Chicken with cranberry and orange sauce

2 chicken breasts
1/2 c orange juice (with bits)
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 c Craisins
1 tsp Chinese Five Spice
2 tbsp olive oil

Place all the ingredients in ziploc bag and allow to marinate at least 4 hours in the refrigerator. I left mine 6 hours, you could probably do it overnight also. Preheat oven to 325F, Place ingredients of ziploc bag in oven proof dish, cover with aluminium foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 5-10 mins. Take leftover juice and put in pan and reduce down (simmer bubbling) for appx 15 minutes over medium heat. Turn heat off, stir in a teaspoon of butter and pour "sauce" over chicken. This was delicious.
