{Crock Pot} Cranberry Chicken

October 09, 2013

It's chicken in the crock pot..woohoo! We haven't had one of these on the blog in a while, have we?  That isn't too say that chicken in the crock pot hasn't been consumed around here since then.  As many of my readers know..we love chicken.  We adore chicken.   We eat it like it's going out of style.   It's so versatile and when you can literally dump food in a pot and come back in a few hours and have dinner..it's darn fabulous.  That's what this is.  A one pot wonder.   A great sweet, a little tangy, chicken can be served with rice, noodles or on a nice bun for a sandwich.
Pretty simple..we loved this one.  A great family dinner!
{small side note:  there are two options for this recipe: packaged mix/bottled dressing and another if you desire to make those items homemade.}
