Cranberry Orange Chicken Crockpot Recipe

This is a fast and easy crockpot recipe. It takes about 15 minutes to put together and it cooks on it's own until dinner!

Since we have stopped using coupons, I have started to shop as local as I can to save more money.  Foster Farms Simply Raised sponsored this recipe to give me the opportunity to use their locally grown, antibiotic-free chicken as my local shopping includes our meat. Fresno is known for its location for produce, but the meats are not always local. It depends on what store you shop at and the brand you buy if you are getting local or not.

I was excited to find that Foster Farms is always local and has been for 76 years! Everything you see in the stores is from the closest location possible to that store within a 48-hour drive. I was also excited to see that store are now offering Foster Farms certified organic chicken as an option in California! All Foster Farms fresh chicken is American Humane Certified.

If you are a coupon user, there is a $1 off coupon for the fresh and natural chicken here!

We used Foster Farms chicken to make a recipe I have been trying to refine. This time, it turned out perfectly! I was so excited as it is so easy to make! Best of all, it is an excellent meal that almost my whole family loves and when does that ever happen???
