Cranberry Chicken

Marcia Layden


Many years ago, when I was teaching in West Warwick, my lunch crowd thought it would be fun to have a special lunch on Thursday. One teacher would bring in a salad, another an entree, and a third a dessert. This we did for years as the group changed and grew. When retirement approached we could not bear not seeing our Lunch Bunch anymore, and decided to rename our group Supper Club and meet once a month on a selected Sunday afternoon. We have been doing so for 14 years and I now count the Supper Club of teachers and spouses my dearest friends. This is a recipe from the Club.

20 Min


50 Min


14 oz. can(s)
whole berry cranberry sauce
12 oz. bottle
catalina dressing
1 pkg
lipton onion soup mix
large chicken breasts (bone in)

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine the cranberry sauce, soup mix, and the Catalina dressing together
Place a few spoonfuls of mixture on the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish.
Place chicken skin side down in pan and cover with mixture.
Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until done.
I serve this with rice and spoon more of the sauce over the rice. Yummmm! This recipe can be used with PORK CHOPS too! Just cook the pork chops a little longer. Your guests will rave about this dish.
