    ciao's Note:

    Very fast and very easy, but oustanding flavor! The flavors of the cranberry salsa with the cilantro cream are a surprisingly good combination. One word of advice: the cilantro is a standout flavor in this dish, so if you don't like the herb, you may not like this one.

      We served this at a dinner party & it was a huge hit! I had to make copies for everyone. I used regular cranberry sauce instead of the orange/cranberry. It's easy & so tasty.

      This was good in our opinion but not great. The cilantro cream was okay but I think it could be done differently for a different presentation and taste delivery. Possibly the cream could be thinned using a bit of the cranberry sauce (warmed to mix well) and then drizzled over the chicken. Add a sprig of cilantro on top of cream for a colorful presentation.

      This is a *lovely* dish for company. It really made us look good – thanks! :-) For our tastes, I knew the citrus would be an integral part of this dish. So to remedy the fact that I only had regular plain cranberry sauce, I added 1 t. lime zest (any citrus zest would work, I’m sure – but hey, you have to get those limes for their juice, so might as well use their zest!) This really worked well, we thought. True to my name, I also added a little more chopped jalapeno than called for – and also, 1/8 t. cumin, which I felt added to the Southwestern flavor. None of us could say enough about the cilantro cream! My gosh, so easy and sooo “gourmet tasting.” I’m trying to think of other uses for it… as a dip paired with salsa, as a topping for taco salads… In fact, Ciao, you might think of posting that as a stand-alone recipe - it was superb. Thanks so much!
