Q: How does an elephant get down from a cherry tree?
A: It doesn’t, it gets down from a duck.
Cherries, fontina and pecans sounded like such an intriguing combination to me that I knew I had to give the recipe a try.
Wow! Intriguing and absolutely delicious. Oh, and super easy, too. And only 5 ingredients.
Just cover chicken breasts with cherry preserves and some onion powder and the oven does the rest. I adored the way the fontina tasted combined with the cherry. So good. Buttered green beans made a simple side that goes well here.
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
3/4 cup cherry preserves
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 ounces fontina cheese, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Place chicken in an ungreased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Top with preserves; sprinkle with onion powder. Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
3. Top with cheese; bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with pecans.

Being a Vermonter, a song titled ‘New England Love’ would, of course, catch my eye. It also happens to have caught my ears.
“We fight with a whisper
As New England lingers
We fight with a whisper
And in this flood, we’ll find each other”
