Recipe by BecR2400
READY IN: 40mins




  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper, cinnamon, allspice, 1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest, and the ginger.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully add the chicken breast halves and sear for about 2 minutes on each side. Now add the 2 tablespoons water or apple juice and reduce heat to a simmer, cover pan, and cook until chicken is done, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and keep warm.
  • To make sauce, add the cranberries, diced apple, chutney, 1 teaspoon grated orange zest, orange juice, brown sugar, and cider vinegar to the pan, stirring up any browned bits. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring all the while. Then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring from time to time, until some cranberries begin to burst and apples are softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Place the chicken in the sauce, toss to coat and heat through briefly.
  • Serve sauce with chicken, accompanied with rice or stuffing and your favorite seasonal vegetables.
