Cranberry Chicken Bake
Cranberry Chicken Bake
- 4 chicken breasts - boneless, skinless
- 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
- 1 cup Russian or Catalina salad dressing
- 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

- Pour sauce mixture over chicken breasts.
- Cover with foil.

Great with wild rice and green beans! You can also make this in the slow cooker. Use a slow cooker liner or spray the slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken on the bottom. Pour remaining ingredients on top. Cook 4 to 6 hours on low. You can also use Western salad dressing instead of Catalina or Russian.

I have never found a recipe I liked for boneless chicken breast until now. This is definitely a 5 star recipe. I will be making this often. Thanks!!
This was delicious. A definite keeper recipe. We swapped out the chicken breasts for boneless thieghs b/c I am not a fan of white meat b/c it’s so dry but we want to try it again with the breast meat. We may even try making
the sauce with pork.
Hi Rebecca. Thanks for sharing! Porkchops would be delicious too! -Amy
Hi Heidi. Thanks for sharing! We love this too! Just something a little different to do with chicken! Love that sauce! -Amy
I made this dish for the family last night and the family loved it. They can’t wait till I make it again along with more of your dishes.
Thank you for creating this amazing recipe.
Made this recipe and it was delicious ! Thanks,Amy
Let me know what you think ladies! We love to serve with with wild rice or mashed potatoes to soak up the sauce! -Amy
Amy can fat free french dressing be used in place of the russian to make a healthier sauce?
Hi Christina, I’ve never tried fat free French with this recipe. Sorry. Not sure if it would be as good. Let me know! -Amy
Sure Joan. Just heat the fresh cranberries in a sauce pan with water and sugar. Cook until the cranberries start to pop and cook down. Sometimes I add a little orange zest and cinnamon too! -Amy
This is what we are having for dinner tonight.
I will be trying this recipe soon, it sounded so good and too easy for one of my school nights!
i have some whole cranberries to use. if i make a batch fresh cranberry sauce will that work?
