This looks so scrumptious and sweet, I can't wait to try it. It's from the Jan/Feb issue of Taste of Home's Quick Cooking magazine, and it's supposed to be very kid-friendly!

This was quick, easy, and tasty. It was a nice variation on the Catalina dressing and apricot preserves or Catalina and cranberry sauce chicken recipes I have made in the past. The only changes I made were to add a couple extra cloves of garlic and some black pepper. Served it over rice with some steamed broccoli. (13)
