      I only made the chicken. It was fantastic. So moist and delicious. I used frozen chicken tenderloins, a "staple" at my house. I also used a peach glaze out of a bottle for my sauce.

      This recipe was awesome! My husband made it for me for Valentine's Day and I must say-it was the best meal I have ever had! He is not the cook in the family (that's usually my job :) but he found the recipe very easy to follow and it was absolutely delicious!!!!!
