This is one of my family's favorite dinners! If you want to reduce calories and fat cut off the skin before frying the chicken and use less vegetable oil. I've tried many other versions of cranberry chicken but keep coming back to this recipe! It's delicious.

This recipe sounds great. Will be making it this weekend. I just have to figure how to reduce portions. Also, if people are not smart enough to figure out the nutritional values and calorie count for a dish the answer is easy - do not make it.

Love, love love it when the nutrition information is included with the recipe. Being a Weight Watcher I can calculate the points using the information.

OK, folks - these recipes dont have nutritional values. If your diet is so strict you MUST have them and aren't experienced enough to figure them out on your own - then you need a more detailed site. If your diet requires those values and has for very long - then you know how to figure it out. There are too many places where you can "hunt" up a similar recipes that spells it out for you. Enjoy this site for what it is - or go where everything is taken care of for you . But I have to ask...If you are that close at following the info when you do get it?

I agree. Mr. Food is about good tasting recipes. It's not a specialized diet site.

This sounds like a delicious recipe. Would it be possible for Nutritional Information to be included in future receipes? Thank You
