Apple Cranberry Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Montegrano

I made this up because I thought the flavors would match perfectly--and they do. The balsamic vinegar is really the key ingredient and adds a nice zip. This is for one serving, but it can be doubled, tripled, etc. to feed a larger crowd.

This was fab. I found a cheese grater was best to grate the carrots, sometimes I use it to grate apples into my recipe too so I think I'll do that next time to create a kind of warm slaw. Added UNsweetened dried cranberries, UNsweetened apple sauce, and walnuts as well.. Completely neglected to add sugar but it still was a bit too sweet for my taste. Love this recipe for fall though, its exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely keep it and experiment with it.
