    Surprise indeed! I have to say this looked plain weird in the pan before going into the oven. It came out luscious in both appearance and flavor. We trust BK to give us something we like and BK comes through again. We followed the recipe exactly (except part of our jam was plum), and no regrets. Very easy if slightly messy: DH made it and LL declared it TDF. Made for OZ/NZ Swap March 2008.

    This is so good!!! Used marmalade and a bit more mushrooms (and I would add even more next time!). Didn't have any white wine - so used red. The chicken was moist and so tasty - WE LOVED IT!! Thanks BK! :)

    Just great! My DH said he would love to have it again...soon. My DS said he could eat it every night and asked if we could give it a bazillion stars. He's a 13 yo picky eater, so THAT is a great review. For my part, I loved the flavor and the ease. I like things that I can let sit overnight and then throw in the oven when I get home. I used apricot preserves (sugar free), lowfat cream of chicken and white wine. I've added this to my "more than 10" cookbook, thank you for a great new recipe!

    That was flat out *GOOD*! I followed your recipe to a T, using the marmalade option and loved the results! I beat up on the chicken a little to get it flat enough to be smeared and that worked great. I'll make this dish often. Thanks for sharing!

    This was a nice change from just italian dressing chicken. We used peach jelly and used merlot instead of sherry wine.
