In response to the previous review, I make a variation of this recipe with a can of whole bean cranberry sauce instead of the juice. One can is enough to make the recipe three times. Instead of dumping the ingredients into a baking dish, I freeze everything but the chicken in a quart ziploc. I brown the chicken on the stovetop and then add the ingredients from the bag with a little chicken broth and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes. The meat gets really tender that way. I have also used pork chops, which I think are even better.
