I've had this recipe in my recipe files, pinned to Pinterest, etc. For years. Seriously years. As I was going through my Pinterest file the other day I decided it was now or never time. I have Cranberry sauce about to expire (though I expect, as acidic as it is, it will be good for a while yet) on my pantry shelf. I had a bottle of Catalina type dressing in the fridge. I had chicken. I'd just purchased onion soup mix. It was a "Go" on all points.
I admit I was slack this morning. I waited until 9:30 to start this dish. My chicken breasts were frozen solid. I forgot the cranberry sauce about to expire in the pantry and hunted all through the fridge for cranberry sauce I thought I had leftover. In the end, I grabbed a container of homemade cranberry relish from the freezer to use and I'll explain why. I wanted to make just enough for two.
