Author Notes: I created this dish because I love to feed my daughter healthy and creative foods. She loves cherries, chicken, brocolli and pasta, so I made one our of favorite recipes using cherries. It was awesome! She's four years old by the way :) Tough to get children to eat nutritious foods, but not in this house (we cook together). —Jenna Therese
