  • Trim the fat from the boneless chicken breasts (if using chicken breasts) and place into a ziplock freezer bag or prepare a FoodSaver vacuum bag.

  • Add the dry minced onion, salt, and pepper to the freezer bag.
  • Pour the cranberry sauce and barbeque sauce into the bag.
  • Carefully squash the bag to cover the chicken with the sauce.
