Notes

Top Kosher Cranberry Chicken Recipe tip

While the chicken is baking, all of the juices and fats from the chicken thighs will get into the onions and help to caramelize them. These onions are super tasty, scoop them up and serve them on top of the chicken as part of the sauce. Seriously, I could eat a dish of just these onions.
