    This is without a double the easiest and most tastie chicken dish I have ever had. The ingred's are simple and handy to have in the cupboard. Lots of sauce forms with this recipe so over rice or pasta it is great! Thks.

    My family did not care for this recipe. They thought the sauce was too watery and since I used dark and white meat it was greasy. Next time I plan to use either lean pork or white meat only.

    We liked this a lot, but next time, I think I'll use more barbeque sauce, and a little less cranberry. I served it over rice, which caught a lot of the sauce. Overall, very tasty!

    Really awesome. Even my husband, who is not big on "fruit and meat" combos, loved it. Of course he didn't pick up on the cranberry part.

    Easy and tasty, but I agree with Peggy - you really need to serve this with rice or pasta. I was in a rush at dinner time and just served it with vegetable -- since the sauce is not super thick, we had a hard time enjoying the sauce. Rice or pasta would be perfect.


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
