Love this recipe! I substituted maple sugar to make it a more naturally sweetened. My husband is a very picky eater and he liked this! We have used it on pork as well.

Why couldn't you just use a can of whole berry cranberry sauce?

No review as I have not made it yet. However I do have a question for Kim Pettipas or the test kitchen. Can the sauce be frozen? There are only 2 of us and it would be convenient to make only 2 breasts but the whole sauce recipe to hold over. Thank you and it looks delish!

This was SO EASY and it was a great hit with my family! We all love the flavor of cranberry and I am always looking for new ways to use it. I was busy and I was delighted to realize how simple this was to make. I'll be making this again soon!

Perfect quick and easy meal for fall. Would be great with turkey cutlets too.

This recipe turned out great! I added some Mrs. Dash to the chicken as well as freshly groud pepper and it was delicious! The cranberry sauce had too much of a maple syrup flavor to it I thought. Other than that it was great.
