Black cherry soda and Bing cherries make this a sweet chicken dish.
How To Make Chicken and Cherries
Grilled chicken combined with some fresh cherries
Pour ½ of the soda in a big zippered bag. Save the rest.
Mix in 2 tablespoons of the Mrs. Dash Chicken Grilling Blend, cherry preserves, lemon juice and olive oil.
Set aside ¼ cup of the marinade to use as a baste.
- Add the chicken to the bag, seal it, and refrigerate a few hours (or overnight for more flavor).
Remove chicken from bag and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoons Mrs. Dash Chicken Grilling Blend.
Grill the chicken, turning and basting with reserved marinade a few times, until no longer pink in center and juices run clear (about 160 degrees on an instant read thermometer), for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Pour all remaining marinade, the reserved soda, and the canned cherries into a saucepan.
- Bring to a boil over high heat. In a cup, dissolve cornstarch in a little water.
Stir into sauce and cook for 2 minutes.
- Pour sauce over chicken.
