4 slice
6 - 8
boneless, skinless chicken breasts
10 oz
jar of cocktail onions, drained
1 pkg
onion soup mix
16 oz
whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/3 c
1/4 tsp
dried thyme


1Cook the 4 slices of bacon; crumble. Set aside.
2Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet until uniform in size and thickness. This helps with more even cooking, and makes the chicken deliciously tender.
3Brown chicken breasts for a few minutes on each side in the bacon drippings; remove skillet from heat.
4In a medium bowl, combine the bacon crumbles, cocktail onions, onion soup mix, cranberry sauce, water, and thyme. Stir well. Pour over all the chicken in the skillet.
5Return pan to the burner. Lower heat to simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes, until juices run clear. Remove lid; you can continue to cook for several minutes, uncovered, until juices are reduced, and chicken takes on a glazed appearance.
6Serve with rice and a nice green vegetable!
