Cranberry-Sauced Chicken


This robust sauce takes chicken
or
 leftover turkey
from ordinary to extraordinary 
and will 
revive your faith in fowl!




Cranberry sauce combined with Robusto Italian Dressing, balsamic vinegar, sherry and onion soup mix blends into a tangy sauce to top the chicken breasts.




What you end up with is tender, flavorful tasty chicken, with a tangy sauce that is the right combination of sweet and tangy.  It’s proof that cranberry sauce shouldn’t just make an appearance on the holiday table.

Here’s hoping you give this a try, it’s delicious and easy too!

Ingredients:

4-6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

Serve



ENJOY!

  1. Dear Pam,
    Who knew? This is a wonderful recipe and that chicken looks fabulous...That is a very flavorful combination of ingredients...It must be sweet from the cranberry and a little sour due to the dressing and the vinegar...I like the onion soup mix also mixed in...Always looking for something new to do with chicken..now I have a new recipe to try..Thank you for sharing...Have a great day Pam..

    1. Hi Dottie! I agree, it's a good combo of ingredients and easy to make. Cranberries make for a great sauce with chicken or turkey. Take care and have a great day!

  2. Pam, I'm not big on sweet with my meat but the tangy ingredients add up to a combo that I might really enjoy. Hope you had a great thanksgiving! My favorite part (other than family) was the leftover turkey! (Turkey and gravy over leftover mashed potatoes and a couple of turkey sandwiches on soft white bread with mayonnaise and Tabasco...Yum!) Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Hi Dave! This is a tangy and good. Leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner are great, and bill definitely likes those turkey legs and wings. I like your turkey sandwich, never thought of the Tabasco with mayonnaise. Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving also. Take care

  5. Nice idea to mix cranberry sauce with a salad dressing, and smothering the bird before cooking. Really add flavors!
