*You need a little to cut the sharpness of the cranberries, but can make this less sweet than if you used cranberry sauce. I don't add much sugar. The orange juice adds a little sweetening. Add a little, then taste. If it needs more when it is done, you can add it then.
Saute the onions and chicken in a little olive oil. When the chicken is nicely browned, add the remaining ingredients. Turn chicken so that it is breast side down. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a nice simmer and cover. Stir often. Cook until the chicken is done and the sauce thickened a little. This is very good served over rice.

Trim chicken and pound to 1/2 inch thickness. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick spray; lay chicken in pan. Mix the other three ingredients and pour over the top of the chicken. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 45 minutes (until chicken is cooked). Really tasty and so easy! Enjoy!

Place onion slices and cranberries in the bottom of your crockpot. Arrange chicken on top. In a small bowl mix together the catsup, Sucanat, dry mustard and vinegar. Pour this over the chicken. Cover and cook on low setting 6 to 7 hours or until the chicken is tender.
To serve, lift the chicken out and set on serving platter (you can cover it and keep it warm in your oven on a warm setting) and mix 1 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch with 2 Tbsp. cold water. Turn the crock pot to HIGH and add mixture. Cover and cook this for about 15 minutes more or until the sauce thickens. Season to taste with salt and pour this over the chicken. This tastes good with brown rice pilaf and a spinach salad.
