"I made this a while ago and my family loved it. My husband will request it from time to time. Sometimes it's hard to find cherry preserves. Very quick, easy and tasty."
"Sooooo easy and quick! This busy momma will definitely make this again!"
"The flavors are amazing. I even make it for company. It looks pretty and is so tasty! I will dredge the chicken in flour, salt, and pepper before I cook it. It adds a bit more to it."
"This was AWESOME!!! The only thing I did different from the recipe was mix the cherry preserves and allspice together a couple hours ahead of time to allow the flavors to blend together. This is my new favorite recipe! I can't wait to try the topping on pork tenderloin or pork chops!"
"yumm yumm yumm. I am a college student and was able to make this fast, easy, and cheaply!"
