Crock pot meals typically are not the most photogenic. I debated on whether to post my photos of last night's dinner because they do not do the meal justice. But, this super easy recipe for Crock Pot Cranberry Chicken was delicious.
Only a few ingredients were needed to prepare the chicken entree.

The Family loved the not too sweet cranberry sauce as well as the moist, fall off the bone meat. I loved the ease of dinner prep. I spent all of 15 minutes to get dinner on the table. Sauteed zucchini and steamed rice to sop up all the sauce rounded out the meal.
With the Holidays right around the corner, add this recipe to your repertoire for a no fuss dinner option.

Our chicken waiting in the crock pot.
It made it to the cutting board.
And then to the platter.
