This recipe was originally called "Chicken Delight" and came from my mother. I don't know where she got it from. I re-named it "Luau Chicken" for use at a Hawaiian themed party.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -6 lbs chicken drummettes or 3 -6 lbs chicken wings (I prefer the drummetes -- You can also use a whole chicken cut up, with the skin removed)
  • 1 (8 ounce) bottlemilani 1890 French dressing
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce


  1. Depending on how many people you have, you can increase or decrease this recipe very easily.
  2. Put the drummettes or wings or chicken pieces in a baking dish.
  3. Mix the dressing with packaged dry onion soup mix and can (s) of whole berry cranberries.
  4. If you are making this for a few people, just use one bottle of dressing, one can of cranberries, and one envelope of onion soup mix.
  5. Increase portions for more drummetes or wings.
  6. Pour mix of dressing, cranberries and soup over the drummettes or wings, and bake at 350 for an hour and 15 minutes.

Simple and completely delicious. The day I made this for dinner, I went to take a shower, and my husband arrived home while I was showering. I caught him, fork in hand, over the chicken, devouring it. Between the gulps I gathered he was wild about this recipe. He even mentioned it the next morning. Thanks for posting. It's perfect.

I had even less excuse than most - because of cooking for two I had half a can of cranberry sauce and half a pkg of onion soup mix sitting around. It was easy, the chicken was tender, but the sauce was just "off"; I think because of the onion soup. If I tried it again it would be without that.
