Cranberry Chicken Recipe

Chicken breast recipe with a tangy cranberry sauce you will love.

We eat a lot of chicken and try to come up with different ways of cooking it all the time. Nick made this new Cranberry Chicken Recipe the other night and we absolutely loved it. The chicken turned out juicy and burst with flavors, while the sauce is sweet and tangy all at the same time.

We served our healthy Cranberry and Catalina Chicken with creamy white rice. Plain white sticky rice, Jasmine rice or even garlic mashed potatoes would have been just as good. We had plenty of cranberry sauce to pour over the chicken and rice.

Cranberry Chicken Recipe

Ingredients You Need:

  • 14 oz can of Cranberry Sauce
  • 8 oz Catalina Dressing
  • 4 Chicken Breasts

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Pour the first two ingredients in a greased baking dish and stir them up.

Place the chicken breasts on top of the sauce and flip them over a couple of times to coat both sides.

Bake for about 50 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.

Cranberry Chicken is a healthy dinner idea

If you’re craving a Thanksgiving meal and don’t have the time or want to spend the effort to prepare a turkey and all the fixings than this Cranberry Chicken recipe is the perfect substitute.

Serve cranberry chicken breasts on a bed of rice with a mixed green side salad topped with lemon vinaigrette for a healthy dinner choice.

Cooking Tips:

You can substitute boneless pork chops for the chicken breast. Add a package of dried onion soup mix to the sauce to give it even more flavor.

My all time favorite baked chicken recipe is still BBQ chicken. It’s very easy to make, quick, healthy and super flavorful. Take a look at our BBQ Baked Chicken with Potato Wedges and Beans article to get the recipe and watch our how to cooking video.
