Chicken Primavera with Pasta (new product)

Have you seen the new Philly Cooking Cremes?  Have you tried them?  If you are some of my fellow Harris Teeter shoppers you may have been able to score this for free last week during Super Doubles.  I did and was very anxious to try it. 
Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme

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

Chicken Primavera with Pasta

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
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.
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 : )

*I was not asked to write this post, nor compensated in any way.  I just wanted to share a new product with you.  All opinions are 100% truthful and my own.


  1. I was looking at those the other day at the grocery store. I'm dying to try the Santa Fe Chicken Enchiladas too! Good to know the one you tried turned out good! It looks delicious!

  2. I have tried all 4 and I think this one is a family favorite. The Encilada recipe was the first one I tried and my husband liked it. Where did you find these at at Harris Teeter? I must be looking in the wrong spot. I have gotten mine at Walmart.

  3. I've never heard of this product. It sure would be handy to pull together a quick evening meal.

    I'm jealous about the Harris Teeter. The closest one to me is over an hour away. We used to have a HT and they left town. I love that store!

  4. Yours is the third post i a week to feature the cooking cream....I have yet to see this locally but will continue to look. This looks fab and easy so a win-win!

  5. Your Chicken Primavera looks wonderful. I am so excited that you introduced us to the new product. My mind is going crazy creating new dishes...Thank you so much for sharing this with us at FULL PLATE THURSDAY, and please come back!

  6. Hey Jennifer. Oh' this sounds good and looks yummy. I haven't tried the new Philly product yet. I found you over at Purex Insiders - Southern Insiders post. I live in Jacksonville, FL and thought I'd drop in for a visit. I'm a new follower and hope to get to know you. I'd love you to stop by and visit my blog sometime.

    Hugs...Tracy :)
