HOW DO YOU MAKE CATALINA CHICKEN?

  1. We will start with cooking the chicken breasts in a large nonstick skillet.
  2. Once chicken is cooked through, we will set it aside, and continue with the broccoli.
  3. Add broccoli to the same skillet with a little bit of water; cover and steam for 3 to 4 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Not mushy!
  4. We will then add our chicken back into the skillet, and stir in the catalina dressing, soy sauce, seasonings, and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  5. To serve, you can either add the chicken and broccoli over a bed of rice, OR serve it as is, with a sprinkle of cashews on top.
  6. For maximum flavor, don’t forget to spoon the extra dressing/sauce over the cooked chicken and broccoli just before serving.
  7. Optionally, for a bit more flavor, you can marinade the chicken together with some catalina dressing for about 15 minutes in the fridge, before cooking.

That’s it!

Literally, 25 minutes to cook, and maybe 5 minutes to cut up the broccoli florets. My laziness makes me reach for the broccoli florets bag at the grocery store…  #EasyDoesIt

    Made this tonight complete with your homemade Catalina. It was awesome!! I was out of thyme so subbed in Italian seasoning and it worked. Hubby said it’s a keeper.
    I am working on losing weight and so is he we LOVE your recipes.

    I did not see where to use the other 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. 7 to 8 minutes per side to cook chicken seems too long. I did less and would do about 4 next time.

    Thank you for including Potassium in your nutritional analysis. So many people with kidney issues these days and I know they need to know this.
    Putting this on the list for next week! I’ll give an update after I’ve tried it. Sure looks good.
