Kraft Fresh Take Southwest Three Cheese Chicken

Fortunately, Linda is now home after having been out of town taking care of her mother. While she was gone, our youngest daughter and I were left to fend for ourselves. Since we had some of the Kraft Fresh Take recipes on hand, I decided to let her try the Cheddar Jack & Bacon (which I made before with Linda) and also the Southwest Three Cheese, which was new to both of us. Needless to say, I made them on separate nights. Since I’ve already written about the Cheddar Jack & Bacon, I’m only going to cover the Southwest Three Cheese today.

Kraft Fresh Take - Southwest Three CheeseAs with the Cheddar Jack & Bacon, this was a very easy dish to prepare. These Kraft dishes remind me a lot of the old Shake-n-Bake. Simply open the bag, separate the two sides and mix. Then add your chicken and mix again. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

As I mentioned in that post, don’t flip the chicken halfway through the cooking. It might seem like a good idea, but it looks a lot better if you don’t. Either way they still cook completely so why not make something eye catching and appealing.

Kate considered a little hot sauce to go with hers but opted not to so she could see how they were. We both really enjoyed them. I must admit I had a small bit of concern over seeing garlic listed in the ingredients, but I didn’t let that get the better of me. I couldn’t taste the garlic at all.

So far, I’m pretty impressed with the Kraft Fresh Take meals. They are very easy to make and taste great. I think we still have a few varieties to try though including Rosemary & Roasted Garlic. That one will be interesting.
