Slowcooker Cranberry/Chili Chicken

A few friends requested a recipe requiring minimal preparation time. This is very easy and delicious.


4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves ( I cut up a whole chicken)
1 16oz can whole cranberry sauce ( used jellied)
2/3 cup chili sauce*
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 envelope dry onion soup mix


Place chicken breasts in crock-pot.

Combine remaining ingredients; add to crock-pot, coating chicken well.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.

  1. I can imagine how good this would be, since I use the exact ingredients to make sweet and sour meatballs. It must be great with the chicken also. I think I would add some cabbage and cut up the chicken and serve it over noodles. Yum, I am getting hungry.

  2. I never thought to use cranberry sauce like this. I will be trying this one. Thank you Linda..

  3. Boy, that is fast and easy. And it has all the flavors of Fall - makes me wish for cooler weather. Thanks for sharing on #overthemoon!

  5. This looks SO good, and best of all, it's easy! Absolutely going to try this, so I'm pinning for future use...or maybe for tomorrow.

    1. Hi Linda, just want you to know that I made this for the family tonight. It was a hit! Thank you! I'm so happy to add this easy recipe to my weeknight meal plans!

    2. Thanks Amy for letting me know and so happy you enjoyed it.

  6. I love crock pots. My favourite thing to use in winter. Must try that cranberry chicken dish. I'd probably go easy on the chilli, although it looks like it could be sweet chilli.
