I'll admit that I took a few liberties with this recipe, but they were small ones! I made a double amount of the sauce, & I used a bit less of the cayenne pepper. The chicken breasts were large, & I cut them into thirds so there was more surface for the sauce to cover! Very, very nice main course, & we much enjoyed the fruity flavor combo! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars tag]

Well, we thought this was very tasty, and flavorful. I did omit the salt, and added a small dash of pepper though. Not too sweet, but just right. Served with white rice. Made for Zaar Stars.

We thought this was very tasty. The recipe worked well. I didn't have seedless raspberry preserves, so I pressed through a sieve. Reduced the amount of cayenne because kids were eating. This needed a garnish for presentation, perhaps orange slices and fresh parsley (if serving to company). It is not too sweet a dish, and went well with brown pecan rice. Thanks for the recipe!
