When cranberries are in season, I like to stock the freezer so I can serve this dish year-round. The sauce's tangy flavor complements the chicken very well.

"This is the only stove-top recipe I use for any chicken dish with cranberries! Serve over rice with a salad to make a quick complete meal. Delicious!"

"I made this recipe as written, using fresh cranberries, and my husband and I enjoyed it. For my preferences, I might use slightly less flour, butter, and brown sugar next. But, all in all, a tasty meal - great for a family dinner or a casual meal with friends."
