Tangy seasonal chicken dish

Loved the tartness the fresh cranberries brought. I agree with another critic: start sauteeing the onions about 1 minute before the apple. I used a sweeter apple (all I had on hand) and that helped offset some of the tartness of the berries.

Ingredients easily on hand

Great with dried cranberries

DO NOT use fresh cranberries!! I made this and it was great until I added fresh cranberries. Next time I will use dried as they have sweetness. This is a really good recipes though. Easy, fast and tasty!

Quick and Delicious!

This dish is absolutely delicious! I didn't have thyme, so I subbed oregano for it, and I had to add a little more flour to make the sauce thicken up. I used fresh cranberries instead of the frozen, which made the sauce extra tart, but we really liked it. Make sure you put the cover completely on if you use fresh cranberries - they pop when they heat up, and a few tried to jump out of the pan on me! I would also recommend cooking the onions for about a minute before adding the apples, as the apples get softer quicker. My sauce almost ended up as cranberry-onion-applesauce because of this, but it still tasted great! I served this with steamed brussels sprouts and french bread.

SUPER yummy!
