Savory Chicken Cheesecake With Cranberry-Orange Relish

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Acerast

A delicious appetizer for holiday gatherings when cranberries are plentiful. My dear MIL made her own cranberry relish - and I don't have her recipe but my mom made hers like Mimi from Maine's #202126 or pick one up at the grocery store during the November-December holiday months.
