When you have a house full of children like we do, going out for dinner as a couple doesn’t happen very often. When we do get the chance to go out together, we prefer not to do it on a busy night like Valentine’s Day. Our Valentine’s Day includes a home cooked dinner for the entire family.

My husband and I are making healthier choices and I want to make sure we don’t lose momentum because of Valentine’s Day, so I want to avoid red meat or high calorie meals. Chicken seems like the perfect choice, and this Orange-Cranberry Chicken doesn’t just look right for the holiday, it is also very easy to make and is sure to be a hit!
