Cranberry Onion Chicken

Many of you are glad that college football is over so your husbands can get back to normal. For J, college basketball is King. Especially Duke basketball. J's uncle went to Duke law school and has had the whole family cheering for their basketball team since they were young. I was just watching my exciting season opener of One Tree Hill when I pressed pause to finish off dinner, and BAM...the Duke game is on TV. At least we missed the first half. Truthfully I have to admit, I am ok with J watching TV sometimes since I am on it about 97% of the time...and at least I have Words with Friends while the game is on.

I had a customer tell me about this yummy pantry recipe. It is a great way to get the flavors you love from the holidays without doing all the slave work to get them. You may feel a little burnt out on turkey and dressing right now, but in a month or so when that wears off, here is your solution!

Cranberry Onion Chicken
1 bottle French Dressing
1 can cranberry sauce
1 package onion soup mix
1-2 pound chicken pieces (breasts, legs, thighs)
salt and pepper
Stir together dressing, onion soup mix and cranberry sauce.
Since I was only cooking for J and I, this was wayyyy too much sauce for our few pieces of chicken. I saved half of it in the freezer for the next time I make this meal.
Place chicken in baking dish and season with salt and pepper.
Drizzle sauce over chicken.
Bake on 375 for 40 minutes.
I made a chicken stuffing box mix to serve with the chicken and the sauce, it was delicious!
