Clenna Cooks

italianborderClenna is one of the regular readers here on the blog and she often surprises me with a book suggestion or a recipe!

In fact, even her Dear Hubby cut-out a recipe from the paper a while back and Clenna kindly sent it along. (It’s in the recipe box on the right, under the heading: “What’s for Dinner”.)

Here’s her very latest. She says she can’t take credit; she found it on the internet, but this Gal has a knack for scouting out recipes that are good plus easy-peasy!

And when you think about it… isn’t that the best kind of recipe? 😀

Cranberry Chicken

4 skinless/boneless chicken breasts
1 8 oz. bottle of Catalina Dressing
1 package dry onion soup mix
1- 1 lb can whole berry cranberry sauce

Mix together dressing, onion soup mix and cranberry sauce. Place chicken with cranberry sauce mixture in greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees hour 1 to 1 ½ hours uncovered. Or place in the Crock Pot on low for 8 hours.


Thanks Clenna!

  1. Thanks from me too Clenna, and Crystal. Lately I have been fixing boneless chicken breasts on Sunday afternoon. Mostly because its simple, cheap, and I can put lots in the oven because I never know who is going to be around for dinner. Sometimes the wrestling team is hanging out.

    I always like to find a recipe that quick and easy. Leaves me time to bead!!

  2. I always have cans of cranberry sauce on hand! This sounds so good. I know in my heart I will eat too much of it, but too bad!!!

    You have some mighty pretty Czech buttons in your shop! And the beads…wow…

  3. If anyone’s a real purist and doesn’t like to use bottled dressings (ok I’m obsessive! I can’t help it!) here’s a Russian dressing which I just made the other day (altered a recipe I found online) that would work in place of the Catalina in this recipe.

    – 1c mayonnaise
    – the package of onion soup from the recipe (throw in some dried onions if you like it extra oniony!)
    – 1t horseradish (the kind in the jar, heh)
    – 1t Worcestershire sauce (I love the stuff so I doubled it when I made it, you can add more to taste)
    – 1/2t dried parsley (optional, I found I didn’t even taste it)
    – 2T chili sauce
    – 2T ketchup

    Mix it all together, I’d recommend letting it sit overnight for the dried ingredients to pick up the flavours and rehydrate.

    You can fiddle with the chili sauce to ketchup ratio as you wish. If you’d like it even sweeter, I’d recommend adding molasses until it gets to your desired sweetness.

  4. Hi all
    I found another one!

    Crockpot Cherry Pie

    •1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
    •2/3 cup brown sugar
    •1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
    •1/2 cup flour
    •1 teaspoon vanilla
    •1/3 cup butter, softened

    Lightly butter a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker/Crock Pot. Place cherry pie filling in the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Combine dry ingredients with vanilla and mix well; cut in butter with a pastry cutter or fork. Sprinkle crumbs over the cherry pie filling. Cook for 5 hours on low.

  5. yummy sounding recipe. i’ll have to try it out. i like spamgirl’s variation with adding dried onions. and thanks clenna too for the crockpot cherry pie. i’ve got sunday dinner planned now ;-D

  6. The cherry pie sounds great, bet it would work with other fillings as well. My family is not wild about cherry, I may try it with apple or blueberry.

  7. Oh my! I thought I was just getting one recipe, and now there are two more! Thank you Crystal, Clenna, and Spamgirl! Yummy to all those recipes! Hugs, Paulette 😉 … I’m going to check out your recipe section Miss Crystal!
