I bought a can of Ocean Spray® Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce. Glad to find some online recipes by Ocean Spray ... tried out this easy cranberry roast chicken. I used pumpkin instead of sweet potatoes.
We liked the sweet tangy cranberry sauce with tender roasted chicken.
Recipe source : Oceanspray
Below my slightly modified version as I have replaced with pumpkins and halved the recipe.
Cranberry Roast Chicken and Pumpkin
Makes 2 servings
200g pumpkin, thinly sliced
2 boneless chicken breast (cut fairly thick chunks and seasoned with 1/2 teaspoon of salt for about 15 minutes)
200g Ocean Spray® Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
40ml olive or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Rinse pumpkin, peeled skin and pat dry.
Place sliced pumpkin evenly in Pyrex dish (or baking dish of your choice).
Place chicken on top. Whisk remaining ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. Pour mixture evenly over chicken and pumpkin.
Bake uncovered for 50 minutes or until chicken is cooked throughout and pumpkin are tender.
|I forgot to pat dry the chicken pieces,
resulting more water at the base.
The Dōngzhì Festival 冬至 or Winter Solstice Festival is one of the most important festivals celebrated by the Chinese and other East Asians during the Dongzhi solar term (winter solstice) on or around December 22 (according to East Asia time). This year, the festival falls on Monday, December 22 ... just a few days before Christmas. Traditionally, I preferred homecooked dinner instead of dining out when we celebrate 冬至. And I like to have 'East meets West' kinda celebration ... Cranberry Roast Chicken and Pumpkin + Dessert Tang Yuan 汤圆 !
For the tang yuan, I just added a few drops of food colouring to the glutinous rice flour and had some fun in shaping them like flowers and gifts .... hee hee !
