It was ten years ago almost that this recipe walked through my door. It was in one of those pans that you just throw away. It was brought to my door as a friendly gesture. I had just had a baby and one of my friends Meigan had made me dinner. She warned me that this would be the best chicken I had ever eaten. I looked a the chicken it looked good enough but I wasn’t sure it was love at first site. I was tired and I was hungry but most importantly I was grateful that I had a friend who made me dinner and grabbed my son so I could have something called a shower. I took both with a new found appreciation. I have to say she was right. I asked her how she made this treat and she just laughed and said, “You are not going to believe this it takes five minutes to prepare.” This my friends was as sweet as a sound as my sleeping baby who only like to sleep for one hour and 42 minutes at a time.

Crockpot Cranberry Chicken Recipe

Crockpot Cranberry Chicken Recipe

I have so much to say about my life and how this recipe fell into it. I am a huge fan of cranberry sauce in fact I have to eat it every time I have turkey or chicken. I used to wait until the kids went to bed so I didn’t have to share. I soon realized they knew what was going on and would not go to bed until I shared. I am serious my littlest asked for the purple sauce. Like many of you I have a picky eater. I mean three picky eaters. I would like to state for the record that is rude to give someone three picky kids. I found a way to get them all to eat a meal. The best part is this is a freezer to crockpot mealĀ

This is simple and tasty and prep is done in five minute. This is a recipe kids can makeĀ .

8 oz of French Dressing

1 packet of Lipton Onion Soup Mix

I snuck in some fresh garlic just because!

Label your freezer bag with the recipe nameĀ crockpot cranberry chicken recipe

You will need to combine the Ā Chicken, Cranberry Sauce, French Dressing and Onion Soup Mix in a Gallon Freezer Ziplock Bag. Ā Once you have closed the bag then Ā take your hands and knead all the ingredients to coat the chicken breast.

You will thaw this and then cook it for 4-6 hours. If you chose not to freeze than cook for 4-6 hours in the slow cookers.

Chicken & Dumplings

“Y’aint country if you don’t bleed chicken’Ā andĀ dumplin’s.” That’s what my great great grandmother, Lelia, would tell anyone – come here or born here. Chicken and dumplings is one of those traditional meals you see at many Sunday suppers. I’ve known people to get divorced over chicken and dumplings – that’s how serious this dish is ’round these parts.

Chicken-and-Dumplings

Can you see my roots coming through? LOL

Chicken-and-Dumplings-1

Chicken and dumplings is a country staple, no matter how it’s made. Some folks boil the chicken, others roast it. Some folks like their dumplings thick, others want ’em thin and slippery. I’m going to tell you how I make roast chicken and thin slippery dumplings. The dumplings themselves are a family recipe – I cook the chicken the way I’ve found to produce the most juice/flavor for the dumplings.
