Apple juice lends a subtle sweetness to chicken that's nicely coated with dill and tossed with carrots and celery in this pretty stir-fry. "I've served it on busy nights when time is short and at family buffets, too," says Helen Bekert of Sprakers, New York. "Everyone is sure I've spent hours in the kitchen."
