  • 1 cup Catalina Dressing   (You can use Kraft or any Store brand)
  • 1 can of Cranberry Sauce  ( 14 Oz Ocean Spray or Any Store brand )
  • 1 Tablespoon of Dried Minced Onion
  • 1 Tablespoon of Trader Joes 21 Season Salute
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic Salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt or any salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Lemon Pepper  (I like Trader Joe's)
  • 3-5 large Carrots Peeled and sliced on an angle
  • 1 tomato diced up 


Never worry about over seasoning in a slow cooker or an Instant Pot, more is always better in these devices...

  1. Place the 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts in the slow cooker, spray the Crock of your Cooker if it's not non-stick...  Newer slow cookers are usually non-stick material now...
  2. Pour the Catalina and Cranberry sauce over the chicken.
  3. Next pour the seasonings over the chicken and sauce. You can also do it in reverse order, its  not a problem.
  4. Add the Carrots and Tomato and spread everything evenly coating the chicken breasts...
  5. Cook on LOW for six hours, if you are home, stir it up a bit after about 4 hours, but not a problem, as it can cook on its own nicely for the duration of the time set

It really is a great Shabbat chicken, perfect to serve year round. It's wonderful with a side of steamed green beans, Brussel sprouts, or rice. I like the rice and vermicelli side mixes. If you keep kosher, you can get the Kosher Chicken Breasts at Trader Joes, and the rice side dishes via Manishevitz.  I've also had this with a side of potato or noodle kugel. Excellent!

Enjoy and let me know how yours turns out!
