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!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

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.

  1. That looks really yummy. I’ve actually never made chicken florentine before. I really liked the video tutorial, too! I’d be most interested in the hickory BBQ beef recipe maker since I could set the roast in my slow cooker during the day, and then finish it up when I get home from work. For a twist on the recipe, I’d try adding the BBQ beef to mac and cheese!

  2. The Asian fish tacos pack sounds like it would be a wonderful baked (or fried) egg roll. The baking sauce could be use to flavor any protein that goes into the egg roll and the finishing sauce would be used to dip. I’d probably do a baked tofu with bean sprouts and shredded carrots.

  3. the Asian fish taco recipe looked really good! i would definitely try that one.

  4. I would use the asian fish tacos pack to make a stir fry!

  5. I’d make the three cheese chicken florentine, but try to make it a bit healthier with some whole wheat penne, extra spinach, and some fresh tomatoes.
    Yum

  6. I’d substitute the chicken with fish(either Swai fillet or Salmon)
    or shrimp. That should make a delicious seafood pasta dish.

  7. I would use the New England post roast one on some cubed beef

  8. I would use the hickory BBQ to make version of my mother’s BBQ beef over rice. It combines leftover roast beef, onion and celery. And is served over rice

  9. I would make turkey sausage lasagna, one of my mother’s recipes.

  10. tweet–https://twitter.com/mami2jcn/status/377230432766414848

  12. I would make baked penne with vegetables

  13. I would use these sauces for a vegetarian lasagna!

  14. I love the Asian Fish Tacos Recipe Maker. I would probably want to try the sauces in the recipe suggested in the back first because Asian Fish Tacos sound delicious. Then, I’d probably try experimenting and use the baking sauce as a marinade for salmon, grill or broil the salmon and then use the finishing sauce with some mayo/sour cream/greek yogurt to make a dressing for a salad to go with the salmon.

  15. I would make a lasagna with eggplant and zucchini noodles.

  16. I would use the sauces with tortellini.

  18. I would start off with the Asian Fish Taco and put a little spin on it. I would prepare the tilapia fillets with the baking sauce and panko breading as described in the recipe. I would put this in the baking pan atop some uncooked rice, fresh vegetables I have on hand and the finishing sauce. Bake until complete and enjoy. =)

  28. Mmm, this recipe made my mouth water! I’d love to try the Sweet N’ Sour Chicken sauce with rice for my family!

  29. I would buy canned biscuits and smash them down to little pizza, Then put the sauce on top with kraft shredded cheese and top it with the chicken and serve as a football snack or after school snack!

  30. I always enjoy a nice chicken dish. Add these sauces, and some pasta and extra cheese and I’m in heaven.

  48. I would use the Verde Nacho Casserole and add chicken breast
    to it with fresh tomatoes.

  49. I think anything with an asian flavor (asian fish tacos box) to it works so well with salmon. I would marinade the salmon for about an hour in the fridge (not longer because then it starts to actually cook) and place it on the grill for some smokey flavor. I would add some sauteed julienne veggies (yellow, green and red bell peppers as well as carrots and some mushrooms) to soba noodles as a side dish for the meal adding some of the marinade to the noodles to complement the fish.
