Ever so often we go out to a local restaurant here in East York. I always order their Applejake Chicken. Tonight I thought I'd try to make my version of this wonderful flavored dish and it turned out really good. My sweetie and I had it with some steamed broccli and creamed corn. Wow! What a dinner. Will sure make this again and introduce it to my family.
