Balsamic cranberry roast chicken


  • Put all the ingredients for the marinade in a food processor, and beat until they are homogenized.
  • Place the chicken breasts in a baking pan and pour into the marinade.
  • Mix the marinade with the chicken very well, so that it is completely covered with the marinade.
  • Place the chicken breasts in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, so that they get the taste of the marinade.  
  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (356ο F) set to fan.
  • Take the chicken breasts out of the refrigerator. Flip them over so that the skin touches the bottom of the baking pan. On top of them, spread the extra cranberries and the thyme. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Flip them over again, so that the skin is facing upwards. In a bowl, mix the maple syrup with the balsamic vinegar and brush the chicken breasts.
  • Bake for 5-10 more minutes, until the skin turns crispy and the chicken breasts are well done.
  • Check the spices and serve with fresh thyme.
