This recipe was created for RSC #6. I've always adored chicken together with fruit and nuts.

This was a wonderful use of contest ingredients. DH & I both said WOW! I wasn’t expecting this much flavor from so few spices. I really don’t care much for cooked fruit, but this recipe is the exception to that statement. :-) I sprinkled my serving with a few red pepper flakes and spicy was even better. For lunch the next day, I served the small amount left on top of chow mein noodles. That was good also! I wish I could give this more stars. Great job chef and good luck in the contest!
