Here is another super yummy easy to make recipe to help you get through this week with your sanity!  This week’s recipe is Orange Cranberry Chicken by Jenny at The Healthified Mom and Freebie Spot.  Prep time should be about 10 minutes and will cook for four hours and yield about 6 servings. If you have a big crock pot (about 6 qt) you can double the batch and when finished put half in gallon size bag for the freezer!  Thanks to The Centsible Family for putting this together!

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, frozen
  • 3/4 c Russian salad dressing
  • 1 pkg dry onion soup mix
  • 1 2oz pkg fully cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/4 c no-pulp orange juice
  • 1 can (16oz) whole berry cranberry sauce

Instructions

  1. Lightly spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Place frozen chicken breasts in slow cooker.
  2. Mix together the dressing, soup mix, bacon, orange juice, and cranberry sauce.
  3. Pour mixture evenly over the chicken, cover, and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours.

I recommend spreading the chicken out as evenly as possible in order to get the most coverage from your sauce. And never, ever lift the lid off your slow cooker. If you do it just once, you may need to add 30 minutes or more to your cooking time.
