A Night of New Recipes

Last night, Joshua and I decided that we were going to try out a couple of recipes that I came across on We had been talking about doing this for weeks, so it was finally time to just try something.

By the way, is a wonderful way to figure out what to make for dinner - they have this neat 'form' thing that you type in up to three ingredients that you have (or would like to use) and you decide what you want to make (Appetizer, Main Dish, Drink, Dessert, etc).. Then you hit 'Get Recipes' and it shows a list of all sorts of recipes that include the ingredients that you chose!! This 'form' thing is one of the main reasons that I use their site so often to find great recipes!

The Appetizer:

what you need

Tbsp. KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
lb. ground beef, cooked, drained
cup chopped tomato
Tbsp. PLANTERS Slivered Almonds
Tbsp. raisins (WE DID NOT USE THESE)
cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
medium jalapeño peppers

make it

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Heat dressing in medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Add meat, tomatoes, almonds and raisins; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; drain excess liquid. Stir in 1/4 cup of the cheese; set aside.
CUT each pepper in half lengthwise; remove and discard seeds. Place peppers on foil-covered baking sheet. Fill each with about 1 Tbsp. of the meat mixture.
BAKE 10 minutes; sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

These Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers were absolutely delicious! They were so easy to make and even better to eat! We will definitely be making these again soon.

The Main Dish:

what you need

 boneless skinless chicken thighs (1 lb.), pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
cup frozen broccoli florets, thawed, chopped
cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cooked, crumbled
pkt. SHAKE 'N BAKE Extra Crispy Seasoned Coating Mix

make it

HEAT oven to 400ºF.
PLACE chicken, smooth-sides down, on work surface; top with broccoli, cheese and bacon.
ROLL up each chicken thigh tightly, starting at one short end; secure with wooden toothpicks. Roll in coating mix until evenly coated. Place, seam-sides down, in single layer in shallow foil-lined pan.
BAKE 25 to 30 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Remove and discard toothpicks before serving.

These were fantastic! I don't know why I didn't think of doing something like this sooner. I mean, we LOVE broccoli, cheddar, and chicken - why not roll it all into one great bundle?!

This post is not sponsored in any way. I wrote this up to show that offers great, easy recipes for everyone.
