  • Meanwhile, mix VELVEETA, sour cream, lemon zest and dill weed in medium saucepan; cook on low heat until VELVEETA is melted, stirring occasionally.

Special Equipment Needed

How to Grate Citrus Peel

Always wash and dry citrus fruit before grating. Move the whole fruit up and down on the side of the grater with the smallest holes to remove ONLY the surface of the fruit peel. (The inner white part is bitter.) Continue to grate the fruit until you have the desired amount of grated peel, rotating the fruit on the grater as necessary. Use a pastry brush or old clean toothbrush to aid in cleaning grater.

Keeping it Safe

Use a visual test to ensure boneless chicken breasts are thoroughly cooked. If meat is totally white with no pink color, it is safe to eat.

I made the cheese sauce and put it on top of rice and chicken (the pre-cooked stuff that comes frozen in a bag) as a main dish, and had other veggies on the side. The sauce was good. It was quite strong in cheese flavor, so we only used a little sauce per person. Rich enough that you don't need much. Seems like it'd be a bit too strong to use in place of salad dressing.
