Let’s confess that you thought that I was planning to publish a sweet recipe with quince, didn’t you?

But, as some of you already know I like unexpected ones and less preferred paths 🙂 Thus I prefer a savory recipe with quince. You will never regret if you try this chicken recipe loaded with vitamins and flavor of quince.
