What's Cookin' in the Country?

Happy Monday after Christmas! Are you as ready as I am to eat "normal" again?  Well, if you happen to have an extra can of Cranberry sauce leftover from your festivities, you must pour it over chicken or pork and make this dish!  I did it in the crock pot for Sunday dinner and it was great!  Not too caloric or fattening, but plenty heavy on flavor ~ you'll love it!

Cranberry Chicken
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 can whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp orange zest
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp cinnamon
I also added about 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the crock pot

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place chicken in greased 13  9 x 2 inch baking dish.  Bake for 20 minutes.  While chicken is cooking, combine remaining ingredients.  Spoon cranberry mixture over chicken.  Return to oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.

My menu:
Cranberry Chicken
Rice medley
Petite Peas
Toasted Cheese Bread

Do you have any clever uses for holiday food items?

With love from my country kitchen,
