This speedy stovetop entree is special enough to serve company, yet easy enough for everyday. The moist chicken gets wonderful flavor from a sweet sauce made with strawberry jam, dried cranberries and pineapple juice. I like to serve it with rice pilaf, peas, a garden salad and cloverleaf rolls. -Kathy Rairigh, Milford, Indiana

"I didn't think this was spicy at all and I couldn't really taste the strawberry flavor. I thought it was a little bland."
