this!!!! My husband wasn't "thrilled" with it, but said he'd eat it again if I made it. I had my boss and his wife over when I attempted this and they both LOVED it. I had to email them the recipe. I did a little different though. I boil my chicken first (always) then I cooked the breasts in a skillet on the stove for a few minutes in some of the dressing and (real vermont maple syrup). Then I put the chiken in my cassarole dish, poured all the liquid on top and arranged the apples all over. The chicken had a GREAT flavor this way!

It was sweet, but not too sweet. I used a Grade A "very fancy" and light maple syrup (rather than the fake syrup or a Grade B bolder flavor syrup--my husband does not care for overly sweet dinners, so I used the mildest one I could find even though Grade Bs are recommended for cooking). I recommend that people give it a try because it tastes better than you might think.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light flavor, easy to put together. Very light flavor, easy to put together. I used Kraft Free Zesty Italian and sugar-free organic maple syrup. A shaker bottle for the maple syrup & dressing mix worked great for me - I could mix it up very well & then just pour it over everything. Note - I suggest maybe one large apple instead of two medium, there were a lot of apples here - tasty but made the cook time longer. Also a red onion enhances flavor best, I think. Yummy & very easy!

I was a little hesitant to make this recipe because of the syrup & italian dressing mix- it just seemed too strange to work, but the chicken tasted fabulous! I placed the ingredients in foil packets in my toaster oven, so I could make mine with onions and my husband's without. The funniest thing is, I'm not a big apple fan either- until now. I loved the warm apple slices as a side-dish. We'll be having this dish at least once a month.
