My dinner entry for this week:
Cranberry glazed baked chicken
Bacon wrapped brown sugar fresh green beans
Home made mashed potatoes with onion, cheese and bacon (red skinned potatoes)
Recipe for the chicken:
3 whole boneless chicken breast
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 can of whole cranberries with sauce
1 cup ketchup
1 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. lemon juice
Salt, pepper and garlic salt to taste
Put salt, pepper, and garlic salt on chicken. Spread one tbsp of butter on each. Put in dish and cover with tin foil. Cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
While chicken cooks, chop your small onion and saute in pan with oil. When onions start turning clear, add lemon juice, soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar and cranberries. Bring to boil, then let simmer.
After the 15 minutes, pull the chicken out and add the cranberry glaze to the pan completely covering the chicken. Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
Serve, then enjoy!
I must say, I did not like the idea of using cranberries because I don't like cranberry sauce. But this was AMAZING. Definitely something I want to try again! (Could not find fresh cranberries OR dried ones!)
