What could be simpler than making this? I especially like the combination of apricot jam and Catalina dressing.

Made for Aus/NZ - Make My Recipe Edition 7. This is really easy - everyone loved it. The only thing that I did different was to double the sauce recipe as that is my family's preference. Thanks for posting this TasteTester!
