Chicken With Cherries

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by The old scone burner

Years ago my father had an American penfriend who gave us this recipe. Both men are gone now but the recipe remains a favourite.

I absolutely could not imagine the taste of ketchup & cherries together, but my curiousity got the upper hand, & I just had to try the recipe! So glad I did, 'cause the recipe is so easy to prepare (I did use 4 large chicken breast halves) & the taste is very satisfying ~ Deinitely a keeper recipe here, & it nicely expands my variety of chicken recipes!
