Tart Cranberry Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
My husband loves chicken when it's nice and moist, like it is in this autumn recipe. I serve it over hot fluffy rice with a salad and warm rolls on the side. The ruby-red sauce has a tart cinnamony flavor.

I have been using this recipe for years (aquired from one of your magazines) but actually have never made it with chicken, I have always used pork chops, which are fantastic. My favorite "pork chop" recipe.
