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.

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! The Test Kitchen
