Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray an 8x11 baking dish with cooking spray. Place the chicken breasts in a single layer into the baking dish. Mix the Catalina dressing and orange zest in a bowl, and pour all over the chicken, coating the meat completely. Sprinkle the packet of onion soup mix evenly over the chicken.
  2. Open the can of cranberry sauce, and stir it with a fork to break it apart into a slightly chunky consistency. Spoon the cranberry sauce over the chicken breasts, and sprinkle with sun-dried tomato pieces, garlic, and black pepper. Cover the dish with foil; cut a small vent in top of foil for steam.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; remove foil, and bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes, basting occasionally with pan juices and dressing. When done, chicken meat will no longer be pink inside and the juices will run clear. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast should read at least 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).

The cranberry flavor was overpowering. It wasn't bad, but it was very strong. Usually I would try to tweak a recipe for next time if it isn't to my taste, but not this time. It looked so good on paper!

This is a delicious recipe....but I am very surprised at the nutritional info? What adds all the calories? Is it the oil in the sundried tomatoes. Realistically, how much of the sauce will be eaten with the chicken?

This dish had a nice flavor and was quick and easy to make, but it was a little too sweet for me. I even used only half the amount of cranberries that the recipe calls for, and it was still a bit too sweet. I did enjoy the orange zest and garlic flavors together.

this was.. interesting. i used generic catalina that i needed to use up since its too greasy to use on salads. i just added what i thought was the right amount of sun dried tomatoes.. a whole half cup is almost all my stash. i think this recipe could use some tweaks but i dont think ill have the dressing just sitting in the fridge again..
