So as I mentioned last week, we are crockpotting fools around here right now. We’re busy, busy, busy with end-of-the-year things. Also? On Monday? This happened at my house.
The day after Mother’s Day. Ho. Nest. Ly.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, though — I think crockpots hold up in summer, because you can make a meal without heating the entire house. So if you live in a bizarre world where it doesn’t snow two weeks before school gets out for summer, you can still crockpot to your heart’s content.
This is one of my favorite slow cooker chicken recipes, because it’s so simple. It’s got four ingredients. It’s got a nice, thick sauce that makes it great over rice. It’s my go-to recipe when I make meals for new moms.
- 6 chicken thighs
- 1 bottle Russian dressing
- 1 can whole berry cranberry sauce (or from scratch)
- 1 packet onion soup mix
- Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
- In a small bowl, combine dressing, cranberry sauce, and onion soup mix.
- Pour mixture over chicken.
- Cook in slow cooker for 3-4 hours on high, or 6 hours on low.
