Crockpot Cranberry Orange Chicken is an easy dinner recipe. The taste of the moist chicken is out of this world! The cranberry and orange juice combines to make such a delightful sauce. The best thing about this crockpot meal is there is only 3 ingredients! This is also a naturally gluten free meal! Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce is gluten free or feel free to use another brand. This recipe also great to make with leftover cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving.
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker.
We have a free shopping list for you for this recipe! It includes a list for a single, double, triple or x10. We hope it makes your shopping easy! I like to serve this with Easy Cheesy Twiced Baked Potatoes and Roasted Broccoli.
Crockpot Cranberry Orange Chicken one of our recipes in our 20 Freezer Meals that you can cook in 4 hours.
I made this 3 ingredient crockpot recipe as a freezer meal. I took a Sunday afternoon and spent 2 hours making 8 meals and this was one of them. This freezer meal took less than 5 minutes to assemble and put in the freezer. When I wanted to prepare the freezer meal I simply pulled it out of the freezer the night before and let it thaw in the fridge. In the morning I dumped it into the crockpot and cooked it on low all day. When I came home dinner was done. If you want to learn more about freezer cooking click here ==>Freezer Meals.
