READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

When a friend of mine first served this to me I couldn't believe how something so delicious could be so easy to make. Now I never let my family use the French dressing, I'm always hoarding it for when I make this chicken.

I made this in the crockpot. At 4 hours on high it was done. Then I removed the lid and let the liquid reduce down until I served it later over rice. I used 12 ozs of the dressing. Next time I'll use the whole cranberry sauce for added texture. Thank you it was very good.
