Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, skin-side down, reduce heat to medium and cook, undisturbed, until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Remove all but 1 tablespoon fat from the pan.

  • Turn the chicken over and add cranberries, vinegar, honey and thyme to the pan. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then reduce heat to maintain a simmer. Partially cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part without touching bone reaches 165 degrees F, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Increase heat to high, add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook uncovered, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 1 minute. Serve the chicken with the sauce.

I made this for my husband because the ingredients in this meal are so healthy for you. My children are picky but all of them enjoyed it too. I loved it as well and it was easy to make. Score one for mom! Read More

I LOVED this! I had to substitute rehydrated cranberries because I did not have any other kind. Will definitely make this again! Read More
