Sweet & Saucy Chicken Breasts

I found this recipe in a What's Cooking magazine by Kraft. It is actually called, "Russian Chicken Breasts" but I didn't have any Russian dressing, so ours wasn't! We used Catalina dressing and it was fantastic. This was one of the quickest and yummiest recipes I have made in a long time. I highly recommend this!

The chicken was wonderful. Very easy to make and tastes great! Our 5 year old grandson, who is usually a finicky eater, finished his chicken in record time! This recipe will become a household standard!
