      This was awesome! <br/>I have to say that first...<br/>Initially, my wife said "no, we are not making that" when I told her the name of the recipe. I have to agree with my wife, this was an awesome recipe that is hidden under the description of 'cherry sauce'. <br/>We are not big fans of fruit in savory foods, but we are willing to try things out. Glad we were because this was the BEST sauce we have had in a long time. <br/><br/>It reduced nicely into a sauce that was very workable with the meat. The recipe called for chicken breasts, but we had chicken thighs on sale so I bought 3 boneless, skinless breasts and a handful of bone-in thighs. <br/><br/>We made the recipe as described, but added a bit here and there for the additional meat. My wife was raving on the sauce before we even had the chicken on the grill! <br/><br/>The pictures I'll post put the boneless/skinless breasts on top of the platter, but I am liking the thighs. Awesome dish that my wife wants me to make for her family in August when we vacation in August- high praise indeed! <br/><br/>The pictures will be added to the recipe shortly... Thanks for the great ideas.
