I have been doing new recipes every day of the new year and so far this has been the best. I put it over some brown rice with green beans. Yummy!!!

Easy recipe to prepare. Instead of breast halves, we cut the chicken into bite size pieces. The flavor was *amazing*. Even the kids (11 & 14) said it needed to become a regular on the menu rotation! Excellent!!!

I made this but used fresh black cherries and it was simple to make and very tasty. The meal was well received by my family. I didn't have quite enough sweet and sour sauce so made up the difference with orange marmalade.
