"I made this for dinner tonight. Husband liked it very much. It is easy to prepare. I served this with a simple garden salad with a lime dressing and it was perfect for us. This is a keeper."

"I made this tonight and we all really enjoyed it, I used panko crumbs and served it over white rice. I did add a bit more marmalade to have more of a sauce with the rice."

"These are easy and sooo good. My husband and I finished them off in one meal. And if you've got some picky eaters, you can remove their chicken before adding the marmalade and cheese."
