Cranberry Chicken Recipes

I love chicken cooked with fruit. This is a recipe I came up with years ago when I was craving a savory, tangy, pretty dish for dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts, skin removed
  • 3/4 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • sugar to taste*
  • salt and pepper to taste

*You need a little to cut the sharpness of the cranberries, but can make this less sweet than if you used cranberry sauce. I don't add much sugar. The orange juice adds a little sweetening. Add a little, then taste. If it needs more when it is done, you can add it then.

Directions:

Saute the onions and chicken in a little olive oil. When the chicken is nicely browned, add the remaining ingredients. Turn chicken so that it is breast side down. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a nice simmer and cover. Stir often. Cook until the chicken is done and the sauce thickened a little. This is very good served over rice.

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 35 - 45 Minutes
