Cranberry Chicken

This savory recipe is so yummy. It can be done in a crockpot but I like it better in the oven. I use dried ingredients that I have on hand but during the holidays you can use fresh onion and cranberries and even use a clove of garlic you will just need to simmer the ingredients longer before baking the chicken. If you don't want to make your french dressing, use an organic french dressing from the store so you don't add corn syrup and msg to this healthy dish.

1 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup dried onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 quart homemade beef broth
1 whole chicken, cut up

The How Tos
Put the first five ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer uncovered until reduced by half. Set aside.
Place the cut up chicken in a baking pan, arranging the larger pieces to the outside. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Bake at 350 degrees about 45 minutes or until meat is cooked thoroughly (approximately 14 to 15 minutes per pound total cooking time) and sauce is thick and bubbling.
