  1. I was doing a product test of catalina dressing, so my results might not be typical. I didn't think the marinating really penetrated the chicken, so it might be possible to skip that step if you are really pressed for time (although it did take me nearly the whole 30 min. to cook my bacon). I used 1/2 c. of green onions because my onions were huge and that was one onion. I thought that the dressing was strange with an aftertaste and had an odd pink color after broiling and baking - these are possibly specific to my dressing and might not be a problem with a dressing that is already in stores. The cheese and bacon were good. I forgot to cover with foil and the dish did not seem to suffer too much. I would not make this again, but if you love catalina dressing and use it routinely, you would probably like this, because the flavors seemed to go well together.
  2. This recipe is good. I followed the recipe exactly. It is very colorful. I have seen recipes with catalina in them and always wanted to try them. Thank you for a good recipe. Made for PAC Fall 07


I used to love cooking when I was younger ( about 14 or 15). I stopped After I moved out of my parents house and just got fast food or what ever was in my budget. I recently got married and started a family of my own. While I was pregnant I decided that I would become a stay at home wife and mother, my passion for cooking came right back to me! My hudsband found this sight and I love it. There sooo many things I want to try!
