Chicken with Spicy Fruit Recipe

Chicken with Spicy Fruit Recipe

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."
