Reviews for Cranberry Maple Chicken
"Perfect quick and easy meal for fall. Would be great with turkey cutlets too."
"This recipe turned out great! I added some Mrs. Dash to the chicken as well as freshly groud pepper and it was delicious! The cranberry sauce had too much of a maple syrup flavor to it I thought. Other than that it was great."
