Prep Time

Cook Time


Grapefruit Base:
1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice Drink
1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 clove garlic, grated
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Ruby Cranberry Slaw:
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 cups shredded baby kale
2 cups shredded green cabbage
1/2 cup Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries

Ruby Honey Mustard Dip:
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

Ruby-Kissed Chicken Fingers:
1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail
1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice Drink
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
12 chicken tenders (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 ruby red grapefruit, segmented and membranes removed


In small saucepan, combine all grapefruit base ingredients; whisk until blended. Cook over medium heat until boiling and thickened, whisking frequently. Cook 30 seconds more; remove from heat.

To prepare Ruby Cranberry Slaw, in large bowl whisk together 1/4 cup cooked grapefruit base, oil and vinegar until blended. Add kale, cabbage and Craisins® Dried Cranberries; toss to mix and coat. Set aside to marinate.

For Ruby Honey Mustard Dip, in small bowl whisk together remaining cooked grapefruit base, yogurt and mustard; set aside.

For chicken fingers, pour Ruby Red juice drink and Cranberry Juice Cocktail into a shallow bowl. In a separate shallow bowl, combine flour, cumin, salt and pepper; mix well. Coat each chicken tender on both sides with juice, then flour mixture. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken to skillet in batches, if necessary. Cook until deep golden brown and cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

To serve, spoon slaw onto 4 serving plates and top with grapefruit segments. Arrange chicken fingers next to slaw and serve with Ruby Honey Mustard Dip.

Makes 4 servings.
