I made this for 2, but with some AWESOME additions!!! I juiced 1 orange and added it to the other ingredients, along with about 1 tsp of orange zest!!!! YUMMY!! The orange juice & zest just gave it that extra kick! Will make over and over! Some of the best chicken I ever made.

I'm sorry to say this, but my family hated this recipe! We threw this dinner away after a couple bites and looked around the kitchen for something else to eat. Sorry!

This chicken turned out very tender with a very flavorful sauce. I cooked it in a slow cooker on high for 3 hrs b/c I didn't have time to cook right before dinner and served it over rice.

We loved it!! Have made this recipe several times and will continue. I prefer using only 1 package of onion soup mix and I let the chicken breasts soak in mixture in the fridge overnight. This is one of my family's favorite dinners. Great with rice.

This was pretty good. I don't much care for cranberries in a recipe...too tart for my taste...but this was good. I do want to say that I am tired of posters like "Auntie Pat" as her/their reviews are always based on healthy ingredients, as if they are the food police and know better than the rest of us. This is NOT a site based on healthy ingredients so she, and others who feel the same, should just stick to sites that only promote healthy living. If I wanted only recipes that are good for me and my family, I'd seek them out. OK? LOVE this site!!!

I was really scared about these ingredients going together, felt like something I would have made while pregnant and couldn't put my finger on what I wanted, so I had it all :-) Honestly though, it was really good, sauce was nice and thick, like a rich barbeque sauce. My husband ate it, said he would eat it again, but it should be in the "make every three or four weeks" file-he's really picky though-thanks for providing the recipe-and making some of us take the great risk!

This recipe was so easy and so yummy! There were no leftovers! The cranberry sauce was especially great over white rice. I would highly recommend this to everyone! YYUUUMMMYYY!!

I used 4 chicken breasts but this makes a ton of sauce, so I recommend using 6. Also used Russian dressing & only 1 pkg onion soup mix. Very tasty...kind of a sweet & sour/tangy flavor.
