Chicken Cherries Jubiliee Recipe

Or….What do you do with overcooked jam?!

 chicken cherries jubilee

I am so fortunate to have two very clever daughters-in-law. Those “boys” may have given me grey hair, but they sure did choose wonderful partners.

A couple of years ago I made several batches of cherry jam. Some of it was overcooked. Not to the point that it tasted burnt, but enough so that it was thick and impossible to spread on bread with peanut butter. One of the daughters turned two jars into this creative chicken dish. She cooks for 8 every night, so tasty and simple is always a bonus. And this recipe is a good way to turn something savory a little bit sweet.

As you can see in the photo, it was served over rice with green beans and baby carrots as sides.

This photo was taken with her phone, but she is also an amazing photographer. Check out her website, Sei Bella Photography.

If you have an excess of half-ripened slicing tomatoes, you may wonder what to do with them. They seldom ripen on the vine, and even if you bring them in to ripen on the windowsill, they lack sweet summer tomato taste.
