"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."
