Cranberry Chicken

Here's another simple throw-together chicken dish. The combination of ingredients seems slightly odd at first, but they're so delicious when you put them together.

boneless chicken breasts
1 16 oz can jellied cranberry sauce
1 8oz bottle Catalina French dressing
1 packet onion soup mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Trim chicken of any fat. Slice chicken in half horizontally so that you have twice as many pieces that are half as thick. Arrange chicken pieces in a 9x13x2 baking pan. In a separate bowl, combine cranberry sauce, French dressing and onion soup mix. Whisk together until it's mixed well. Pour over chicken. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until done. Serve over rice.

There are several variations of this recipe. You can omit the onion soup mix altogether and just use the dressing and the cranberry sauce. You can use regular French dressing or country French dressing. You can also use Red Russian dressing, either with the onion soup mix or without. Any combination will work and it's all delicious!
