MY REVIEW

"Great recipe - especially for a busy weeknight or weekend. I was super busy the day I made it, so I threw it all into the crockpot and cooked it a little over four hours on the low setting. I added an onion and green bell pepper cut into chunks, about 1/2 cup extra dressing and preserves and the whole packet of onion soup mix. This would be great served over rice with a side of steamed broccoli. I think kids would love it too! As a Taste of Home Field Editor, I recommend trying this!"

"I cut it down and made it for two. I also used the Kraft free Catalina dressing and did it in the slow cooker. It was very good."
