Crazy Chicken – Easy One-Pot Meal

Crazy Chicken – Easy One-Pot Meal
Tags: , , ,

The title of this recipe has nothing to do with the mental stability of the cook – at least I don’t think it does. But don’t ask my hubby his opinion as he thinks I run around without my lid on tight ANY day.

I’ve been spring cleaning just in case spring shows up early. After the cold and snow of this winter, I’m hopeful. 😉 And at the end of the day I’m tired! This blast from the past recipe is a one-pot meal you can put together in minutes! 

Four ingredients: dry onion soup, french salad dressing, whole cranberry sauce and chicken of course!

I used chicken thighs for this recipe. I cut the meat away from the bones, took off the skin, then added the skin and bones into a pot of water with carrots, onion and celery to make chicken broth that I later used to cook the rice. I often substitute broth for water when cooking rice as it adds a nice flavor to the rice. 

All ingredients cooking together. 

Serve over rice or riced potatoes.

  1. I don't always use the entire bottle of French dressing - I gauge how much is needed once all ingredients are added to the pot.
