Chicken Bruschetta Pasta



It's been another long day and after dealing with work, the last thing I need to worry about is getting dinner on the table for my family. There's usually leftovers lurking in the fridge but even then, it doesn't always sound appetizing. That is, unless I can give my leftovers a makeover. With the help of Kraft Recipe Makers, I was able to make a delicious Chicken Bruschetta Pasta that was quick, easy and it helped me use up leftovers too. This Chicken Bruschetta Pasta takes leftover fried chicken and pairs it up with a flavorful simmering sauce, finishing sauce, along with a healthy dose of grated Parmesan and fresh basil over pasta...

So what are Kraft Recipe Makers? They are a new line of Kraft complementary sauces to help make some delicious meals. There are nine different sauce products, and each package has two complementary, ready-to-go sauces that create a dish with layers of flavor. When I looked at the line of sauces they offer, I soon noticed that many of them are sauces that are complex or usually take hours of cooking time to prepare on my own. Although there are nine different styles of sauces offered, you can certainly play with them to create your own dish.
To use, simply combine the two complementary Kraft Recipe Makers sauces with fresh ingredients, such as your choice of protein, produce and grains. Before you know it, you'll have a meal ready for the table that has layers of flavor. There are even some sauces that work really well in a slow cooker as well as more traditional use on the stovetop or in the oven.

What I especially like about these sauces is that they allow you to create quality meals even on a busy weeknight, and are flexible enough to use whatever you have on-hand to tie your ingredients together easily. For this pasta dish, I had some leftover fried chicken and pasta to use up. Using the Kraft Recipe Makers Chicken Bruschetta Pasta sauces helped me tie these ingredients together quicker and with lots of flavor that would have otherwise taken me a little longer.


Here's a little video just showing how easy Kraft Recipe Makers is to use!
What could you do with these sauces for a weeknight dinner? Any ideas or suggestions for recipes you could use with the sauces from Kraft Recipe Makers? Your ideas and suggestions just might win you a $100 Visa gift card!

  34. I think anything with an asian flavor (asian fish tacos box) to it works so well with salmon. I would marinade the salmon for about an hour in the fridge (not longer because then it starts to actually cook) and place it on the grill for some smokey flavor. I would add some sauteed julienne veggies (yellow, green and red bell peppers as well as carrots and some mushrooms) to soba noodles as a side dish for the meal adding some of the marinade to the noodles to complement the fish.
