Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken – Only 5 Ingredients!

When I started blogging 3 years ago, my goal was to share easy and inexpensive craft projects.  Along the way I’ve shared my favorite recipes and I want to start sharing more recipes.  I’m not a fancy cook at all.  Ask any of my friends and neighbors and they will tell you that I would probably starve if it wasn’t for them feeding me on a regular basis.  I’m lucky to be surrounded by lots of people who love to cook.  My sweet neighbors Dion and Charles always bring us leftovers or invite us over for dinner.  When I do cook, the meals usually consist of salad with chicken, tacos, or spaghetti.  We also have breakfast for dinner at least once a week.

So, my new goal is to make more meals at home and I’m going to try and keep them simple and healthy.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken

Today’s meal, Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken, is a family favorite.  My mom makes it all the time with beef brisket but I decided to try it with chicken since it is less expensive.  It’s so easy and only requires 5 ingredients.  

Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken


  • 3-4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 can of whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 packet of onion soup mix
  • 1 small bag of baby carrots
  • 6-8 small red potatoes, chopped into wedges


  1. Place chicken breasts in slow cooker
  2. Pour cranberry sauce and onion soup mix over chicken.
  3. Add potatoes and carrots.
  4. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.

So delicious! This is the perfect meal for a busy work night or if you are having people over for dinner. Everyone will love it.

    I’m going to give this a try but due to my husband’s dietary restrictions, I’ll have to use the jellied sauce. I’d think you’d get the same flavor.
