Kraft Three Cheese Chicken Florentine and a Giveaway
As I alluded to in my first post on Kraft Recipe Makers, in addition to sharing some of my experiences using this new Kraft product, I also have a great giveaway, sponsored by Kraft and BlogHer: a $100 Visa gift card!
Also in addition to my step by step photos, I am also providing you with a video tutorial for this Three Cheese Chicken Florentine dish.
Kraft Recipe Makers is a new product that layers two different complimentary sauces to create a homemade dish. Complex dishes are made easier with the pre-made sauces provided by Kraft, combined with fresh ingredients for a healthy, home cooked meal.
There are currently 9 featured recipes in the product line (though for each one, there are additional recipe alternatives), and three different cooking methods: skillet, oven and slow cooker.
Last time I experimented with a skillet recipe, so this time I decided to showcase an oven recipe. When you read oven, you might think this recipe will take a lot more time, but the whole thing is ready in just about 30 minutes!
The box provided two sauces, a simmer sauce and a cheese blend. All you need to provide are a few ingredients: chicken, baby spinach, pasta, and mozzarella cheese.
The back of the box provides easy instructions as well as other recipe alternatives.
First you boil and drain the pasta.
Next, you cook your chicken in a skillet until all the pieces are cooked all the way through.
Then, you add in Kraft’s simmer sauce and allow the chicken to simmer in the sauce for about 2-3 minutes.
After that, you put your pasta back into the pot, add in your spinach and Kraft’s cheese sauce and give it a stir.
Then you pour your pasta mixture into a prepared casserole dish.
Pour the chicken on top.
Finally, sprinkle some mozzarella cheese and then it’s ready to go in the oven. You heat it for about 15 minutes, or until the dish is heated all the way through, and it’s ready to eat.
You can also check out the video tutorial here (this is my first attempt, so sorry if it isn’t the best):
This recipe also gave me a chance to break out these cute individual serving pots, which also helps keep the food warm.
Mr. K really enjoyed this and immediately asked if there was more. You can read more about Kraft Recipe Makers here.
