Rinse chicken with cold water; pat dry. Place chicken in a single layer in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle soup mix evenly over chicken. Stir cranberry sauce, and spoon over chicken; top evenly with dressing. Cover with aluminum foil.
Bake at 400° for 40 minutes; remove foil, reduce temperature to 350°, and bake for 20 more minutes.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Kraft Catalina dressing.
My boys love this chicken. I've tried it with French and Catalina Dressing; we like the French. I serve it over rice, may try spaghetti sometime. I'm lazy, I just mix all together, pour over chicken and bake uncovered. We love it.
A neighbor shared a serving of this with me as it was one of their family's favorite recipes. It is now one of our family's favorites, as well as many of my friends. It's wonderful and a great change from boring chicken dishes. So tasty and different--worth trying!!
