*Jar of chili sauce $1.48 at Walmart

*Pound of frozen peas .79
2-3 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
12 oz. jar chili sauce (found near the steak sauce on the condiment aisle)
12 oz. fresh cranberries
Juice and zest of 1 orange
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste once finished)
Place all of ingredients (minus the rice and chicken) into a food processor and puree until small pieces. If you like more of a smooth sauce, then puree until smooth. If you like some texture then only pulse until the cranberries are broken up. Take out 1 1/2 cups of the sauce and pour over the chicken breasts that have been placed in a crock pot. Simmer the remaining sauce in a sauce pan for 10-12 minutes, or until thick. If you want your sauce to be a little more thin, you can add some chicken broth or water. Set aside the cooked sauce until ready to serve the chicken. Cook the chicken on low heat for 4-6 hours, or high heat for 2-3 (if chicken is thawed). Once the chicken is cooked through and can shred easily, shred the chicken into large pieces. Place the cooked chicken over cooked rice and serve with extra sauce if desired.
