Chicken with Raspberry Sauce

 Chicken with Raspberry Sauce
This tender marinated chicken gets a hint of sweetness when drizzled with a fruity sauce. I strain the mashed raspberries since our kids don't like the seeds. It's always a hit with rice pilaf and a salad. —Amy Ammann of Long Valley, New Jersey
