Maple Cranberry Chicken Recipe

“With just four ingredients, these moist and flavorful chicken breasts are a cinch to prepare,” says Margaret Wilson of Hemet, California. “The tart cranberry sauce contrasts nicely with the sweet maple syrup.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce, divided
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine syrup and 3/4 cup cranberry sauce; set aside. Sprinkle chicken with salt.
