Cranberry Pecan Chicken

I love meals that can be assembled quickly and then slowly cook away in the oven. This Cranberry Pecan Chicken recipe is one of those easy dishes. A good friend of mine made it for a dinner party and I was so impressed with the combination of the sweet and savory flavor of the dish. Turns out it can be assembled in about 5 minutes, but still looks quite impressive when complete.

Cranberry Pecan Chicken

3-4 chicken breasts
1 can whole cranberry sauce
1 packet onion soup mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup french or Catalina dressing

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place your chicken breasts in a large baking dish and spoon whole cranberry sauce over the chicken. Next, sprinkle the onion soup and pecans over the chicken and finish by drizzling the dressing over the whole dish.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until chicken breasts are cooked through.

  1. I’ve made a version of this but without the pecans! Sounds so easy and so good… I’m sure the pecans would take it over the top!
