ISO Cranberry Chicken Ideas

i have a can of cranberry sauce and a bag of dried cranberries. i want to make something with chicken breasts and maybe brie cheese and toasted pecans.
i might just melt the cranberry sauce down and pour it over, then lay the brie over that and let it melt down and sprinkle it with the pecan pieces and the dried cranberries and serve it with steamed green beans. think that would be good?

Luvs, why don't you stuff the chicken breasts with the brie, dried cranberries and nuts and make a sauce with the cranberry sauce. I bet that would be yum.

thanks, alix!
i was worried i'd lose my filling if i stuffed them, but hadn't thought of just stuffing them with the brie alone and using the cranberry sauce as a sauce in and of itself.

I've made Mish's brie stuffed chicken breasts a few times now and my family LOVES them. So I think having a cranberry sauce over them would only improve them. Let us know how it turns out.

okay! i'll let you know how they are!
hey, could you create a link to marge's recipe? (if you can. it's okay if you can't, of course.)
i'll have 3 chicken breasts and i'll only use one, so i would like some other ideas for the leftovers besides curried chicken salad.
thanks, alix!

Luvs, here's another idea:
6-8 layers of Phyllo dough, with melted butter brushed between each layer,
then place 1/2 of a chicken breast, top with brie and cranberries,
then fold up like a package. Top with more butter and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
Repeat for remaining ingreds.

Bake @ 350 or so till done (I'd say 30-45 minutes, perhaps?)

I can't remember if I've posted this here before but it's a great, easy recipe and we have it often.

Souper Cranberry Chicken
Quick, easy & tasty. This recipe is from the Cambell Soup collection - I love it
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I use chicken tenders)


1/4 cup cranberry juice
1/4 cup fresh orange juice


1 can campbell cream of mushroom soup
3 tablespoons dried cranberries or craisins


1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped or 1teaspoon dried sage

salt & pepper to taste



1. Saute the chicken in the tablespoon oil until browned.
2. Add remaining ingredients, cover& simmer for 5-10 minutes.
3. Serve with rice or noodles.


2-4 servings
25 minutes (10 mins prep time, 15 mins cook time )
