Kraft Kitchens Tips

Small Changes Add Up
Small ingredient substitutions, such as PHILADELPHIA Chive & Onion 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese and KRAFT Reduced Fat Parmesan Style Grated Topping, result in a savings of 30 calories and 4g of total fat, including 3g of sat fat, per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a bagged green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Dressing, such as Italian or Ranch.
How to Easily Cut Chicken
Cutting boneless skinless chicken breasts into pieces can be a slippery task. Make it safer and prevent the knife from slipping by cutting the chicken while it is partially frozen. The firmer chicken is much easier to cut and handle.
