This is such a beautiful dish! So good your company will talk about it long after the party is over. I took the recipe for my mom's pork tenderloin and turned it into this. It's good to fix any day of the week also.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Would this be great during the holidays? Absolutely! If you're cooking for a smaller crowd or don't want to serve turkey, this is something your guests will love. It makes a great weeknight meal too. The mix of cranberry sauce with the bbq sauce makes the chicken tangy and sweet. It's super easy to make, juicy and delicious!

Ingredients

6
bone-in split chicken breasts or 1 broiler fryer cut up (I remove the skin)
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
black pepper
4 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
chopped onion
1/2 c
thinly sliced celery
1 can(s)
whole-berry cranberry sauce, 16 oz.
1 c
regular or honey barbecue sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Salt and pepper the chicken. Melt butter in a large skillet and brown chicken on all sides. Transfer to a greased 9x13x2 baking dish.
2
Saute onions and celery in the chicken and butter drippings until tender. Add cranberry and barbecue sauces. Mix well and cook 2-3 more minutes. Pour evenly over top of chicken.
3
Bake uncovered at 350 for 1 1/2 hours or until chicken juices run clear. Spoon sauce over chicken every 15 minutes of baking time. Arrange chicken on a serving platter and pour sauce over all pieces.
