    This is a delicious recipe. The only thing is, I think the temperature of 450 is an error. The chicken so flavorful, but very dry and the sauce was pretty much non existant since it had dried up from the high heat. I had to add a little water to make the saucesomewhat reappear. I also forgot to add the apples at the end, but flavor wise, this dish is a keeper. I used kosher chicken sausage from the butcher, they did not have kosher apple-chicken sausage. Next time I make it I will lower the heat since it cooks for such a long time anyway and try to remember to put the apples in!
