Ingredients

Directions

  1. Using a rolling pin, pound the chicken between 2 sheets of wax paper until they are of uniform thickness. Heat the oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers and the garlic browns. (Don't burn the garlic.)
  2. Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden, 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Add the salt, pepper, chicken broth, thyme, and lemon zest. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 3 minutes longer or until the chicken is fork-tender.
  3. Remove the chicken to a platter and keep warm. Increase heat to high and boil the sauce until thickened or syrupy, 3 to 5 minutes. Whisk in the goat cheese and pour the sauce over the chicken.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
