Kraft Kitchens Tips

Cook Once, Eat Twice
Cook 4 additional small boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb.) in additional 2 Tbsp. KRAFT Tuscan House Italian Dressing on medium heat 5 min. on each side or until chicken is done (165ºF). Refrigerate for later use in making Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie.
Substitute 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs for the chicken breasts. Cook on medium-high heat 4 min. on each side or until evenly browned. Continue as directed.
How to Toast Nuts in Skillet
When a skillet dish calls for toasted nuts, there's no need to heat up the oven. Before beginning the recipe, simply toast the nuts for a few minutes in the ungreased skillet on medium heat, stirring frequently just until nuts are lightly browned. Remove nuts from skillet and continue recipe as directed.
