Crock Pot Catalina Chicken - My Recipe Treasures (2024)

Jump to Recipe

Crock pot Catalina Chicken is so fast and easy to put together, you won’t believe it. And your family will be so impressed that you just might feel guilty?

I love the recipes that you can put on and forget about them and when it comes time for dinner, you are all ready to go! And I am always happy when my family likes it! That is always a bonus.

I think that this would be a great recipe for newlyweds or a college student as well. And after the day that I had, I was so grateful that I had this Crock Pot Catalina Chicken on to cook for dinner.

What People are Saying about this Crock Pot Catalina Chicken:

“We tried this recipe last night, and it was so much better than I imagined! I will use more chicken next time, because there was a lot of left over sauce. I cooked it on high for a little over four hours, and just as suggested served it over white rice.” – Justin

“Had this tonight. Didn’t change the recipe at all, but did put it over noodles. Both my hubby and I absolutely loved it!” – Joleyne

My day went kinda like this; get up, get some breakfast on and get a few things done. Then I went and picked up my daughter, where she was having the mechanic look at her car. My husband took her back to get the car and on her way home the service man was behind her and bumped into the back of the car. I guess there wasn’t anything but a scratch.

Then my husband was going to get my van inspected and the check engine light came on. So now we need to see what that is all about.

Then I did get to watch my cute little grandson. I cooked for a minute and then I played with my grandson. He is just a little guy, but he is growing way too fast.

Then my husband called and my other grandson had passed out at school. Not just once, but twice. He hit his head and he had a nice goose egg. OUCH! So we watched his little sister while mom took brother to the Dr.

Then I had an appointment. Finally I came up and ate some yummy dinner and here I am.

What Ingredients Do I Need For Crock Pot Catalina Chicken?

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this Chicken (scroll down for the full recipe):

  • 4-6 Chicken breasts
  • 1 (8 ounce) bottle Catalina Dressing
  • 1 cup Apricot Jam
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato paste or sauce
  • 1 packet onion soup mix, dry

How Do I Make Crock Pot Catalina Chicken?

Here’s the simple steps you’ll follow to make this Chicken (scroll down for the full recipe):

  • In a crock pot, place 4-6 chicken breasts, 8 oz. Catalina dressing, 1 c. apricot jam, 8 oz. tomato paste, and 1 packet dry onion soup mix.
  • Cook on low for 3-4 hours, depending on your crock pot.
  • Serve over white or brown rice.

While my grandson was at the Dr., they weren’t sure why he passed out and so they will need to do more tests. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just go to the Dr. and they could hook you up to the computer and the computer would tell you just what is wrong with you and then it could tell you just what you needed to take to make you perfectly healthy.

I don’t think that the Doctors would like that though, because you wouldn’t have to go back as often and then they couldn’t make as much money. Now there is an idea for someone. Start working on that computer, would you, and I am pretty sure that you will be able to retire a lot sooner.

Can Crock Pot Catalina Chicken be Frozen?

  • Yes, this meal freezes really well.

Do I Need to Cook it Before Freezing?

  • Yes, since the meat used in this Catalina Chicken starts out raw, you need to bake the dish to the full temperature before you cool and freeze it.

How Do I Freeze It?

  • Make sure to let the meal cool before freezing. Placing steaming hot food right into the freezer can contaminate the food. Let it sit overnight in the fridge before placing themealin yourfreezer.
  • Place it in a freezer bag or an airtight container designed for freezer use.
  • All frozen foods should be marked with the name of the meal, the date it was prepared, and detailed instructions for reheating before being stowed away. This will ensure the food is eaten within a safe time period, and that other family members will be able to reheat the dish properly if you’re not around to lend a hand.

How Do I Reheat the Meal When we are Ready to Eat It?

  • If you thaw the meal before reheating, thaw it in the refrigerator rather than at room temperature.
  • If you are in a rush, the microwave can be an easy method of thawing and reheating (if the portion size is right). If using a microwave, it’s wise to use a thermometer to measure the temperature of the center of the dish from time-to-time to guarantee it’s reached a safe 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

And even though this has been an eventful day, I must say that I have nothing to complain about. I am so sorry for all the people in Texas. There are so many that have lost so much and even everything. I can’t even imagine all that they are going through and all that they have been through. My heart goes out to them.

I hope that we are all remembering them in our prayers, and that their needs will be met and that they will get the things that they all need soon. It is so crazy to think about how much water they have received in the last few days.

It is a great reminder to count our blessings and then find a way to help others who are less fortunate. I’m sure that some of those people in Texas would be so grateful for a meal like this Crock Pot Catalina Chicken. God bless Texas!

Tips and Tricks For Crock Pot Catalina Chicken:

  • You could also use chicken tenders, but they will cook faster so make sure that you check them after about 2 hours.
  • You could also use peach jam in place of the apricot.
  • I think that you could also eat this over noodles.

    Amy,
    This recipe looks great. I have been trying new recipes that go in the crock pot because we are painting our new house and that way I know that we will have something good for dinner.
    I made your Mississippi Pot Roast yesterday and we loved it. I made some gravy out of the juice and wow. My husband it was a keeper.
    Stop by Over The Moon Linky Party since you are being featured.
    Hugs,
    Bev

            Would you suggest tomato paste or sauce? I have both but it seems whenever i cook with paste the tomato flavor is a bit overwhelming, but the only tomato sauce i have on hand happens to be with garlic and onion..what would you suggest?

            I have used both at different times and either one works well. It sounds like you prefer tomato sauce, but I probably wouldn’t use one with garlic and onion. However, it may be OK, if you don’t mind those flavors. Really, either is fine.

    Thank you for sharing your recipe. I just put this on for dinner tonight. We are working with what I had in my pantry, so I had to improvise a bit. I used cherry jam instead of apricot, and a small can of diced sriracha tomatoes in place of tomato paste. It smells good?! I am thinking of serving it over noodles. Can’t believe I am out of rice…

      I love it when people are able to improvise and use what they have. I suppose that that comes from the fact that I grew up on a farm and the nearest grocery store was 12 miles away. We actually did most of our grocery shopping in a little larger grocery store which was 30 miles away. I hope that your Crock Pot Catalina Chicken turns out as well as ours always does. Thank you for coming by and leaving a comment. Enjoy!

    Your recipe stated to cook on low 3-4 hours. Reviewer Justin cooked on high over 4 hours. Which is it?

      I would say that it depends on the crock pot. My crock pot cooks hot and fast, the best way to know is when the chicken gets to 155 degrees, turn it to warm. I do this because the chicken continues to cook and I try not to over cook it. The final temperature need to read 160 degrees, that way it will stay nice and moist. You bring up a great point. Thank you! If you do not have a thermometer and your crock pot doesn’t cook very hot and fast, cook it on high for 4 hours.As long as it is 160 degrees, then you are good.
