Mom Does Dinner ... the super easy way!

So it's far from a traditional holiday dinner, but I just tossed BBQ-Cranberry chicken into the CrockPot for tonight, and it's so simple I figured what better time to share?

See, when your kid is trying to decorate your entire house, even though most of your decorations are already done, you don't have time to prepare and cook a true holiday dinner. And sometimes you think, well, it's just for the three of us, anyway, so why go all out, right? So, here ya go.

Lazy Mom's BBQ-Cranberry Chicken Recipe:

1 package of chicken thighs (boneless)

1 can of whole cranberry sauce

1/2 bottle BBQ sauce (you can use a whole bottle, but I used half today!)

That's it. Toss all of that into your slow cooker and keep it on low for 6-8 hours. If you're crunched for time you can turn it to high for a little bit.

You can throw some veggies in there, but I prefer them on the side. Frozen, canned or fresh, it's a perfect accompaniment. On top of that I've got some crescent roll dough I can get into the oven about ten minutes before serving time and we've got ourselves a meal.

With some Star of David cookies for dessert, of course! Enjoy!


  1. I've made something similar before - it is good (and a great way to use up the cranberries!)

  2. I love crockpot recipes. Thanks for sharing!

  3. That does sound yummy... used all my chicken last week.. need to wait for it to go on sale again! :)

  4. Sounds yummy. My crock pot it definitely underutilized.
