Bourbon adds bite to this holiday standby, packed in a small heavy-duty glass storage container with a tight-fitting lid. Wrap in a vintage tea towel or cloth napkin, cinch with ribbon and adorn with small ornaments. —Becky Jo Smith, Kettle Falls, Washington
Cranberries and a hint of maple syrup make a sweet sauce for these easy chicken breast halves. They’re a quick but lovely main course for weeknights and other occasions. –Kim Pettipas of Oromocto, New Brunswick
Friends who own a cranberry bog treated us to freshly harvested cranberries. They were so pretty and tasty that I was determined to use them for something besides plain cranberry relish. I started out with a basic cranberry/orange relish and worked with it until I came up with this recipe. I've found that even folks who don't particularly care for plain cranberries seem to "relish" this side dish.
Meet the Cook: My husband and I have a small bog. So I "experiment" with cranberry recipes every fall! I came across this one in a cookbook, then just changed around a few things to better suit our tastes.
Cranberry/Orange Chicken is a nice New England dinner our entire family (we have two teenagers) enjoys. Sometimes, I'll make cranberry sauce, too, to top off a dessert of gingerbread.
