I love this tasty inventive chicken dish. it was so easy and quick!! It was different but the mixture of the ingrediences were excellent. thank you for the great recipe i will use it for many years to come. instead of the traditional cranberry sauce i used the kind with "whole berries" and it was a whole lot better.

I think there is a misprint in this recipe use French Catalina or Russian dressing NOT RANCH. Also use whole cranberry sauce not the jellied kind. Read More

My husband fell in love with me again over this recipe. I served it over rice after reading the reviews. That was really great the sauce is a bit runny but over the rice it is great. I discovered too late I did not have the liption onion soup mix so I substituted French fried onions for the soup mix. It still turned out really good. The kids loved it too. Read More

This recipe was easy but we did not care for it!cranberry sauce should not ever be used with onion soup mix and ranch dressing.It smelled horrible and it was a strange color.The chicken was tender though if you could get past the weird color... Read More

This was perfect served over brown rice. My family loved it and it couldn't be easier. Many thanks to reviewer Cheri Nobriga for the idea of substituting a 2.8 oz. can of French Fried Onions for the onion soup mix. It was so good I may never even try it with the soup mix. I used whole berry cranberry sauce and the berries added to both the visual and taste appeal. Thanks Alice for sharing this delicious recipe! Read More

Have to say this bombed at my house. Not one person in my family of 6 ate more than a few bites. It had a strange unappetizing color and a very odd taste. Sorry I couldn't think of anything to tweak to make it more appealing. Read More
