    Do you have any suggestions of what to serve this with? Could I serve this with breaded chicken?

  2. great Q: you can actually serve it with just about anything – but my favorite would be chicken – grilled, roasted or breaded — all delish – or a white flaky fish like flounder, trout, snapper but salmon would also be a nice complement.

  3. I love chutney and I’m always looking for new recipes. This sounds like it would go well with cheese.
