Kraft Kitchens Tips

Use Your Grill
Preheat greased grill to medium heat. Grill chicken 7 to 8 min. on each side or until cooked through. For a smoky flavor, place a pan of soaked apple, hickory or oak chips on the grill grate next to the chicken during the grilling time.
Use Your Stove
Cook chicken in large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat until cooked through, turning over halfway through the cooking time.
Storing Asparagus
To store asparagus, stand fresh spears upright in a container filled with about 1 inch of water. Cover loosely with a plastic bag and refrigerate. Or, store in refrigerator with a damp paper towel wrapped around base of stalks and cover loosely with a plastic bag. Asparagus is best when cooked the day it is purchased, but will keep up to 3 or 4 days. Wash just before using.
