Let's Make Cranberry Chicken

Does it seem like you are doing a lot more cooking these days?  That is precisely what I'm thinking out loud about today!

I dug out some of my old recipes recently and ran across this quick, easy and delicious Cranberry Chicken recipe.  It's so good, I just have to share it with you!

Here's What You Need
4-6 Chicken Breast
1 can Whole Cranberry Sauce
3/4 cup French Dressing
1 envelope Onion Soup Mix

Here's What You Do
In a gallon-size plastic bag, dump the can of whole cranberry sauce.  Pour in the French dressing and add the envelope of onion soup mix.  

Close the bag and squish it around to combine all the ingredients.  If you have the time and patience, this could be a great task for a kiddo to help with.  

Add in the chicken and squish some more.  At this point, I usually like to let this set in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.  If you're in a hurry, you can skip this waiting.  

When you're ready to bake, place the contents of the bag in a baking dish and place in a preheated 400-degree oven.  Let it bake for 30-40 minutes.  The chicken should be 165 degrees when finished.

That's it!  I told you it was easy!  If you want to make a pack or two ahead of time, it freezes great.  You can just pop the bag with all the ingredients in the freezer for a future dinner.  Then when you want to have it for dinner you just have to defrost and bake.  This is also one of those recipes I like to freeze and give to a friend who just had a baby or is recuperating.


Now it's your turn.  What are you thinking out loud about today?  Link up and share!
