Chicken & Cherries ™

This is a great recipe for summer. I've used a grill pan, but this also works on an outdoor grill too.

1 lb boneless chicken breasts or thighs
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. salt, pepper
1 - 2 T canola oil
2/3 c pitted and halved cherries
1/2 c water
1 - 2 tsp. sugar (optional)

Heat grill pan over medium high heat, Lower heat to medium, add oil. Add chicken to grill and cook on one side for 6- 10 min. Turn chicken over and cook on other site for 6 - 10 min more or until done.  Remove chicken from grill and transfer to a serving plate. Let chicken rest for a few minutes.

Heat a  sauce pan over medium heat. Combine cherries, water and sugar to pan, lower heat to medium low and let it reduce for 6 - 10 min or until done.

To serve: spoon cherry sauce over chicken.

Serves 4.
