Hubby doesn't like chicken any way except fried or "Shake 'N Bake," or Sweet and Sour Chicken. Tried hundreds of other recipes without success.

Hubby RAVED, yes, RAVED about this recipe. I almost fell off my chair! I will be making this again and again. Thank you for helping me keep my sanity.

Sweet and spicy - great combination

Wonderful Break From The Norm

The chicken was delicious. I chose to use only half of the chipotle as recommended in other reviews. Doing this allowed my 6 year old to enjoy as well. Will definitely make this again.

Most of the ingredients you already have in your kitchen.

Sweet Heat!

I am a HUGE fan of 'sweet heat', and this sauce does not disappoint. The only thing I did differently was to reduce the amount of cherry preserves, b/c the ones I purchased seemed overly sweet. This is great on grilled chicken, but I also used it on a dish I created - Cornflake-Crusted Chicken Tenderloins on Sweet Potato Waffles. Really delicious!

Simple to prepare, excellent flavor

this sauce is fabulous! I have used it on chicken and pork and it is always a hit. My daughter doesn't like any spice/heat so I take some out and marinate her meat separately without the chipotle. Easy to make and if you are a cherry lover like me, it doesn't get much better.
