Catalina Chicken Recipe

Using Catalina salad dressing to make this family favorite helps keep the prep time to only 10 minutes. I like to spoon extra sauce over the baked chicken just before serving. — Frances Roberts, Silver Spring, Maryland
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup Catalina salad dressing
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons onion soup mix

" mouth was watering. I could not wait to make this.....and I am soooooooo disappointed. I did not like it. To me, the onion soup mix ruined it, but I'm not sure I would have even liked it without the onion soup mix either. Anyway, chalking this one up as a dud."

"I did not brown the chicken but put all of the ingredients into a slow cooker. It took only 3 hours on high and the chicken was very tasty. I'm going to make an extra one next time, dump all of the ingredients into a freezer bag and freeze."

"Have made this great recipe for years with apricot jam and sometimes Russian Dressing instead of Catalina. The recipe we use was called Russian chicken. We also use the sauce (doubled or tripled) for regular or vegetarian pecan "meatballs". Nice to see it here!"

"This was really good .As someone else commented I wasn't sure how it would turn out with the unusual ingredients.The only thing I would do differently would be make a little extra Sauce. I will definitely make again"

"I've been making this recipe for years but my recipe called for Apricot Jam. I have made it with other jams but like Apricot the best."

"The ingredients sounded so strange but I decided to be channel my inner chef & try this several years ago. Boy was I surprised! It was a nice combination of flavors! My husband & I loved it! And I even got my extremely picky 13 yr. old son to eat some of it. I've made this a lot since then & it's a family favorite. The ingredients are sure staples in our household & it's so easy & quick. A salad & some veggies steamed in a bag & you have a healthy weeknight dinner!"

"This is one of my husbands favorite meals. I skip browning the chicken - just use thin sliced chicken breasts and pour the sauce over them and bake them about 20-25 minutes. Perfect every time!"

"Yummy! Just takes a bit of time because you have to brown the chicken, then bake it. But worth it!
