This Discover Cooking with California Olive Oil Recipe Contest submission comes from Michelle Mazzara. She describes her Grilled Chicken with Cherry & Onion Sauce recipe:
“The sauce is tangy and sweet at the same time. The chili sauce gives it a little kick. This is perfect dinner to have with a nice bottle of California wine. It is also the perfect dish to make in the summer when cherries are in full season.”
2 chicken breasts
2 tablespoons of sweet chili sauce
3 tablespoons of We Olive Olive Oil
1 Vidalia onion, chopped
1/2 cup of red cherries, remove pit
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
2 tablespoons of sherry
salt and pepper, to taste

2. In a medium size saucepan add olive oil, sherry, garlic paste, onion, cherries and sweet chili sauce. Cook over medium heat until cherries and onion are tender about 15 minutes. Add dash of salt and pepper.
