My trip down memory lane continues with this super flavorful chicken dish. (If you don’t get the memory lane reference, check out the recipe for Porcupines.) I had completely forgotten about this recipe until I saw it recently in the cookbook my mom put together for me as a wedding present.
I believe the recipe came from my Mother-in-Law who first found it on the back of the package of dried cranberries. I remember loving this recipe and making it often for company.
Thankfully, I just needed to make a few tweaks to get this in shape for our paleo ways and it’s just as delicious as ever!
The sauce is the best part, so make sure you serve this with some cauliflower rice or regular rice to soak up all that yumminess! Ignore the fact that I didn’t take my own advice in the picture below. Sometimes you just don’t have everything you need!
Because this recipe uses chicken breasts, it cooks super fast, making it a great weeknight meal. But it’s still special enough for company. The only trick with this recipe is finding cranberries without added sugar or oil. I’ve found this brand from Steve’s Paleo Goods to be yummy and only sweetened with fruit juice. You can buy them at Whole Foods or Amazon.
To show you how simple this recipe is to prepare, I’ve made you a video. You’ll see how I adapt when someone (not mentioning any names here) is late getting home from work.
