Delicious and healthy 30-minute skillet chicken with broccoli. Smothered in a homemade, sweet and tangy Catalina Dressing, it’s an easy chicken breast recipe that’s perfect for dinner.

WHAT INGREDIENTS DO I NEED TO MAKE CATALINA CHICKEN?

HOW DO YOU MAKE CATALINA CHICKEN BREASTS?

  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
