This is an awesome recipe. Even hours after supper my DH kept saying how good it was. This is a must try recipe.

As soon as I saw this recipe I knew I had to make it and so I printed it out right away, and I was not dissappointed. This was excellent. I did everything exactly as the recipe stated and was rewarded with the most delicious chicken I have ever eaten. I made it for a dinner party and everyone loved it! They all wanted the recipe, just like you said! Thanks for a great recipe!

This is outstanding and company worthy. The only substitution I made was to use dried cherries in place of dried cranberries. I would also recommend using a thick chicken breast (adjusting cooking time accordingly), slice to serve (as shown in Just Jan's photo). This is labor intensive but well worth the effort. Thanks a bunch for sharing!

This was a very tasty dish! It's not something I can logistically make often - it just takes too long with 2 small kids (I was in the kitchen about 1 1/4 hours total). But it was delish!
I used fresh cranberries and added a bit of sugar to the sauce since they aren't as sweet as dried. I used turkey bacon which I would not do again - no fat left do do the cooking with, so lost some of the flavor. I can imagine it would have been better with real bacon. I would also pound out my chicken breasts next time, as they took too long to cook through. Also, my husband didn't appreciate the massive amount of pans and dishes this produced for him to wash, but he thought it was worth it :)

This dish was a lot of work but yummy! The only change I would make is to cut up the chicken so the juices can soak into it instead of pouring on top.

Very very delicious! I didn't know that I didn't have any apple juice on hand (it is a staple in our home) so I used cranberry juice instead, why not? Hehe :) I also had to cook the chicken for WAAAAYYYY longer than suggested, perhaps my chicken breasts were extra large? The bottom line though - we will definitely be making this again!

This was really good! I didn't have apple juice so I put pieces of apple in my food processor and pulverized it into liquid. I also didn't have poultry seasoning so I used some celery salt and a little sage. I used a regular yellow onion and dried cranberries chopped. I chopped up the apple too. I pounded my chicken but I found I had to cook it longer than said with a lid on it. I fixed steamed carrots with pecans and brown sugar with it. Yum!

We REALLY enjoyed this. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. We are looking forward to serving this to our guest this holiday. I wouldn't change anything about this recipe at all. Thank you for a great dinner experience!
