Cranberry Orange Chicken

This is a variation of a Cranberry Chicken recipe that turned out scrumptious.  I have to say, it wasn’t the prettiest dish to photograph.  It’s one of those really tasty, but kinda ugly dishes.  I gave it my best shot, because we all thought is was worthy of the blog.  I love the blend of cranberry and orange flavors.  The tangy flavor of the onion soup mix goes great with the sweet and tart flavors of the marmalade and cranberry sauce.  I recommend serving the chicken over a bed of brown rice.  The rice soaks up all the sauce and tastes amazing.  Enjoy~
