A delicious and flavorful cranberry chicken recipe using cranberry sauce, orange marmalade, orange zest, dried cranberries, and onion soup mix. Best of all, it’s super easy to make!
This Orange Cranberry Chicken recipe turned out scrumptious. I have to say, it wasn’t the prettiest dish to photograph. It’s one of those really tasty, but kinda ugly dishes. I gave it my best shot because we all thought it was worthy of the blog.
I love the blend of cranberry and orange flavors. The tangy flavor of the onion soup mix goes great with the sweet and tart flavors of the marmalade and cranberry sauce. I recommend serving the chicken over a bed of brown rice. The rice soaks up all the sauce and tastes amazing.

1 9oz jar cranberry sauce (such as R.W. Knudsen)
