I am Definitely Impressed with this one!! Easy, Fast and Very Delicious and my Kids Loved it too!! Now I know what to do w/ my left over homemade cranberry sauce every year!! This one is great because it makes a healthy serving, so I can freeze 1/2 for that night when I do not feel like cooking. Thank You for such a wonderful easy dish.

You don't have to use 12 chicken breasts for this recipe. I only used about 4 or 5, cooked them in an 8x8 casserole dish completely covered with the cranberry sauce for an all over marinade--perfect. The extra sauce is excellent over top of rice as well. Also, I used "My Grandmothers French Dressing" recipe from this site, so glad I did--mmmm. Lastly, use fresh chicken breasts, it'll turn out better, or at least it did out of the two times I've made this :) Thanks for sharing such an easy and delicious recipe!

We are "cooking ahead" for my husband's 90th birthday party. If I could give this recipe ten stars, I certainly would! My home health aid, who does most of our cooking using recipes I get from here, agrees with me. I made Grandma's French Dressing recipe on this site for the ingredients. Sweet, yet tangy. Rich, but not greasy. She made copies of both recipes to take home.
