Kid Friendly Crock Pot Chicken

If you have school aged children, then you can relate with the crazy schedules – especially this time of year!!

Sometimes to have dinner be totally easy and quick is a wonderful help.

I had heard about this recipe from a number of different mom’s, and thought I would give it a try to see if it really was a scrumptious as they said!!

Easy – I’ll give it that!!

Healthy – I’ll say fair to good.

Kid Friendly – I had a split, ‘one love, one fair’

Would I make it again?…. for sure!!


4 bone in chicken breasts (I used boneless)

1 can cranberry sauce

1 bottle Catalina dressing (I used a half a bottle)

1 package onion soup mix

Mix 3 ingredients in bowl. Pour over chicken. Slow cook 6 -8 hours.

Serve over brown rice.

Steam some vegetables to go with, and dinner is complete!!
