Make Ahead Monday: 4 Ingredient Cranberry Chicken

Week Four of my Make-Ahead Mondays series bring a simple four-ingredient entrée: Cranberry Chicken!

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
½ bottle of French dressing
1 can cranberry sauce* (either jellied or whole cranberry are fine. whatever you prefer!)
1 packet of dry onion soup mix
*try a half jar of apricot preserves instead for something sweeter

Stir the dressing, cranberry sauce and onion soup packet. Lay the chicken breasts in an 11x13” pan. Spread the sauce over the chicken breasts. Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.

I’ve tried a couple of variations on the cranberry sauce and also really like using apricot preserves for something sweeter.

That’s it! Serve alongside some veggies and/or rice or potatoes.
