Chicken with Cranberries

Author: Canadian Living

Chicken is a good partner for tart fruits, such as cranberries, especially in a well-spiced sauce. Serve with rice or bread and 1/2 cup (125 mL) plain yogurt mixed with 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped fresh mint (or 1 tbsp/15 mL dried) to spoon over the chicken.

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs chicken pieces skinned
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion thinly sliced
  • 6 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 1 cup fresh cranberry
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 5 oranges halved
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

Method

In plastic bag, toss chicken with flour to coat. Reserve remaining flour.

In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, about 10 minutes. Transfer to plate; pour off fat in pan.

Add remaining oil to pan; reduce heat to medium. Add onion, garlic, coriander, cinnamon, pepper and hot pepper flakes; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with reserved flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Stir in cranberries, stock, orange juice, sugar and salt ; bring to boil. Return chicken to pan; arrange orange slices over chicken. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, occasionally spooning sauce over chicken, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 20 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle with mint.
