Cranberry Glazed Chicken

Dinner couldn't be any easier than
cranberry glazed chicken. 
Serve with white or wild rice and a green vegetable.
Saute the chopped onion in a little oil. 
Add the cranberry sauce, ketchup, mustard,
 and brown sugar. Heat, stirring until well combined
 and the cranberry sauce melts.
I always use the larger 14-oz can of whole berry sauce
and store the rest in a glass jar in the refrigerator. 
Use 3-4 boneless breasts, cut into serving size
 pieces if very large. 
Put into a sprayed shallow casserole.
 Salt and pepper the chicken and pour the sauce over.
Bake at 350 uncovered for 35-45 minutes until glazed.
You can also use cut-up chicken pieces. 
Bake those a little longer, 45-50 minutes.

In a small saucepan saute the onion in oil until tender.

green vegetable.


  1. Sounds delightful Rita. I guess I would have to use jelly type sauce and then my hubby would find it delcious and never know about the cranberries ;)

  2. A W E S O M E.... blog of recipes. I cannot wait to try so many of them. I just had surgery so I need to wait a bit but I am so excited to run across your blog. I am becoming a follower for sure. I laughed when I saw you stated you ate browies every day. I have some sort of chocolate almost every single date myself. (Where is your brownie recipe?).
