This recipe is fantastic---everyone loved it! Plus, it requires very little prep, which is nice, and has a wonderful amount of flavor for so little work. I used 4 large chicken breasts and the same proportion of sauce listed. I used bing cherry preserves. This was really easy and really tasty and I would definitely make it again. I served with Recipe #201010 as a side dish. Made for ZWT5. Thanks, Kim!
