Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
For a touch of spice, add 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne) to the cooked vegetables with the broth, rice, cumin and remaining dressing.
How to Safely Handle Raw Chicken
Always wash hands, preparation surfaces and utensils in hot, soapy water before and after contact with raw chicken. Dry hands and surfaces with a clean towel or paper towels. Take special care in washing worn cutting boards as there may be hard-to-clean grooves or cracks that can collect bacteria.
