Cranberry-Topped Chicken with Baby Potato Sage Toss

Doesn't this look amazing!! ...I thought it was!!

I love trying different recipes! I LOVE the Company's Coming recipe book series! This recipe comes from their book 'Healthy in a Hurry'

Cranberry-Topped Chicken
1 tsp Olive Oil
1/4 cup Finely chopped onion
1 Garlic clove minced (or 1/4 tsp powder)

Cranberry Sauce
1 cup fresh (or frozen) cranberries *(I used craisins)
1/4 cup low-sodium prepared chicken broth
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/8 tsp parsley flakes
1/8 tsp dried sage
salt, sprinkle
Cayenne pepper, sprinkle

4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
Seasoned salt, sprinkle
pepper, sprinkle

Preheat gas barbecue to medium. Heat olive oil in small frying pan on medium. Add onion and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened.

HINT (If it's too cold to barbecue, you can place the chicken on a greased broiling pan and broil on the top rack in the oven for about 5 minutes per side until it is no longer pink inside.)

Cranberry Sauce
Add all 7 ingredients. Stir. Bring to a boil. Boil uncovered, for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cranberries split and sauce is slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Cover to keep warm.

Sprinkle chicken with seasoned salt and pepper. Cook on greased grill for about 5 minutes per side until no longer pink inside. Transfer to plate. Spoon sauce over chicken. Serves 4.

Baby Potato Sage Toss
1 lb Baby red potatoes, quartered *(I used the potatoes I had on hand)
2 Tbsp Chopped fresh sage
1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Honey Dijon Dressing
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp White Vinegar
2 tsp Liquid honey
1/2 tsp Dijon (or prepared) mustard

4 cups chopped or torn green leaf lettuce, lightly pakced *(I used a mixture of romaine and spinach)
1 cup Sugar snap peas, trimmed in half
1/3 cup Chopped green onion

Preheat oven to 400F. Combine first 3 ingredients in large bowl. Toss Well. Spread in single layer in ungreassed 9x13 inch baking dish. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes until tender.

Honey Dijon Dressing: Meanwhile, whisk all 4 ingredients in small bowl until combined. Makes about 1/4 cup dressing.

Combine remaining 3 ingredients in large bowl. Add potatoes and dressing. Toss well, serves 4.
ENJOY!! :)
