Basting Sauce
1/4
cup orange marmalade
2
tablespoons orange juice
1
tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
Chicken and Vegetables
4
bone-in skinless chicken breasts
2
medium dark-orange sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
1
medium onion, cut into 8 wedges
1
teaspoon olive oil
1/3
cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/4
cup orange juice
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In 1-quart saucepan, cook basting sauce ingredients over low heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until marmalade is melted.
  2. In 15x10x1-inch pan, place chicken breasts. Brush with half of the basting sauce. In medium bowl, toss potatoes and onion with oil; place around chicken. Bake 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, soak cranberries in 1/4 cup orange juice.
  4. Brush chicken again with remaining basting sauce. Stir gently to coat vegetables with pan juices. With slotted spoon, sprinkle cranberries over vegetables; drizzle with juice. Bake about 20 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (170°F), and vegetables are tender.
