  2. Step 2

    In small bowl, combine dried cranberries, garlic and thyme.
  3. Step 3

    Remove tenderloins from chicken breasts and reserve for another use. Cut a horizontal slit through the centre of each of the breasts to make a pocket.

Add cranberries, broth and sugar; cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until cranberries begin to break down.
  5. Step 5

    Pour over chicken breasts and roast in 400°F (200°C) oven for about 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Cut chicken breasts in half to serve.
