Target Recipes: Quick and Easy Weeknight Chicken Dinner (Three Ingredients)

Target Recipes - Creamy Stuffed Chicken Breast

 

Here is a REALLY quick, easy, and delicious weeknight recipe the whole family will like.  This chicken dinner has all of the qualities of comfort food, yet can be made in a pinch! I actually came up with this recipe by altering a stuffed chicken recipe to make it faster and easier.

Creamy Stuffed Chicken Breast

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 package of Kraft Fresh Take (I prefer the bacon and cheese)
  • 1 package of cream cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Use a meat mallet to flatten the chicken breasts on a cutting board (if you don’t have a meat mallet, you can use a bowl or a plate to press down on the chicken to flatten it)
  3. Generously spread cream cheese on one side of each chicken breast and fold them in half like a sandwich
  4. Shake each piece in the Kraft Fresh Take breading and seasoning
  5. Place into a greased baking pan and bake for 30 minutes or so.  Breading should be golden and the chicken should NOT have any pink left inside.

Variations:

  • I like to stir in mild diced chilis with the cream cheese for a little kick (look for a small can in the Mexican food aisle)
  • You can use an variety of Kraft Fresh Take mix that you would like
  • I also like to low-fat cream cheese.  Not only is it better for you, the texture is also much easier to spread.

I like to serve this dinner with a simple side like butter noodles or Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice.  I also grab a bag of Green Giant Frozen Vegetables.  There are several varieties in the frozen department.
