Reviews for Maple Cranberry Chicken
"Delicious and super easy. I am one of those people who grill outside year-round and this was great. I served the chicken with au gratin potatoes and green beans."
"Simple & delicious. I poured the glaze on top of the chicken & baked them in the oven, covered at 375."
"This is excellent and easy! I agree that you have to watch for burning under the broiler, so the second time I made it I decreased the time under the broiler and finished it in the oven. Beautiful presentation for my dinner party along with other TOH recipes."
