Beach Girl´s suggestions of doubling the cranberry topping and omitting the cracker crumbs is the one I would recommend too. It tastes really good !
This was very delicious. I loved the cranberry taste so much, next time I'll double the cranberry topping and omit the cracker crumbs. The topping adhered to the chicken well and was nicely browned. YUM. Thanks for a good recipe, Laurie.
