Saucy Cranberry Chicken

Here's a simple chicken dish that is sure to please!  It's a variation of an apricot chicken recipe that my mother-in-law used to make and was known as 'grandma's chicken' by her grandchildren.

  • 3 lbs. skinless chicken pieces (breasts and/or thighs)
  • 1 cup Russian dressing
  • 1 1/2 cups cranberry sauce (or 1 can 398 ml cranberry sauce)
  • 1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
  1. Place chicken pieces in a 9" x 13" baking dish.
  2. Combine dressing, cranberry sauce and onion soup mix in a small bowl.
  3. Spoon evenly over chicken pieces.
  4. Bake at 350°F for about 1 hour and 15 minutes...or until chicken is done (165 degrees F).
