Boston Market is best known as a rotisserie chicken joint, but one of the chain’s most beloved dishes actually goes better with turkey: cranberry walnut relish. The side started as a seasonal special back in 1992, but so many customers requested the sauce year-round that it earned a permanent spot in stores two years later. (Although it’s not actually listed on the menu, you can always order it.) Company execs never give out a recipe, so chefs in Food Network Kitchens developed this spot-on copy, perfect for your Thanksgiving feast or weeknight dinner.



  1. Finely grate the zest of half of the orange into a medium saucepan, then squeeze in all of the juice. Add the cranberries, sugar and walnuts and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens and the cranberries start to pop, about 10 minutes. Let cool.
