All cranberry lovers, this recipe is for you! It's as good as I expected. This simple, yet delicious chicken recipe is going straight to my recipe box. Just a note, the cranberry sauce is equally delicious on pork. I tried it on a leftover boneless, pork chop - yum!

I'm delighted to find this recipe again! I first discovered it in a magazine back in the seventies and used to make it regularly. I wanted something a bit festive to serve friends at a pre Christmas lunch. I'm sure they'll love it. I once served it to someone who said he didn't like chicken, he said the 'duck' was delicious!!!

This is one of my automatic go-to recipes for impressing house guests - because it tastes SO WONDERFUL and is SO EASY to make! Try it, you won't be disappointed. I make a veggie for a side - like orange almond green beans, or oven-roasted asparagus.
