Cherry Chicken

Hello!

I have to admit that I am always looking for a way to bring change to chicken.  I actually love chicken, but it can get monotonous. So, unique flavorings that work brings yummy to my tummy!  I grew up on peach chicken, so fruit and chicken is not a foreign feat for me. In fact,  I admit that I enjoy the fruity fusion of the two.   

Thus, the Cherry Chicken was created! Plus, it is super allergy friendly and I have a certain love of onions, so it’s a win all around for me!
