This is a crockpot recipe. I love the convenience of crockpot cooking, especially with the new digital crockpots that automatically go to a warming cycle when the food has completed cooking. They are great timesaving devices since most recipes involve little preparation and leave you with only one pot to clean.

Makes 6-8 servings.

Ingredients:

3-4 pounds boneless chicken breast, skinned
1 can cranberry sauce (16 ounces)
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (whatever brand you like)

Directions:

Place all ingredients in the crockpot. Cover and bake on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours. That’s it!

Serving ideas:

(1) Serve with a rice or potato side dish.
(2) Serve on buns with chips

Note: You won’t even recognize the flavor of the cranberry sauce in this dish. So, if you have family members that normally wouldn’t eat cranberry sauce, don’t let that stop you from trying this great recipe. The first time I made this, my husband commented several times on how much he liked it. I saved the news that it contained cranberries until he was finished. He still won’t touch cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving, but he loves this recipe.
