The second recipe I tried has show up on my pinterest feed quite a few times since November, so I thought I’d give it a shot.
You can find the original post here.
It’s usually shared with the photo below:
The blog says you’ll need 4 chicken breasts, 1 can whole berry cranberry, 1 package dry onion soup and an 8 oz Catalina dressing. You cook the chicken on high for 3 hours, mix the other ingredients together and poor over the chicken and cook for 30 more minutes.
What I did:
I only cooked 3 chicken breasts, and only used 6 oz of dressing. This dish is VERY SWEET. We felt like there was way too much dressing. Next time we’ll use less dressing (it doesn’t compliment the cranberry very well and adds a weird taste.) Ill probably toss in home made cranberry sauce, it might help. I cooked my chicken on low for 6 hours then on high for and additional 30 with the other ingredients.
I served this over couscous, that I made with chicken broth and rosemary. My photo is below.
The first recipe I tackled has made it around pinterest without any blog or credit. It’s just the photo below and the directions.
The directions call for 4-6 raw chicken breasts, a green veggie a packet of Italian dressing mix and a stick of melted butter. Cook at 350 for 1hour
I only used 2 chicken breasts, FRESH, not canned, green beans, russet potatoes, the Italian dressing and a stick of melted butter. I cooked at 375 for 1 hour.
DO NOT use a full stick of butter. Even with 6 chicken breasts this is far too much butter. I suggest using 1/2 a stick for 6 chicken breasts and less for 2-4 breasts. Overall, I’d say this recipe was delicious, and easy! I’d suggest it to anyone looking for an easy tasty dinner!
This year my goal is to try every recipe I have/will pin. I started 2 nights ago with a one dish chicken dinner. This week I’ll have made 6 meals off of pinterest. My goal is to stick with mostly/only crockpot dinners. Wish me luck! I plan to post about each of them, so keep a lookout for those!

I’m not sure how many of you miss my posts, but I have a little confession. I have been hiding. Not just from you, but everyone.
It’s a long story and it goes back well, really I guess it goes back to the genes from both sides… but really 26 years. Or close to it at least. I’ve struggled with anxiety my whole life. I have to credit my ability to stay thin. By now you’re probably thinking “what?” Let me explain. My anxiety is over throwing up. My whole childhood I had an incredibly weak stomach. If someone near me burned or blew their nose I’d throw up… I developed a fear of throwing up. Because of this I’d eat very little. Never did I eat all of anything..as I got older it got worse.. I’d skip breakfast & lunch in high school, so I wouldn’t have anything to throw up if something gross happened. It got even worse last year. Anytime I ate I threw up. So, I went to the doctor. She prescribed me citalopram (celexa).
I was only on it for 3 months…boom I was a whole new person…but now I was able to eat all of anything without any fears. Because of that I gained wait. In the past 2 months I’ve gone from thin to overweight. I started to hide from people and was constantly judging myself. If Mitchell told me I looked nice, I’d shoot back something negative about how fat and ugly I am. I still haven’t come to terms, but I don’t need to. I’m doing a 5 day eat clean challenge. I’m on day 3 and have lost 3 pounds!! I plan on keeping up with eating clean & working out. I shall return to post a blog once I get into the hang of things & lose more weight. Would you like to know more about eating clean? Let me know, ill get you in touch with two lovely ladies!
I am so sorry I’ve fallen behind in my posts. I really do have a long list of things to post and not enough time in my week to do it! I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I’ve decided to look for a few guest bloggers.

This recipe is one that my boss has had for ages. I make it for them about once a week in the autumn/winter, and LOVE eating the left overs the next day.
I don’t have any photos for this recipe, since I’ve never made it at home, but I know the recipe by heart and for any/all meat eaters you’ll LOVE THIS!
What You’ll need:
4 frozen costco chicken breasts (or any frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts.)
Powdered Italian Dressing mix
1 Can of Cream of ANYTHING. Seriously Cream of chicken, mushroom, cheddar, celery… any of it works!
1 8 oz package of Cream cheese (the kind that comes in the box works best.)
1/2 cup water
What you’ll need to do:
Put your chicken (FROZEN) breasts into your crock-pot. Mix together your packet of italian dressing & your 1/2 cup water, pour over chicken. Cover & cook on LOW for 5 hours. This is when I bring the cream cheese out of the fridge & set it on the counter, leave it there until the next step.
Next, once you’ve cooked the chicken for 5 hours, mix together your can of cream of whatever, and the cream cheese. Add the mixture to the crock pot & cook on HIGH for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours.
Thats it, once it’s done cooking it’s ready to serve. Serve over rice or egg noodles… or whatever your preference. Serve with a nice green veggie and you’ll have an amazing, easy and delicious dinner!
