    CFRP's Note:

    This is the perfect recipe to make for lunch or brunch. It is elegant enough to serve at a bridal luncheon of any kind but easy enough to throw together if you're just having some friends over. It also makes an easy weeknight dinner - especially in the summer when you don't feel like cooking. It can be made ahead (although don't add the green onions or tomatoes until just before serving or they might get a little soggy).

      This was absolutely scrumptious. I took it to a party and there wasn't much left (to my dismay). I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry, but I don't think it would make much difference. Lots of cutting, so give yourself time. You can also make the chicken and rice the day before. dancerjan
