5 Ingredient Friday: Chicken with Fresh Cranberries

This week we have a super easy 5 Ingredient Friday dish! I took some chicken breasts out of the freeze one morning before working with no clue what I was going to do with them that night for dinner.  Over the course of the day I remembered that I still had some fresh cranberries in my refrigerator, so I set out to come up with something to make using those. Then I remembered that I had a few oranges leftover, so I knew this was going to be a delicious dish! Check out what’s in my Chicken with Fresh Cranberries

  • 1 lb of Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/4 cup of Orange Juice
  • 2 cups of Fresh Cranberries
  • 1 cup of Brown Sugar

In a small saucepan, combine the cranberries, brown sugar and orange juice. Cook over medium heat until the cranberries start to burst, about 15 minutes. Reduce heat to low and let it simmer for another 15 minutes or so. It should thicken up very nicely. Remove from the heat and let it cool a bit.

Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.  Coat a large frying pan with a tablespoon of olive oil. Brown the chicken breasts, making sure they are cooked on both sides.

Cooled Cranberries

Place the chicken breasts on a serving plate and spoon some of the cranberries over top. Serve!
