Cranberry Chicken

Do you still have canned cranberry sauce left over from Thanksgiving like I do.  If so here is a great recipe to use them up.  I decided to post on Wednesdays items I do not want to waste and the creative ways to use them.   Waste-not Wednesday is taking on cranberry sauce...

Cranberry Chicken


4 – 6 chicken breasts,
can of whole cranberry sauce *
1/2 bottle (so use 8 oz) French or light French dressing
1 package onion soup mix (dry)
Mix and pour over chicken, cook in crock pot on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours until chicken falls apart, shred and serve over rice.

 *(I am also going to try the jellied kinds since that is what I have extra cans of.  I will let you know how it turns out.

Spoon about 2/3 cup filling on each tortilla. Roll up tortillas around filling. Place, seam side down, in prepared dish; set aside.
