  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, finely chopped
  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves (about 2 1/4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, if desired


  1. Heat grill.
  2. Combine cranberry sauce, cumin, lime peel, lime juice and jalapeno pepper in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking often, just until glaze is smooth.
  3. Set aside 1 cup glaze to serve with chicken.
