“This is based on Mark Bittman's "Chicken with cranberries and mushrooms" from his "Best Recipes in the World" cookbook. My husband made this, and it was adapted due to ingredients that we had on hand. You can use chicken breast instead of thighs. Sorry about the lack of a photo, we thought it smelled so good that we devoured it before thinking about the camera!”
