Each container comes with a recipe, which is good since I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. Plus, there are many more recipes on the Philly website. I decided to start with the Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme and the recipe for Chicken Primavera with Pasta. It is a quick and easy recipe (my favorite kind!). I like using these convenience products, especially during the week when we have pottery/dance/scouts/baseball in the late afternoons or evenings. It certainly makes getting a good dinner on the table a lot easier.
In my rush to oversee homework and get the food on the table fast so my husband and son could get out the door for scouts, I neglected to take any pictures of the food prep or final results. So, I am borrowing the photos from the Philly website.
Chicken Primavera with Pasta
Cook and stir chicken in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 5 to 6 min. or until done. Add vegetables; cook 2 to 3 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
- 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
- 2 cups frozen stir-fry vegetables (such as broccoli, carrots, red peppers, snow peas, etc)
- 1 tub (10 oz.)PHILADELPHIA Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme
- 2 cups hot cooked fettuccine
Add cooking creme; cook and stir 3 min.
Stir in cooked pasta.
The results? A great tasting meal that was quick and easy to prepare. I served this with a salad and we all loved it. I think next time I will add some sun dried tomatoes for an extra flavor. I actually made a double batch of this and the leftovers dried out a lot more than I expected so I'm not sure how it will be for my lunch tomorrow but made fresh tonight it was great.
The Philly Cooking Cremes come in Original, Italian Cheese and Herb, Santa Fe Blend, and Savory Garlic. Be sure to check out the website for all sorts of ideas for each flavor. Next on my list to try is the Easy Chicken Enchiladas with the Santa Fe Blend. You'll see that recipe very soon, I'm sure : )
