This makes a very attractive and tasty presentation. When I make this again, I would pobably use some type of sauce over the top, possibly something with a little bite to compliment the sweet. I would also watch the cook time as mine was just a little dry. I think it would depend on the thickness of the chicken. All in all a good thing!!
