Chicken Breasts with Cranberry Salsa and Cilantro Cream

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by ciao4293

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.
