I've been married for 42 years and have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. I love to collect cookbooks and try new recipes. This dish is delicious, easy and good when served with rice and a side vegetable.—Edith Holliday, Flushing, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 21, 2013

This can be prepared with a small turkey breast as well as chicken.We often don't cook a whole turkey for the holidays and this is great recipe to use instead.I also use leftover homemade cranberry sauce and instead of rice accompany it with holiday stuffing. I prepare extra stuffing and then freeze it for later to enjoy delicious dinnerslike this one.

Awesome, a hint of orange added is also good...you can use juice and/or grated peel.

MY REVIEW

I have used this recipe three times in the month or so since I "found" it online. I used a boneless pork roast each time, and used the jellied cranberry sauce. The only thing I did differently is to season, flour and brown the roast before adding the rest of the ingredients. This dish was fabulous! I made it for a family of 9 who were moving, and they loved it too! The roast was moist and the sauce is so good I could just eat it with a spoon - and I don't like cranberries!

Very good. I used leftover homemade whole cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving and a combination of Bull's Eye BBQ sauce and Sweet Baby Rays.
