There is no prep before or after and the dish is fail-proof. The juicy chicken cooks in the sauce and makes a simple and flavorful dinner the whole family will enjoy. Another easy chicken recipe I love is this Garlic Parmesan Chicken Dinner where you use another salad dressing.

My six year son is actually the reason for this recipe because he loves cranberry sauce. So weird right? So he found a bag of frozen cranberries from Thanksgiving. I didn’t end up using them for Thanksgiving and asked me to cook them up. I happily obliged and made a big batch of cranberry sauce. But since it was February and not November I wasn’t sure what to make with it.

Gluten Free Chicken Dinner

Then I remembered a recipe my mom use to make with French Dressing and Lipton Onion Packet. Unfortunately, Lipton Onion Packets have gluten in them. Since all my recipes are gluten free because my husband has celiac disease (which means you are allergic to gluten) I decided to make my own version. So I just swapped that for teaspoon of dried onions and viola… Gluten Free Cranberry Chicken!

Thanksgiving Leftovers

If you do have extra cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving this dish is a perfect way to use up those leftovers. You can make a big batch of this and serve it over your leftover mashed potatoes! Boom…Two leftovers used to make another delicious meal.

What to Serve with 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken

I served this over mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes was my go to because I feel like cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes just go together. I think it’s a Thanksgiving thing. But you could serve this over rice or even on its own with green beans.

Also, I like to add more Cranberry Sauce on top of it once it’s finished! I really like Cranberry Sauce and I loved the extra punch of cranberry that it adds to the meal.
