Cranberry Chicken

This dish is so sweet and delicious that you can eat it cold, straight from the fridge. I've even been known to sneak back into the kitchen to enjoy an extra helping as a sweet post-dessert bite. (Hey, I was pregnant, all right?)


  • Prep Time : 5 min min
  • Cook Time : 40 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min


4 - 6 servings


  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 boneless chicken breast cutlets, about 3 pounds


  1. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, blend orange juice with flour, adding flour slowly, whisking to keep smooth.
  2. Add cranberries, sugar, margarine, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. Stir to mix.
  3. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
  4. Cool cranberry mixture slightly.
  5. Rinse cutlets and pat dry. Place in a large, deep skillet.
  6. Pour cranberry mixture over chicken in skillet.
  7. Cover and simmer 40 minutes. Serve immediately.

  1. Can you bake this in the oven?

    • Yes sure – make sauce as instructed above pour over chicken cover and bake at 375 degrees F – start checking for doneness at around the 20 – 25 minute mark

  2. Why is sugar one of the ingredients? Why so much sugar? There is already sugar in the orange juice. I could not serve this to my family. I would leave out the sugar.

    • cause it’s a super sweet recipe – but if it’s your preference it’s not problem to just omit the sugar.
