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 Catalina chicken recipe the other night and we absolutely loved it. You will only need three simple ingredients. 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 Catalina Chicken with creamy white rice. Plain white sticky rice, Jasmine rice or even garlic mashed potatoes would have been just as good. As you can see in the picture, we had plenty of the cranberry sauce to pour over the chicken and rice.

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 our lemon lime vinaigrette for a healthy dinner choice.
