Cranberry Chicken

Last month I prepped a lot of recipes for the freezer, since baby was on her way. I knew I wouldn't be able to cook as much this month.

This one came from the book Don't Panic - Dinner's in the Freezer. So far the recipes we've tried from this book have been awesome! You can make a single serving of the recipe, multiply it for 3 meals, 6 meals or 9 meals.

Cranberry Chicken

Cranberry Chicken

8 oz Catalina dressing
1 pkg dry onion soup mix
1 can of cranberry sauce
4 boned chicken breasts (I used boneless, skinless)

Mix together everything, except the chicken.... pour in freezer bags, and then add uncooked chicken breasts to the bags. Lay the bags in a flat container once you have them sealed (removing what air you can). This makes them take up less room in the freezer.

When you go to make them, thaw completely. Place chicken with cranberry sauce in greased baking dish, and bake uncovered for 1-1.5 hours on 350F.

My husband was very skeptical of Cranberry Chicken... but we both loved it. It's delicious, and quick with little effort. Would be delicious with stuffing, but it's not overwhelmingly cranberry either. It's just a delicious sauce on a yummy moist chicken breast. Definitely a winner, and will be doing these for the freezer in the future (although I still have another 2 meals of it in there now).
