Autumn Chicken

Rated as 3.21 out of 5 Stars

"Chicken breasts browned and simmered in a very berry sauce. Here is a great substitute for a full course holiday dinner. It can also be a comforting dish to serve on a cold winter night. Easy to make, low in fat and just plain scrumptious!! Serve with wild and basmati rice and seasonal steamed vegetables."

Very easy to make and delicious. Lemon keeps it from being too sweet. We substituted canned cranberry sauce for fresh cranberries, which worked very well, and also made a good side accent. I ...

This recipe was okay, but we all agreed that cranberries and blueberries are better left to turkey. The sauce also seeps into the chicken, making an unappetizing purple chicken breast.
