3 lb boneless chicken breasts
1 1/4 cups apple cider (divided)
1 16 oz pkg frozen cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 tsp garlic
2 Tbsp dried minced onion
to taste salt and pepper


In large frypan, heat 1/4 cup apple cider with garlic and minced onion. Saute chicken breasts.

Separately, heat cranberries, 1 cup apple cider, and sugar til boiling. When berries pop, set aside.

In large casserole dish, place chicken breasts and juice. Add cranberry sauce.

Bake at 350 °F for an hour.

This makes chicken with a juice, not a thickened sauce. To make a thicker sauce, remove about a cup of the juice, and stir in 1 Tbsp of cornstarch.


This tastes like a turkey and cranberry sauce sandwich, without the bread.
