This recipe has a back-story. When I was pregnant with Riley, I found iVillage.com, a message board site for women. I joined the September '06 Expecting Club. We, eventually found our name: The September '06 Gingersnaps. Aww, that was a life-time ago. When the kiddos were about 6 months old, we all decided to have a recipe swap. This recipe was submitted by one of the mommies. I made it almost immediately and all fell in love with it. Those babies, are now turning 8! Sadly, our little board was gobbled up by Facebook. I lost touch with all the ladies from that board, but I am still Facebook friends with some ladies from a Photoshop board from there. Now, iVillage, once the go-to site for women, is basically a ghost-town and that is so sad to me.
So, here it is:
Crock-pot Cranberry Chicken
1# chicken thighs
1 can cranberry sauce
1 bottle of barbecue sauce
1 onion, ringed
1 rib celery, diced
salt and pepper
Salt and pepper the chicken. Place chicken in the crock-pot. Cover the chicken with the onion and celery. Dump the cranberry sauce and onions. Place the lid on the pot, cook of low for 6-8 hours.
This chicken comes out of the crock-pot and almost falls off the bone. We usually have this with mashed potatoes, green beans and some pull-apart bread (also from that recipe exchange).
I hope you and your family tries it and likes it as much as we do.
