skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 (16 ounce) can
whole cranberry sauce
2 (1 ounce) packages
dry onion soup mix
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 substituted Catalina dressing for the French. This was very good, Maybe a little too sweet. My son and his friend took all the sauce off their chicken before they ate it.
I used skinless thighs instead---very moist, flavorful recipe! Could not be easier if I tried. I was a little leary of the combo of ingredients, but worked BEAUTIFULLY!!!
