Catalina Cranberry Chicken

This has become the families new favorite chicken recipe. (this is no small task for my 11 year old, who HATES chicken). My husband's exact quote after the first time he tasted this chicken "You can make this every single night, this is the BEST chicken you have ever made"! Happy Husband, Happy Wife!

This chicken is so great, you can make it in the oven, crock-pot and even BBQ. It all tastes so good!

Catalina Cranberry Chicken
from Kraft Food & Family Magazine

6 to 8 Chicken Thigh Pieces
1 can (16 oz) whole cranberry sauce
1 bottle Catalina Dressing
1 envelope onion soup mix

OVEN: Heat oven to 350, place chicken in 9x13 baking dish. Mix & Pour remaining ingredients over chicken. Bake for 50 minutes or until done.

BBQ: Mix all ingredients together and marinate the chicken in sauce (overnight); BBQ on the grill until chicken is done.

CROCK-POT: Mix all ingredients together and place the chicken thighs along with sauce in the crock-pot. Cook on low for 4 hours or less. Do NOT overcook.

I LOVE Linky Parties, what a great way to mix and mingle with lots of bloggers! This recipe is linked to: What's on Your Plate, Real Food Wednesday, What's Cooking Wednesday, Frugal Food Fridays and Crockpot Wednesdays
