    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This recipe might not look like much, but wait until you try it! If you can,try to use the fresh thyme in place of dryed, it really makes a difference in taste! If you want you can use chardonnay in place of the white wine, I use chardonnay and it worked out quite well. This recipe can be doubled if desired. Serve this with potato pancakes for a great meal!

      I agree - lovely! My vote is for green beans and mashed potatoes on the side...

      This is a lovely recipe and a great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce, or in my case, cranberry chutney. Next though, I will not make as much sauce. My husband is not a big sauce lover and left most of his on the side of the plate. We had it with fried potatoes. I will certainly make this again!

      Really liked this recipe and the tastes. I made this as a request from me for leftover cranberry sauce. WHO KNEW?! I did sub in bonless chicken breasts for chops as that is what I had on hand. Adjusted cooking times for the chicken a few extra minutes. Very good sauce on chicken and what aroma. Not too sweet and DH thought it was thumbs up! Thank you again.
