      This was very good and used stuff I stock in my pantry. A simple way to serve an elegant dish! I used some strawberry/banana orange juice since that's what I had on hand, but the tastes still matched well. This is one for my recipe box! :)

      Excellent recipe and very easy to make! My entire family enjoyed it. I have a very picky eater, and she wanted me to make it again the next day. My husband said it was restaurant quality. I did modify it a little. I had no OJ so I substituted the drained pear juice. I deglazed the frying pan with the sherry. I also used more cornstarch & water. I used about 2 Tbsp. cornstarch and 1/4 c water. This will definitely added to my monthly menu!
