Chicken with Dried Cherries and Sour Cream

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Top Review by Charlotte J

Excellent!! I sliced the onions as I wanted some texture (for lack of a better word) to the dish. Also used 5 breast halves. As Mardi says, it has a very rich taste to it. I loved the cherry and nut combination mixed with a bite of chicken. The kids did eat the chicken but not the onion/cherry sauce. This dish would work nicely for a dinner party.
