Hey everyone! This month is #cranberrylove, so this month I decided to start my cranberry recipes off with a chicken recipe. This is a really easy recipe, and has a great blend of flavors in it. One of my favorite salads is a cranberry apple chicken salad (I'll add it to the bloghop below so you can find it). I don't know if its because of Thanksgiving and associating cranberry sauce with turkey, but I love combining chicken and cranberries in recipes. You can serve this chicken with your favorite rice recipe and vegetables for a complete meal!
Be sure to check out the recipes for all the other co-hosts this month, and all of the shared recipes in the blog hop. If you'd like to add your favorite cranberry recipe, add it to the blog hop. Also, come join us on twitter and just search for #cranberrylove for this month's recipes. Enjoy!

Cranberry Chicken with Gorgonzola
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
3-4 chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp chopped oregano
1/4 tsp chopped basil
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp garlic powder
crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Preheat a pan over medium heat, and add the oil and butter. Dust both sides of the chicken with the salt, pepper, mustard, and herbs. Once the butter has melted and coated the pan, add the chicken. Cook on each side for about 15 minutes.
While the chicken cooks, combine the wine, cranberries, and powder in a bowl, and let it sit.
Once the internal temperature of the chicken is 165F, remove the chicken from the pan and let it rest. Add the soaked cranberries and wine to the pan, and use a spoon to scrape the browned bits of the bottom of the pan, creating a sauce. Cook over medium low heat for about 5-10 minutes.
Serve the chicken on a pan, topped with the cranberry sauce and crumbled Gorgonzola.
