A quick and easy chicken dish recipe. The sauce uses whole berry cranberry sauce and bbq sauce. You can add fresh cranberries if you like. You can use any cuts of chicken but I generally use legs and thighs since they are the cheapest and the most flavourful if they are braised.
I adapated this recipe for my crock pot--which was super easy and pretty good. I used two pounds of skinless/boneless chicken thighs, and cut them up a bit. I put them right in the pot with the other ingredients, and included two cloves of minced garlic. Cooked on low for six hours. I added about 1 cup of frozen peas just a few minutes before serving, and served it with white rice. Very nice with a tossed salad! - 02 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The smell alone while this was in the oven should be an air freshener. 90 mins don't seem like a long time but when it smells that good it seems like eons. This was awesome chicken! We had it two days in a row and wasted nothing! Even my picky 5 year old thought it was the greatest chicken he ever had. The only chicken he liked prior to this was in nugget form. I followed the recipe exactly as stated. As I said, it smelled great, looked pretty and tasted wonderful. Never thought of using cranberries for anything but cranberry sauce. Served it with corn bread muffins and buttered asparagus. This will be the way I bake chicken from now on. I am really thinking about trying the sauce on ribs. YUMMY! - 05 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The whole family loved this one! I used 6 skinless, boneless breast halves and just salt and peppered them and put them in a 9x13. Then sauteed the onion, celery, 1/2 c. chopped green pepper and 2 cloves minced garlic until everything was softened. Added the cranberry sauce, bbq sauce (and a dash of tabasco). Baked uncovered for about an hour, basting twice. It was extremely yummy .. I know I'll be making this one often. - 20 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
