"I also used craisins with excellent results. Served mine with long grain and wild rice."

"very good! used cherry infused craisins instead of cherries (leftover from Christmas baking) and it was excellent."

"This was a good meal. Because I had apple juice left over from a juice box, I added the extra to the jasmine rice we prefer. The next time I prepare it I will try to end up with more sauce without sacrificing flavor."
