Chicken with Cranberry Barbecue Sauce

Like all barbecue sauces, this one contains flavors ranging from sweet to spicy. The chicken is pounded thin so it cooks evenly, but you'll need to cook it in two batches because all six breast halves won't fit in the pan at one time.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 3 tablespoons sauce)
