One of my recent go-to meals is a Catalina Chicken and Broccoli recipe that we can’t get enough of. It’s something I came up with on a whim because I was out of Italian Salad Dressing to make my Italian Chicken and Vegetables in Foil.
Without any time to spare and hop on to Target, I prepared it with what I had, and that was my homemade version of Catalina Dressing.
