Grilled chicken combined with some fresh cherries

Prep: 15 mins
Marinate: 2 hrs
Cook: 17 mins
Total: 2 hrs 32 mins


  • 6 chicken breast , halves, about 2 lb; boneless and skinless
  • 17 oz dark sweet Bing cherries, drained
  • 12 oz black cherry soda
  • 3 tbsp Mrs. Dash Chicken Grilling Blend
  • 3 tbsp cherry preserves
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

  1. Pour ½ of the soda in a big zippered bag. Save the rest.
