People say they hate fish but when you try my easy marinated salmon, you’ll take back everything you ever said. Same thing with these brussels sprouts.

Try it with pork or turkey breast too.

It is quite easy to make. First you cook the onions. Then you bake the chicken and finally top with the cranberry marinade to caramelize. At my home it is an aroma that lifts spirits and always brings smiles to faces. If you like cranberry, try my favorite crockpot cranberry meatballs.
