You lazy people are going to love me again today. Just LOVE me I tell you!
A couple of years ago (yes I said years) I ate the most. delicious. chicken. ever. It seriously was as if it came straight from heaven. In fact, I’m almost certain it was anointed.
When I left the house where I ate this divine chicken I begged the hostess for the recipe. Which she promptly gave me. And I promptly lost.
I’ve got skills people, serious skills.
Several times after this sad event (of losing the recipe) I asked the hostess for it again. And several times she rattled it off for me as if I would remember it like she did. Bless her heart.
Or maybe it’s, bless my heart?
I think it’s bless BOTH our hearts.
Anyway, this went on for years (yes I said years). And for years (yes I said years) I went on in life without this anointed chicken dish passing through my lips. It was some very sad years in my life (yes I said years).
To make a long story short (is it too late?) I actually had the presence of mind a few weeks ago to ask this wonderful hostess for the recipe again, but this time I whipped out my cell phone. I just whipped it plumb out. Just like that *snap*. That’s how good I am. And I pulled up my notepad thingy and typed in the recipe as she gave it to me for what was probably the hundredth time. (This should testify to this lady’s patience, that’s for sure. Wait. So maybe it IS just bless my heart and not hers).
This time I was walking away with the recipe IN HAND.
It was a glorious day.
I’m pretty sure I heard angels singing. Or else it was me humming from happiness. I can’t be sure, they sound so much alike.
So. Yesterday I made this dish. And people, it’s wonderful, just wonderful I tell you.
AND (get ready for it) IT’S A LAZY MOM RECIPE.
Could. You. Die?
AND (get ready for it) IT’S A CROCKPOT RECIPE.
Could. You. Double. Die?
Oh I think you could. And you shall (but not for real, mkay?)
So I’m going to give you this wonderful chicken recipe. But first let me tell you two things. (You know, because I haven’t told you enough things about this recipe yet.)
- The ingredients in this recipe sound VERY strange. I would never, I repeat NEVER have put these ingredients on chicken and cooked it. Ever. Never ever, you hear me? But trust me on this one, my lazy people. It’s good in the end. It’s allllll good.
- Do NOT laugh when you realize that I couldn’t remember the three ingredients for this chicken dish. That I was told dozens of times. I have mommy brains, on top of a bad memory, on top of three kids constantly asking me for something all the time, on top of, wait, what was I saying? I can’t remember. Oh never mind.
Lazy Cranberry Chicken
4-5 chicken breasts
1 8oz bottle of french dressing
1 packet of dry onion soup mix
1 16oz can of whole cranberries
Place your breasts (the chicken’s, not yours) in a crock pot. I slap mine in there frozen (the chicken’s, not mine), but if you have some time (and want this dish to be even better) you can brown your breasts (the chicken’s, not yours) on both sides in a pan before putting them in the crock pot. Which is something I’ve NEVER done, but I do recommend it for those of you who aren’t as pathetic as I am. It adds flavor. Or something like that.
Next, pour in the whole bottle of dressing, toss in the soup mix and dump in the cranberries. (Those are all very technical cooking terms in case you were wondering.)
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours or until your breasts are done (the chicken’s, not yours).
Serve over a bed of rice, noodles, or just throw it down on a plate like I did.
No matter how you serve it, just eat it.
And then love me.
Because you will.
At least if you have my taste buds.
If not, I don’t got nothing for ya.
Oh! And an added bonus to this recipe is the fact that you probably have some cranberries sitting in your fridge leftover from Thanksgiving last week, now don’tcha?
So see? This is practically a Thanksgiving leftovers recipe. Because you could totally sub turkey for the chicken! And the hostess that gave me this recipe, says this sauce also ROCKS on pork chops. Awwwww, yeah.
Well, okay, she didn’t say rocks. But I feel certain she meant that.
