Entrees with Cranberries

crystalginger Dec 30, 2009 06:22 PM

I'm interested in playing a bit with cranberries, and am not finding many recipes online using cranberries as a main ingredient. My grandmother used to make cranberry chicken, which is kind of the style I'm looking for. It seems most recipes are desserts, cranberry sauces/relishes/chutneys, etc. I feel like it could be added to stews to up the flavor, might be a good glaze for duck, or fit in with a risotto or grits. Anybody have any tried-and-true favorites?

    I have not made this, but I came across it recently and thought it looked interesting.


    Also, this Joan Nathan recipe for Fruited Brisket has cranberries in it. You could add more than the 1/2 cup that it calls for. I made it once and it was good.


    And I also have a recipe for Chicken Tenderloins with Cranberry Mustard Sauce that a friend gave to me in a recipe exchange a few years ago. I have made it many times. If you are interested, I could post the recipe.

      I think that even cranberry chicken would consider chicken as the primary ingredient. Have you consider a cranberry crusted lamb or a cranberry lamb stew?
