    Loved it. We used a little more chicken than it called for, so maybe the flavors were more diluted. But it turned out wonderfully. We served it on a bed of brown rice with the peach salsa on top.

    The flavors did not blend well together at all. I think there was too much nutmeg/cinnamon mix. The relish could have used fresh jalapeno or something. Will not be making again.

    I was excited to try this recipe after reading all the great reviews. I made it exactly as the recipe stated, and I didn't care for it at all. I don't think the flavors blended well. My husband said it tasted like a Christmas cookie. I will not be making this again.

    I used my homemade brandied peach conserve instead of the peach preserves. It has slivered almonds and raisons. I skipped the mint in the relish and it was still very good.

    This was so good, even broiled indoors. I tripled the glaze and could have halved the salsa (relish). Very fresh, very healthy!

    Nice blend of different flavors. Needs a little more of the glaze. Very good!

    Nice blend of different flavors. Needs a little more of the basting sauce.
