4-Ingredient Holiday Chicken Recipe

4-Ingredient Holiday Chicken Recipe
If you’re planning to entertain during the upcoming holiday season, but have little or no time to spend in the kitchen, you’ll want to try this incredibly easy chicken dish, Ann’s 4-Ingredient Holiday Chicken, from my Minnesota friend Ann. Your guests will never know that there are only four ingredients, and that you spent less than 10 minutes hands-on time preparing it.
Ann says she serves this chicken with cheesy mashed potatoes; my family likes it best with plain white rice. For a complete quick and easy menu, I usually serve a festive salad such as Holiday Fruit & Lettuce Salad or Italian Chopped Salad, freshly baked dinner rolls, and a pretty green steamed or microwaved vegetable .

  2. Mix the cranberry sauce, French dressing, and onion soup mix.
