I have made this with pork chops instead of chicken and it comes out great. You could also use a pork loin roast. When I first saw the recipe, the ingredients just didn't sound like they would go together, but I was intrigued. The concoction comes out tasting like a very mild barbecue sauce. Don't be afraid to try it! It is so nice to find a recipe that uses so few ingredients and ones that I usually have on hand.
Very tender and sweet. It tastes a lot like barbeque chicken. I liked it, but I don't know when I'll be making it again.
I have to tell you, I didn't change a thing with this recipe and I think this recipe is the best I have gotten on any website. I LOVED IT!!!!! Not only was it totally yummy but the smell of it cooking made me drool all day. I would have never thought of putting these ingredients together but boy, it sure works. Thank you, momof2boys.
I made this last night for Christmas Eve. I used a whole chicken, 1 can cranberry & about 2 cups fresh cranberries, 1 package onion soup & a little water. I left out the Catalina. It was DELISH and a huge hit! Using the fresh berries eliminated the problem other reviews had with berries (sauce) being too mushy & not staying whole. It's a festive, easy and yummy dish.
Simple and good. I love when a recipe uses practical items, and especially love it when all I have to do is throw it in the crockpot awhile. I did turn up the crock pot to high for the first couple hours, then backed it down to low. Chicken was cooked PERFECTLY. Next time, we're going to add a can of chunked pineapple, per my husband's recommendation.
Hubby put this in the crock pot today, and it was wonderful. Love the combination of flavors. Over rice with salad...simple and delicious.
sweet and yummy, next time I will cut the mixture in half....it was too much for 4 breasts.
Made this for a Sunday dinner and everyone loved it. Sauce wasn't overly sweet, it was unbelievably easy, and I made it as written. Didn't have any fresh chicken, so I used pre-cooked, frozen chicken breast patties. Slow cooked on high for 3 1/2 hours - beautiful! Will now be in our Sunday dinner rotation!
