I tried this about 2 years ago and enjoyed it. I decided it would make a great Valentine's Day Dinner. I got it off the Kraft foods website. I changed it up a bit tonight though by using some of the new Philadelphia Italian Cheese & Herb Cooking Creme.
Tuscan Chicken Simmer
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves
4 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, cubed
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. pesto
2 c. grape or cherry tomatoes
1 c. Kraft Finely Shredded Italian Five Cheese blend
Heat large skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cover skillet with lid. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, on each side or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from the skillet; keep warm.
Reduce heat to medium. Add cream cheese, water, pesto and tomatoes to the skillet. Cook, uncovered, 2 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
Return chicken to skillet. Cook and stir 1 minute or until chicken is coated and heated through. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
It suggest serving over ravioli or fettuccine. I put mine over rotini tonight.
I used the Classico traditional basil pesto. You can change the taste just by changing the pesto. I need to try a different one next time.
