Sweet & Sour Chicken (Another One)

When I spotted this recipe at Deborah's Taste and Tell last week, I knew I would give it a try that same day. I was about to go to the store so I picked up the ingredients for it. I had never tried Catalina dressing and wasn't even sure what it tasted like, but it looked so easy and Deborah has such good recipes that I was willing to try. So glad I did! It was one of the fast chicken recipes you can imagine. Just mix up the few ingredients for the sauce and pour it over the chicken and bake. And you get a moist chicken with a flavorful sauce. Who can't do that?

I accidently picked up bone-in chicken when I was shopping, but I'll go back to boneless, skinless like I normally buy next time. I cooked it a little longer, but it was still great. Even Sabrina (who likes her chicken bland with no sauce) devoured this one. She even had leftovers of it the next day. We all agreed that we should have this again. My only problem is that I have another recipe called Sweet and Sour Chicken (which I posted on my second recipe post on my blog and I just realized I never posted a picture of this delicious chicken dish). So any ideas for a different name for this new recipe so I don't mix it up with my old favorite? Sweet & Sour Chicken
4 chicken breast halves
1 c. Catalina salad dressing
1 c. brown sugar
1 envelope dry onion soup mix

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Place chicken in a casserole dish.

In a small bowl, combine the dressing, brown sugar and onion soup mix. Pour over chicken breasts. Cook in preheated oven for about 45 minutes, or until no longer pink in the middle.


  1. You know, my mom use to make this chicken all the time and special for me on birthdays because its one of my all time favorite chicken recipes!

  2. I would call it " Catalina Chicken. "
    I found this recipe in my ward cookbook.. but havent tried it. Now that I heard someone say it's yummy.. I will make it! Maybe tomm!

  3. Oh, I will have to try this! I love easy and delish!!!

  4. Actually, it just occurred to me that there is an ingredient that is different than my moms recipe. I believe she used a jar of orange marmalade. I'll have to ask her now and find out.

  5. I can feel that delicious sauce dripping from my mouth YUM!

  6. That's funny, because I was going to try to come up with a different name for it because I have another sweet and sour chicken recipe on my blog! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And it came from a ward cookbook, and judging from your comments, it's a popular one for ward cookbooks!
