Slow Cooker Cranberry BBQ Chicken
This time of year canned cranberry sauce is on sale at just about every grocery store in preparation for the holidays. But I love cranberry sauce so much that I usually stock up on a few extra cans to use in recipes like this one for cranberry BBQ chicken.
With just 4 ingredients this recipe is one of those “dump and go” recipes where you can cut up an onion and dump the rest of the ingredients (chicken, BBQ sauce and cranberry sauce) in the slow cooker and let it cook for a few hours.
In fact, you can even prepare this recipe as a slow cooker freezer meal and have it ready to go to cook on busy days.
When it is time to serve dinner cook up some white or brown rice and perhaps saute up some nice vegetables as a side dish and you have a easy dinner that everyone in the family will love.
