Quick and easy is always my motto when it comes to a weeknight dinner.  I don’t have a lot of extra time for planning and prep so it really needs to be a simple no frills recipe. I love to use simple resources online to find recipes such as KRAFT recipes. That’s exactly what I did this week and found plenty of easy recipes to choose from! 

I picked out a simple recipe for KRAFT Grilled Bruschetta Chicken from the KRAFT website. 

The recipe calls for:

I set out to the store to get all I needed for my recipe.  I started in the cheese section of my Safeway store.  I found the new KRAFT stand up pouches easily which feature the same 2 cups of cheese in a newly designed, easy stand up pouch.  They just happen to be on sale so I picked up a couple packages. ( I love the new design with less packaging and so easy to use while cooking to scoop without a mess!)  I chose to mix up my recipe a bit and picked up some Parmesan and Cheddar.

I then headed over to the dressing section to pick up the rest of my ingredients.  Well once I saw the Roasted Red Pepper Dressing, I knew I was going to substitute it to replace the Sun Dried Tomato Dressing.  I LOVE KRAFT Roasted Red Pepper Italian Dressing and knew it would be wonderful in this recipe! This inspired me to mix things up a bit further and I decided to add some pasta and veggies to make it a complete and filling meal! 

 

KRAFT Roasted Red Pepper Italian Dressing

I simply marinated my chicken in the dressing and baked it until it was cooked through.  For my pasta, I sauteed my veggies, added some cooked whole grain pasta and the salad dressing and then topped it all with the Parmesan Cheese from KRAFT.  Super quick and easy.  It also tasted amazing if I do say so myself!
