Crispy baked chicken tenders with a zingy berry cherry BBQ sauce. The cherries and blueberries can either be fresh or frozen (no need to thaw first).

Very yummy! My family looked at me like I was crazy when I started dumping fruit into a saucepan and declared that I was making BBQ sauce. They changed their tune when they tasted it! The chicken was a cinch to put together and turned out nicely crisp and tender at the same time. I used Rice Chex instead of Rice Krispies simply because that's what I had on hand. I liked the chicken recipe so well that I used it again for Buffalo Chicken Tenders adding a hot sauce while baking. A great recipe that I will be using over and over again. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
