Cranberry Lane Chicken for Dinner

We all have them....
Those recipes that are so simple,
but so especially good, that we go to them
time and time again.
One of those recipes for me is

First of all, the combination of ingredients is just strange.
If you just read the recipe you'd probably think,
"Nope," and move on to something else.
But, I'm giving it a personal endorsement.
It's simple.
It's good.

Mix together:

1 can cranberry sauce w/berries
1 8-oz bottled French dressing
1 pkg. Onion Soup Mix

Pour over 4-6 chicken breasts in a casserole dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
It's good with rice as a side.

Why the name?
There's a darling little shop nearby called
Cranberry Lane.
It's a home decor/gift kind of place you always hit
when you're out shopping with girlfriends.
One holiday season they had this recipe printed on little cards
and passed them out to customers.
Nice touch.

I make a similar dish, it does not have the french dressing. I agree that it is very, very good! Thanks for sharing.

Sounds and looks yummy. I just posted an easy soup recipe......it is supposed to be white chili but it's still a bit red. Has only chicken, salsa, navy beans and cheese. I wrote this downand will try it.

That sounds good to me. I will give it a try. Thanks for sharing the recipe at WUW.

Strange but I saw this recipe last spring and thought just what you said...strange combination of ingredients. Okay, you have me convinced. I will try it.

Oh, this looks delicious! Pretty presentation too :)

I know how delicous this recipe is. I make the same chicken using a jar of appriot jam instead of the cranberries.
But next time I make "red chicken" I am using the cranberries... this sounds scrumptious!!!!
And it is so beautiful too!
Thanks for this easy delicious recipe!
