Mom’s Savory Cranberry Chicken

Mom’s Savory Cranberry Chicken

Course: Main Courses – Poultry


  • 1 14-Ounce Can Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Dried Minced Onions
  • 1/4 Cup Apricot Preserves
  • 1/2 Cup Orange Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 4 Frozen Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts


  • Place all ingredients except chicken in sauce pan. Combine & place over medium to medium high heat. Warm, but do not boil.
  • Place chicken in baking dish and pour sauce over chicken. Cover and cook for 45 minutes. Uncover and baste, allowing some solids to remain on top of each chicken piece. Continue to cook until done, approximately another 45 to 55 minutes. Time depends on size and thickness of chicken pieces. Less time needed of course if chicken is not frozen; however, the dish comes out better if you start with frozen chicken breasts.
  • Serve with rice. Sauce goes wonderful over the rice.
