Let's Make It
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.
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.
