  2. Thanks for some great chicken ideas! I have a favourite chicken breast preparation that I’ll share with you…I don’t really have a recipe because I just threw it together one night as an experiment and it turned out so yummy! I serve this often when I have guests over and eveyone raves about it.

    *Stuffed Chicken Breasts* (Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees)
    1) Butterfly chicken breasts.
    2) Marinate chicken in a pan for at least 30 min in the fridge with Kraft Sun-Dried Tomato and Oregano Salad Dressing.
    3) Remove chicken from the marinade but do not discard the marinade.
    4) Stuff chicken breasts with a generous amount of goat cheese and roasted red peppers. Close chicken breasts and secure with a tooth pick. (I have on occasion also stuffed with spinach, sun-dried tomato, onions…you can really use anything you personally enjoy!)
    5) Place chicken back in the pan with the marinade and completely cover with Kraft’s Sun-Dried Tomato and Oregano Salad Dressing. Add dollops of goat cheese to the salad dressing. (As much or as little as you like!)
    6) Bake in a 400 degree oven for approximately 30-40 minutes.
    7) Serve on a bed of rice or pasta with the pan juices served as a sauce on top.
    8) Eat!!! :)
