    I was all set to make this dish. Until I read the ingredients. The fruit isn't fruit cocktail( peaches, pears, cherries and pineapples). It's tropical fruit( mango, papaya and pineapple). Not a fan of tropical fruit.??????????????????

    Very good recipe, easy and quick for week night meal. Hubby liked it and would want it again. Made exactly as indicated and would only want alittle more juice for sauce next time.
