Nutritional Information



6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse salt
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 cup Ocean Spray® Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
3 tablespoons tequila
1 teaspoon lime juice
1-1/2 tablespoons chopped coriander
Lime wedges


Slice breasts in half horizontally. Pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin to about 1 cm thickness.

Heat oil in a large fry pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a warm serving platter and sprinkle lightly with coarse salt. Cover loosely with foil; keep warm until serving time.

Add garlic to fry pan and cook over low heat 1 minute. Stir in cranberry sauce and tequila; bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer 5 minutes or until sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in lime juice and coriander.

Spoon some of the sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with additional coriander, if desired. Serve immediately with remaining sauce, lime wedges and coarse salt. Makes 6 servings.
