"This is an incredibly easy recipe - and delicious! Just mix it up before going to work, then pop it in the oven when you get home in the evening. The sauce that forms while baking tastes great on rice." — Heather

FANTASTIC! A MUST for your kitchen cookbook! There's just two of us, and let me tell you, my man loves his new bride all the more when I fill our home with the wonderful aroma of this dish. This is a great meal to work with kids on in that it's very easy to make--if you're not kitchen savy, try this one--you'll wow the crowds! *** USE THE WHOLE-JELLIED CRANBERRY SAUCE-IT'LL MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE
Good recipe, has a classic flavor. I seasoned chicken w/ lawry's. Chicken was moist. Served w/ rice and salad.
I cut recipe in 1/2, used 3 chicken breasts, 1/2 can of jellied cranberries, 1/2 packet of Lipton Onion Soup Mix, and 1/2 cup of Western (light) dressing. Baked for one hour with foil on, 15 minutes with foil off - DEE-LISH!!! Would make this again ..... soon.
I didn't have any french dressing or onion soup mix, so I made the dressing and chopped an onion and added it to the mixture. We had it with salad and plain, white rice and it was very good.
I needed a recipe for a snowy, fall day & this recipe was perfect! The chicken was so moist & flavorful with plenty of sauce to spoon over the top. If you have members of your family who don't care of cranberries, but you do, make this! You wouldn't even know that the recipe was titled cranberry chicken if you saw it & the taste is so dynamic that you can't really pin-point what's in it. Only use 1 packet of the onion soup mix. That is plenty & it won't over power like other reviewers have complained about.
Great recipe. Used jellied cranberries, ff Catalina dressing and 2 T dried, minced onions in place of the soup mix to cut down on the sodium. The sauce is delicious and had over brown rice.
AWESOME! I LOVE this recipe, and even my two year old and very picky four year old liked it - he had thirds! I took suggestions and only used one onion packet and whole cranberry sauce. I actually used Kraft FREE French dressing and chicken thighs for this and it was delicious. Perfect combo of flavors, a little sweet, not sour, but a little kick. Will definitely be making this again!
My mom gave me this same recipe years ago. We use a lower temp though and cook for a few hours and the chicken is so tender! You can readily adapt it to a crockpot too. WOnderful flavor, even though the ingredient list seems odd, you won't be disappointed. It's a great company favorite too. Everyone loves it and will want the recipe.
