I was surprised by how well the cranberry mixed with the onion soup mix. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs because that is what I had on hand. They turned out very nice, but I think they would have been more flavorful if I'd had bone in. This is a welcome recipe to have after a long work week....dinner is ready when you get home.

I actually made this recipe before Thanksgiving (cut it in half for just the 2 of us) but put off reviewing it until now ~ Busy, busy! Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed this chicken dish I particularly enjoyed the cranberry & onion soup flavor combo! Served it with brown rice, & it's a definite keeper of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
