6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves 1 small onion, chopped 1 cup fresh cranberries (may be frozen-don't thaw) 1 tsp. salt (I left out the salt) 1/4 tsp. ground ginger 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon 1 cup orange juice
Place all ingredients in the crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours, until chicken is tender. After 6 hours you may mix 3 T. flour with 2 T. cold water and add to crockpot and cook for 15 to 20 minutes more to thicken juice. (I did not do the flour and water, I just served the chicken and used a slotted spoon to get the onions and cranberry out to top the chicken)

I was wondering the same thing about "western dressing". I am curious.
The Cranberry Chicken recipe that I used had onions, cranberries, OJ, cinnamon and ginger. It called for fresh cranberries (or frozen) but our store was out of both so I used a can of the whole cranberry sauce. It turned out really good. Hubby loved it!
Sarah, I'm so glad to see you back! And I'm sorry that you, Lee Ann and Iris have been sick; hopefully you are all on the mend now.
Green beans are my favorite veggie also, Sarah. We usually just eat them plain, but I've made a couple of JoAnna's recipes that were delicious.
February's newsletter had several recipes I want to try, but I've got to get past this weekend first. I'm involved in playing the piano for a two-night Valentine Dinner Theater at our church. It's great fun, but there's still a couple of Broadway songs that I'm having to work hard on.

Hi Sarah, I am glad to see you here again. Just yesterday I was asking about you. I am sick with a bad cold and sore throat so I too have not been eating HE things. I sure have been consuming a lot of Orange Juice though.
I hope you will continue to feel well. Your craving meatloaf, so this is a good sign.
Have you been over to the new HE site? Yippee!! No more spammers.
Lee Ann I hope you are feeling okay now. I think I remember someone posting that you were sick.
I'm sorry you haven't been feeling so good but hopefully we are both on the road to feeling better.
I've had the chicken you are talking about and it is good. Also that is good to cook pork with, I've used pork chops and a pork loin roast with the cranberry and dressing sauce. They turned out great! The recipe I used was a can of whole berry cranberry sauce and a bottle of french ot western salad dressing (8 oz bottle). I have seen the same recipe with a packet of dried onion soup added.

Hello Sarah! I know what you mean about being sick. I have been sick for the past few weeks. I also start feeling better and then it hits me again. I think when I start feeling better I over do it and then I get sick again. I need to learn to rest more. I hope you are over the junk and are doing good now.
I have some Cranberry Chicken in the crockpot right now. It is not one of JoAnna's recipes, but it sounded really good so I am making it for supper. I told my husband that for our anniversary I want him to get me my newsletter subscribtion. He was going to do it at Christmas time but things happened and that was not possible.
I've missed ya'll so much! I have been down a virus that I just couldn't seem to get rid of, every time I thought I was better I would get sick again...UGH!
How is everyone doing? I hope you are all doing good and the worst of you winter is over. We are supposed to have a cold spell, hopefully it won't be too bad. I'm ready for summer!
What has everyone been cooking? I haven't cooked a lot lately just eating , or I should say drinking lol, broth and jello and having dry toast. I'm soooo ready for a JoAnna meatloaf!! I have green beans in the crockpot with some smoked turkey leg meat and chopped onion and red potatoes! I LOVE green beans, my total favorite veggie. Also this week I'm making the Porcupine Meatloaf (cooking with Splenda). So that's what's cooking here.
Has anyone made anything from the February newsletter yet? I want to make the Sour Cream Walnut Bread but I'm out of flour I wonder if Bisquick would work????? Also I want to make:
Apple Gingerbread Cobbler Broccoli Rice Skillet Surprise! Casserole Confetti Green Beans (you just know I had to try this!) Oriental Meatloaf Cream Cheese Potatoes Ranch Country Corn Sour Cream Potato Salad
Well that's quite a list, I'm feeling ambitious.
I hope this finds everyone feeling great and still in gear with their New Year's Goals!
Iris and Amie I miss you both and a big hello to newcomers!
