Pretty delicious. I don't use the onion mix because it adds an odd flavor in my opinion. I use fat free Catalina to counter act the brown sugar. I also add about half a cup of black berry jam. My toddler loves it! Thanks for the recipe reminder!

Another friend told me about this recipe and was delighted to find this one already posted! I make this quite often and almost always omit the brown sugar as we don't feel it's needed. The Catalina dressing is quite sweet enough! I love to serve this over plain white or Jasmine rice with steamed broccoli and water chestnuts. Highly recommend this to anybody wanting a quick, easy, kid friendly dish on a weeknight. Guests have been pleasantly surprised by this dish more than once! Thanks for sharing!

Simple easy good dish. Made a huge amount of sauce, which is good for serving over rice.
