Ingredients

  • 2 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • ½ cup frozen or fresh cranberries, divided
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp liquid coconut aminos
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 cups snow peas

Instructions

  • Make the marinade: Combine 1 Tbsp olive oil, ¼C of the cranberries, coconut aminos, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and minced garlic in the vessel of a blender and pulse until smooth.
  • Trim chicken thighs of all visible fat and silver skin. Place chicken in marinade and refrigerate. This can be done the day before.
  • Place chicken and marinade in a baking dish. Add the remaining ¼C cranberries to the pan. Bake, uncovered for 25-30 minutes, until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°.
  • While chicken is backing, sauté snow peas in 1 Tbsp olive oil for 2-3 minutes. They will turn a beautiful bright green.
  • Plate chicken and snow peas as in photograph.

Notes

Low-sodium soy sauce or low-sodium tamari sauce can be used in place of liquid coconut aminos.
