Grilled Chicken Tenders with Cherry Citrus Glaze

Change up that plain ol' chicken dinner with this sweet fruit glaze.  A little goes a long way so be sure not to drown your chicken.  This main dish is ready in less than 30 minutes so you can have your meal in no time!

1/4 cup cherry all fruit spread (I used Polaner)
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1-1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
2-3 teaspoons bourbon
olive oil
1 pound chicken tenders
salt and pepper (if desired)

In a small saucepan add both fruits, soy sauce, and 2 teaspoons bourbon.
Heat on low until begins to bubble.  Cook for 3-5 minutes or until slightly thickened.  If you wish for more bourbon flavor add the extra teaspoon after you have turned the heat off.
Put chicken in a small bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Grill until fully cooked.
Top chicken with cherry citrus glaze (you may need to re-warm a bit to loosen it up) and serve with your favorite side dish.  I chose my wild rice pilaf.
