This is tender baked chicken, dressed with a spiced fruit sauce, served on top of Herongate’s favourite stuffing. How to make it right in your kitchen…


o   8 boneless chicken breasts cut into two-bite sized pieces

o   2 cups chicken broth

o   1 can whole berry cranberry sauce

o   2 large apples, peeled & chopped

o   1/2 cup raisins

o   1 tbsp spoon curry powder

o   1/2 cup concentrated orange juice

o   1 loaf of bread cut in cubes and lightly toasted or 8 cups ready made croutons.

o   2-cups finely chopped celery

o   1-cup finely chopped onion

o   1 teaspoon salt

o   1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

o   1-cup chopped walnuts

o   1/4 cup butter or margarine


Place chicken pieces in a baking dish with 2 cups of chicken broth. Bake, covered in a pre-heated oven @ 350°, for 30 minutes.

Then, remove chicken from the broth and let the excess liquid drain and discard.

While the chicken is baking, combine the following:

Cranberry, apples, raisins, curry powder and orange concentrate to make the final topping.

Can’t forget the stuffing! Sauté bread cubes until soft; celery & onion in the butter and

combine this to the bread/ croutons with salt, poultry seasoning and walnuts.


Place the stuffing into the bottom of your baking/serving pan and spread the chicken pieces evenly on top.

Cover the chicken with the cranberry mixture evenly over all (this keeps the chicken moist in the last cooking period).

Lastly, bake for 30 minutes @ 350°.

This dish can sit and wait for service on the stove top for up to 10 minutes before serving!
