This a wonderful simple savory chicken dish to make. The cherry Wine sauce makes the chicken very delicious. I changed up a basic sauce recipe I had. I added herbs and wine to it. Then, I paired it with my own chicken recipe. They go very well together. My family and I were delighted with the flavors in this dish. I had 2 pieces and wanted to eat a 3rd. That's how yummy this dish is. I am adding this to my list of favorites. Enjoy!!!
