Recipe by Oolala

My Aunt said her neighbor's son used to come off the school bus and see his mother and yell "Are we having cherry chicken tonight?" I think it's a kid pleaser! Time includes marinating.

Might be better titled Orange Chicken as the OJ overpowered the cherries. My husband liked it but I am not a fan of citrus. The sauce was watery..maybe add some cornstarch to thinken sauce next time?
