Easy Cranberry Chicken

This was a great way to use a whole chicken that we cut into pieces and just used all the pieces in the recipe.


1 chicken 3-4lbs

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

2 tbsp butter

1/2 c onion diced

1/2 diced celery

1 can whole berry cranberry sauce

1 cup bottles barbecue sauce


Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper; brown in a skillet in butter. Remove the chicken to greased 13 x 9 pan.  In the drippings, saute onion and celery until tender. Add cranberry sauce and barbecue sauce; mix well. Pour over chicken. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours basting every 15 minutes. THE BASTING IS VERY IMPORTANT TO PREVENT BURNING.
