Cranberry sauce is used in this dish with ground ginger and the chicken is layered on top of the sweet potatoes. Makes a nice meal.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A very easy and delicious chicken breast meal to throw together any day of the week. In fact, it could be an untraditional Thanksgiving meal if you're not serving a large group. It has all the flavors you expect during the fall months. The cranberry mixture is slightly sweet and tart with a hint of spice. The sweet potatoes cook in their natural juices from the chicken while baking. A delicious fall dinner. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
