Tonight I tried another recipe from my friend Cassie's blog (she's got some GREAT stuff over there). I'll admit, I was pretty skeptical of this recipe. I just kept looking at the few meager ingredients thinking 'No way are these 3 things going to make a decent sauce'...well, I was wrong.
This was actually VERY good, and so simple. Seriously...5 ingredients...and that's counting the chicken and rice! This is definitely a keeper for us. Unfortunately I wasn't able to give any to Jesse since he's got a bit of a stomach bug, so his diet is strictly applesauce, toast, and bananas for the next day or two, but I really think this is something he'll like. This is perfect for those crazy nights when you don't want to THINK about dinner, you just want it done! I highly recommend trying this...thanks Cassie!
'Sweet and Sour Chicken'
Source: Cassie Craves
4 chicken breast halves
1 cup Catalina salad dressing (I used the Zesty Catalina)
1 cup brown sugar
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
Rice, for serving
1. Heat oven to 350. Place chicken in a greased casserole dish.
2. In a small bowl, combine the dressing, brown sugar and onion soup mix. Pour over each chicken breasts.
3. Cook in for about 45 minutes, or until no longer pink in the middle.
4. Meanwhile, cook rice according to package. (I used the 5 minute white rice. I started it with 14 minutes remaining on the chicken, and it was done the same time as the chicken)
