  • Cook chicken in boiling water in covered skillet 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, mix VELVEETA, sour cream, lemon zest and dill weed in medium saucepan; cook on low heat until VELVEETA is melted, stirring occasionally.
  • Cut chicken into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange on individual lettuce-lined plates along with tomatoes and pea pods. Drizzle with VELVEETA sauce.

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.
