First impression: apples, yum
Verdict: easy and delicious!
I was instantly intrigued when I saw this recipe. I absolutely love apples and was looking for a way to spice up my stir-fry life. The only thing that worried me was the amount of onion in this recipe. I don't typically like onion but everything else sounded so good I decided to go for it!
So I quickly chopped up some leftover frozen chicken breast, whipped out my apple corer, and sliced an onion into decent sized chunks (I did not want another butternut squash fiasco, I was keeping things BIG)

So first of all, I was full before I could finish it, so I'd say it's more than two servings, maybe not quite three though. I dunno. But the apples were nice and soft and sweet while the onions added a nice crunch. The chicken had great flavor and it all just went together so nicely. Normally I like stir-fries over brown rice, but I wasn't even missing it when I dug in.
Overall, not the prettiest dish to serve but a GREAT recipe if you like things a little sweeter. Easy and fast for sure. If you have a bigger appetite I think it would be easily paired with brown rice or rice noodles or something. And I'm not afraid of onions anymore! Woohoo! Definitely a success!
