Chicken With Cranberry-Dijon Mustard Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

The cranberry- Dijon mustard sauce was originally a dip recipe found on and switched to a sauce for chicken. Basic Cranberry Sauce is identical to the way I prepare homemade cranberry sauce. I try to keep a bag of frozen whole cranberries on hand for these type of recipes. Super easy for a weeknight meal.

Very good! I baked it instead of frying it, at 350 for about 60 min. I doubled the sauce but should have tripled it to have enough to spoon over the finished chicken and maybe spoon over some rice too. Taste was excellent and it was SO easy to make! Thanks!
