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.

  3. I would use the vedre chicken enchilada sauce in my Chicken Cassorole enchilada recipe

  4. I would try chicken tacos.

  5. Because we like Chinese food but my hubby doesn’t like chicken, I’d use the Sweet & Sour Chicken recipe maker with either pork or shrimp.

  6. I would use the Tex-Mex Chicken Fajita variety to pep up my Caldo De Pollo.

  7. I would love to try the New England Pot Roast sauce 🙂

  8. This recipe looks yummy.I would like to try it!

  9. I’d use the 3 cheese sauce to make enchiladas.

  10. I would make the Chicken Cacciatore and add mushrooms.

  11. I’d make chicken cacciatore

  12. I have used the Hickory BBq Beef sauces with a pork roast in the crock pot. I shredded it, put it on a Hawaiian roll, then also put cole slaw on the sandwich. Yummy!

  13. I’d make a pasta bake with fall veggies.

  14. I’d probably use the sweet & sour chicken one, but with tofu and veggies – fry it all up in a pan and go to town! yum!

  15. I would like to try the stuffed peppers, and would use their recipe. My mother never prepared this dish and I’ve never had great success

  16. I recently discovered the fake beef tips that Gardein makes and they are DELICIOUS! I am looking forward to trying them in all the meals I used to make when I was a meat-eater. That said, I would love to try them using the Beef Burgundy recipe and the New England Pot Roast sauce!

  17. The New England Pot Roast sauce would allow me to cook a whole meal in my slow cooker while I’m at work. Dinner could be on the table in just minutes after I get home. Leftovers would work great for taco or burrito filling or as the basis for a great soup.

  18. The Chicken Brushcetta Pasta would be great but served with fish.

  19. i would make the Shrimp Puttanesca recipe it would be really good

  22. I would attempt to try and recreat my dad’s chicken cacciatore which I remember having corn, tomatoes, pasta and more in it. he use to make it for me all the time until it seemed every time he did,my pacemaker (had that at an early age) quit working so he quit making it for me. It was so good, I loved it

  23. I’d make the chicken alfredo w/roasted veggies 🙂

  24. I think I would mix the two sauces together and put them on as a pizza sauce with pepperoni, cheese, basil, fresh thyme, oregano, and possibly some caramelized shallots!
