This riff on the Chinese takeout staple incorporates the bright, fresh flavors of the winter season.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 2 tbsp. Schnucks olive oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. minced ginger
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary, plus additional sprigs for garnish
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 Schnucks bone-in chicken thighs
  • 2 oranges, peeled (if desired) and sliced crosswise

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan bring cranberry juice to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 15–20 minutes or until juice has reduced to about 1/4 cup. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. In a small bowl combine olive oil, garlic, ginger, rosemary and salt. Rub chicken with oil mixture and place, skin-side down, onto skillet. Cook 3–4 minutes or until browned. Flip chicken, transfer skillet to oven and bake 15 minutes.
  3. Add oranges to skillet. Bake 10–15 minutes more or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  4. Transfer chicken and oranges to a platter; let cool slightly. Meanwhile, pour pan juices into saucepan with cranberry reduction and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, just until warmed through. Pour over top of chicken and oranges. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and/or parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.
