This is a delicious and easy way to prepare chicken breasts. I like to serve the cooked sauce over mashed potatoes or rice.

I have made this with pork chops instead of chicken and it comes out great. You could also use a pork loin roast. When I first saw the recipe the ingredients just didn't sound like they would go together but I was intrigued. The concoction comes out tasting like a very mild barbecue sauce. Don't be afraid to try it! It is so nice to find a recipe that uses so few ingredients and ones that I usually have on hand. Read More

Very tender and sweet. It tastes a lot like barbeque chicken. I liked it but I don't know when I'll be making it again. Read More

I have to tell you I didn't change a thing with this recipe and I think this recipe is the best I have gotten on any website. I LOVED IT!!!!! Not only was it totally yummy but the smell of it cooking made me drool all day. I would have never thought of putting these ingredients together but boy it sure works. Thank you momof2boys.

I made this last night for Christmas Eve. I used a whole chicken 1 can cranberry & about 2 cups fresh cranberries 1 package onion soup & a little water. I left out the Catalina. It was DELISH and a huge hit! Using the fresh berries eliminated the problem other reviews had with berries (sauce) being too mushy & not staying whole. It's a festive easy and yummy dish. Read More

Simple and good. I love when a recipe uses practical items and especially love it when all I have to do is throw it in the crockpot awhile. I did turn up the crock pot to high for the first couple hours then backed it down to low. Chicken was cooked PERFECTLY. Next time we're going to add a can of chunked pineapple per my husband's recommendation. Read More

Made this for a Sunday dinner and everyone loved it. Sauce wasn't overly sweet it was unbelievably easy and I made it as written. Didn't have any fresh chicken so I used pre-cooked frozen chicken breast patties. Slow cooked on high for 3 1/2 hours - beautiful! Will now be in our Sunday dinner rotation! Read More

This tastes just like the oven version so it was a hit with us! I used chicken tenders and did reduce the catalina dressing to 8oz. b/c that's the way I make the oven version. The smell/taste of this always reminds me of and Asian-y or Chinese-y type of dish so I served 'Asian Coconut Rice' and 'Garlic Broccoli" (except used green beans) both from this site...a great match! Served the chicken and sauce over the rice YUM! Loved that I was able to do this in the slow cooker and get the same results. A great new way for me to make this yummy chicken! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Got this recipe a couple of years ago and have made it with meatballs for potluck at work Everyone wanted the recipe and could not believe how easy it was. Great stuff! As for people lecturing everyone on calorie counts and how the world is so fat why bother coming to a recipe site? Check out recipe sites for low calorie heart diabetes recipes etc. The rest of us just want good recipes to serve our families. Read More
