Cranberry Chicken

I saw a recipe somewhere in a magazine(now I can't remember where)but it combined cranberry sauce, onion soup mix, along with some other ingredients and put it on chicken. I thought that sounded like it might be really good so I tried to come up with a recipe that included those 2 main ingredients. What I came up with was really good. My husband really liked it also. I will definitely be making this again. I also love that it works great as a slow cooker recipe.


1 1b chicken(I used boneless skinless thighs, but bone-in chicken would be great)
1 can whole cranberry sauce
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1 packet dry onion soup mix(like Lipton's)
1/8 cup brown sugar(maybe a little more if you really like it sweet)
1 T apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 T cornstarch

Put chicken in a slow cooker(I put mine in frozen). Mix remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Time will vary depending on slow cooker and type of chicken used. Boneless chicken cooks much faster.
Serve with white rice(optional)

Pin It
