I also thought it wouldn't be enough liquid, so I added some water with the juice--then had to boil some off before adding the applesauce! Didn't have rice wine vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar, & didn't have time to chop the ginger root (it was late, & I was making a double recipe to have leftovers), so I just used a heaping teaspoonful of powdered ginger--it was delicious. Served it over plain couscous, with a side of green beans & a salad

4 Points Per Serving. I'm not sure that Alton Brown would call this “poached”, strictly speaking, since there really isn't enough apple juice to cook the chicken! I served this with Spiced Couscous, which called for apple cider, so I used it instead of the apple juice. It was delicious!
