Dinnertime! Main Dishes

Cherry BBQ Chicken

Sometimes dinner just feels like a task you have no interest in tackling.  But when you have easy recipes like this in your back pocket, it seems less like a task and more like a pleasure!   Cherry BBQ Chicken uses a BBQ you likely already have and pairs it with an excuse to go shopping for a high quality cherry jam.  I was lucky enough to be gifted with some and I immediately thought of this delectable combo for its first opening.

Hello lover.

This dish comes together in 20 minutes so it’s pretty hassle free with delectable results.  Sweet and tangy goodness is yours in a snap!   The video shows you how to bring it all together and what the recipe should look like in different stages.

    1. You can swap out all kinds of jellies and jams for this one but it’s nice to have an excuse to buy one you don’t normally keep on hand. 😉
