Bing Cherry Chicken Marinade

This is the first of three recipes utilizing the year’s bounty of cherry goodness.

The spring came early, spared us frosts that devastated last year’s harvest, and blessed us with abundance.  Now is the time to preserve, bake and cook up the cherries.

This recipe recommends itself as simple and flavorful, using a substantial ammount of cherries.  The method written is for a slow cooker, however, it would work just as well to marinade the chicken chilled for 2 plus hours and then grill.
