Gorgonzola & Orange Chicken Tenders

My mom likes to make this for family gatherings, and we all like to eat it. Marmalade and Gorgonzola might sound like an unusual combo, but they actually make a great pair. —Yvette Gorman, Denver, Pennsylvania

    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.
