      I used a pound of chicken tenderloins and it was perfect for this dish. My sister and I agree that we really enjoyed the combination of fruit. I would definitely make this again. It is easy and delicious. Made for ZWT 4.

      Well...this one didn't quite do it for us. The instructions say to use enough water to cover, but I think that is too much. Even after taking the lid off and trying to reduce the liquid, the sauce was very thing. After trying to reduce it for about 20 minutes, BF was starving and could wait no longer. I mixed a little cornstarch and water and added it to the pan to thicken the sauce. I would recommend just using about 1 cup of water. The chicken was very moist and tender, but the overall flavor was a bit bland. I think adding come cinnamon would work well, especially with the fruits. Thanks for posting this for the Tour, though!
