Chicken with Cherries
It’s not a common combination, not like chicken and carrots or chicken and peas, but—in my humble opinion— the combination is just as delicious.
The flavor of cherries falls somewhere between earthy, bitter tartness and pleasant, fruity sweetness. Similar to pineapples, cherries taste great in savory dishes. However, where pineapple really highlights the sweetness of a dish, cherries add a subtle sweetness.
In this dish, the cherries are stewed in chili powder, cayenne pepper, and more—turning them into spicy sweet orbs of flavor.
Cherries, Tomatoes, and Onions – OH MY!
Roasting chicken with cherries, tomatoes, and onions sprinkled with cumin, chili powder, and a dash of cayenne pepper—and really letting it simmer and stew together—results in a delicious, spicy dish that tastes great served over rice. I recommend pairing this dish with a side salad and slice of french bread.
