Makes 6 servings
Ingredients: 10 oz (300 g) fresh cherries, pitted and halved, 1 cup (250 ml) unsalted canned tomatoes, crushed, 2 tablespoons (30 ml) reduced-sodium tomato paste, 1½ tablespoons (22 ml) molasses, 1½ tablespoons (22 ml) apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) smoked paprika, 1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) adobo sauce, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) dry mustard, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) ground cloves, 2 pounds (960 g) skinless and boneless chicken thighs
