What would you suggest I serve on the side? I don't think a potato would be quite good enough, but I don't think rice is just right either. Maybe a toasted pine nut couscous? I never would have thought of mixing French dressing and cranberry sauce (or juice if you don't like the chunky bits of berries), but she makes it look so darn good. This will be one to try for the family. Thank you for the recipe!

This looks delicious - and so easy. I usually don't buy French dressing but I will to make this. And cranberry sauce - yum. My local supermarket always has chicken on sale so this recipe will be great. Thank you.

Picture is pretty! Followed recipe exactly. Finished product is not as attractive as picture. Taste was OK.

This recipe looks amazing! I love how simple the recipe is, yet it's elegant enough for company or just for a weeknight family meal! I bet some orange zest would be yummy with the cranberry sauce too! I would serve this with a side of rice and a salad to make a delicious weeknight meal! Yum - can't wait to try it!

This sounds delicious! I love that it has only three ingredients. I'm thinking that it would be a perfect dish to make over the holidays, since it has the cranberries. Served with stuffing it would be delicious. I wonder if you could substitute turkey breast for the chicken, and if that would vary the cooking time any. I will definitely try this recipe soon!

Susan S have you tried this yet? I like your idea of serving with stuffing and using turkey too. I love chicken and will make the chicken one for sure but I may also try the turkey one. I would say the cooking time is a lot longer or you can use left over sliced turkey and cranberry sauce and stuffing and put in the crock pot and put on sandwiches. Man I am making myself hungry.

sometimes I add a package of dry onion soup. I have also done this with boneless pork loin
