spicy yet fruity

my mom gave me this recipe a couple of years ago (hi mom!). i love it becuase its an interesting mix of flavors and textures. its quick and super easy and requires very few cooking things so clean up is easy too.

cranberry salsa chicken:

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 T. olive oil, if you are using a nonstick pan then you can get away with some spray stuff and cut calories here
16 oz. jar chunky salsa
1 cup dried cranberries
¼ cup water
2 cloved minced garlic
1 T. honey
¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground cumin
¼ cup slivered almonds
2 cup hot cooked couscous or rice or mash potatoes, its up to you

sautee chicken in oil until browned on both sides. in small bowl, combine salsa, cranberries, water, garlic, honey, cinnamon, cumin. pour over chicken. cover and cook 10-15 minutes until chicken is done. serve over your couscous or rice or taters. sprinkle with almonds. enjoy!

    Thanks for reminding me of this recipe. We hanen't had it for a long time - sounds good for this weekend. Hope you are being able to stay cool.

    I like the photo of the 'mouse' in the kitty bowl. I keep forgetting to tell you that Luciano likes his mouse toy.
