Grilled Chicken With Cherries

"I got this off the DIY network website, and I'm storing it here so I can give it a try! I'm sure the cherry glaze would be equally good on baked chicken."

    I had a package of dried cherries someone gave me so I thought what the hey. When I first made the sauce I changed my mind and thought; never again. You add this sauce to the chicken and oh WOW is it fantastic!!!! Now, I am not one for using salt which I did not instead I used Emeril's Essence that I make by hand omitting half the salt when I do. I placed it on both sides of the chicken before grilling. I will absolutely make this again!

    Made for Zaartag. Good and different recipe. I didn't use the butter though, I never saw where I was supposed to use it in the directions. I thought it may go in the sauce, but I didn't use it since it wasn't listed. Quick, fast, and tasty! Thanks!


I'm a real estate agent in the lovely city of Rochester, New York. That's not what I expected to do with my life. I got my bachelor's in psychology, my masters in literacy education, and I taught high school special education for two years. Then I discovered that helping people find the homes of their dreams was my real passion. I've been doing it for over two years now and still absolutely love my career. Other than that, I have a very spoiled Border Collie mix named Bear that I adopted from a local shelter in spring '08. He's gorgeous and fun and brings me great joy. Now if only I could find a man like that... LOL!
