Cranberry Citrus Chicken

My newest kitchen experiment.

So since my wife decided to do the “blog post once a day” thing, you’ll likely see more of me.

So, my wife told me she was making dinner.  Then she sat on the couch, opened her laptop, and then told me to make dinner.  She gave me that face.  Guys, you know the face.  That “you know you love me” look.  The look that practically guarantees she gets her way.

So I walk into the kitchen, and try to figure out something good.
I thawed out some chicken.  Put it in a frying pan, and puzzled my way through the seasoning cabinet.  Nothing my wife would like.  I need something NEW, something unique, and something that’ll WOW her.

I looked in the fridge and found something good.  Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing.  Lightbulb.

I call it Cranberry Citrus Chicken.  Ingredients areas follows.
-Chicken Breasts
-Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing
-Cranberry Juice
-Grated Orange Peels
-Lemon Juice
-Lemon Pepper Seasoning

Fill a frying pan with a combination of cranberry juice and the vinaigrette, about a 1:2 ratio, enough to fill the bottom of the pan about 1/4 of an inch.  Put in the chicken. Put in a dash or two of lemon juice in the pan and grate about half of an orange peel onto the chicken.  Season the chicken with lemon pepper.  Put on med-low heat and cover the pan.  Cook until its done.  Top chicken with craisens and almonds.

Final Product.
I served it with garlic mashed potatoes.  And after all of this, she LOVED it.  She even wanted to add it to our recipe book.  Not bad for grabbing things last minute.
