So Recipe.com gets my vote this week on quick, easy kid-friendly meals. Tonight we had this recipe and again this new recipe got a thumbs-up from the kids. You have to understand that I do not put recipes on this blog that my kids don't approve of or that are too hard to do for a working mom.
2 1/2 to 3 pounds chicken thighs and/or drimsticks, skinned (I used boneless/skinless)
1 16 oz can whole cranberry sauce (I made fresh cranberry sauce)
2 T dry onion soup mix
2 T quick-cooking tapioca
3 cups hot cooked rice
Place chicken pieces in a slow cooker. in a small bowl, stir together cranberry sauce, dry soup mix, and tapioca. Pour over chicken.
Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2-3 hours. Serve chicken and sauce over hot cooked rice. Makes 6 servings.
If you want to make fresh cranberry sauce (super easy and yummy):
12 oz bag of cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Rinse cranberries and pick out bad cranberries. Bring water and sugar to a boil, stirring occasionally. Add cranberries and return to a boil. Boil for 3-5 minutes, stirring the whole time.
