Chicken with Cranberries Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Dash ground nutmeg


  • 1. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper; dredge the chicken. In a large skillet, cook chicken in butter until browned on both sides. Remove chicken and set aside.
  • 2. In the same skillet, combine the cranberries, water, brown sugar, vinegar and nutmeg; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Place chicken on top; cover and simmer for 30 minutes. To serve, spoon cranberry mixture over chicken. Yield: 6 servings.

"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."
