Cherry-Glazed Chicken

Another TERRIFIC chicken recipe from Rodale's "Terrific Chicken: 100 Great Meals in Minutes". I haven't tried this one yet but because it's different from the couple of Cherry-Glazed Chicken recipes already posted here, I've decided to share it before making it. It's on my to-be-made-soon list. In the notes included with the recipe, is a recommendation to buy tart or sour pie cherries in a can because regular cherries will be too sweet. An alternative suggestion is to use 2 cups of frozen, unsweetened pitted tart cherries and 1/2 a cup of cherry juice in place of the can of cherries.
