There are many versions of Cranberry Chicken and each one is very tasty. This dish can be made with either chicken or turkey. Cranberries added with the meat just seem to go together and they make a winning combination. I made this version for my family and it was a hit. This a quick and easy recipe that smells so good as it cooks in the crock pot.

How to Make Crock Pot Cranberry Chicken (Turkey)

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray inside crockpot with a non-stick cooking spray
  2. (Optional)Lightly brown chicken pieces of your choice before placing in crock pot. I seasoned my chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder before placing in crockpot.
  3. Combine all ingredients except water and cornstarch in crock pot/slow cooker. Mix the chicken/turkey in the crockpot with the sauce ingredients.
  4. Cook and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours, or on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. (If you browned the chicken beforehand,cut back on the cooking time since you don't want to overcook the meat.
  5. Ten minutes before serving, stir together cold water and constarch; add to chicken mixture.
  6. Cover and cook until thickened for about 10 minutes.
  7. Note: Turkey breast tenders can be used as well. If you enjoy more sauce, you may double the ingredients to pour over the meat, rice or noodles. The recipe called for 2 lbs turkey tenders. I used 8 chicken thighs for the same amount of ingredients. It seemed to be enough sauce, but I doubled the ingredients to be sure.
