      Wonderful simple dinner. Used marsala wine instead of sherry. Served with rice pilaf and beets. Thanks Geema!

      I really enjoyed this. It had a little bit of an asian flavor, maybe from the sesame oil. I did not have Sherry so I used white wine. Next time I make this I will increase the marinade so that I can have a little left over "juice" to spoon over my rice.OOps... I spooned the cranberries over the top and I think I was supposed to serve them on the side. Oh well... it still was delicious!
