Chicken Sautéed with Apples

I'm a huge fan of apples. I eat at least one every single day. They are my favorite snack, lunch, or before bedtime treat. So, when I found this recipe for chicken sautéed in apples - I knew I had to try it!

It turns out that apples are good for more than just eating with peanut butter! They added great flavor to the chicken and was a good mixture with the onions.
