My second product review... featuring more chicken! I did mention that we eat a LOT of chicken in my house!
I have seen commercials for the Philadelphia Cooking Creme (in four different flavors). I decided to try it out. When I got to the isle (next to the sour cream and cream cheese) I looked at the back of each. This one seemed the safest.
I chopped up chicken in small pieces and cooked on a skillet (I seasoned the chicken using different spices). All the while I had some whole wheat pasta boiling. After the chicken was done, I added 2 cups of frozen veggies. I used corn and peas because that is what I had. I think carrots and onions and peppers would also taste great!
After a couple minutes when the veggies were no longer frozen I poured in the cream and heated for a couple minutes.
This is child friendly, and relatively healthy. With one pound of chicken, 2 cups of veggies, and pasta this makes about 5 servings. You could also add more pasta to get more servings.
The hubs really liked it. He preferred it to the orange chicken, and thought the creme tasted like ranch.
I also liked it, however, I thought the flavor of the creme was really strong. I didn't put too much pasta, so that could be the reason. Next time I will add more chicken (the container called for 1 pound) and more veggies.
The price was OK (right under $3) but I think it is a good way to give some variety to our favorite form of protein.
Here is what ours looked like:
Yum! It was also good left over!!
Overall, this is a good buy just make sure to add enough other items so it is not so strong. Also, this tastes pretty good reheated! Much better than the orange chicken did!
