Creamy Chicken Florentine Recipe

Thank you to Kraft Foods for offering me the opportunity to recreate a recipe with PHILADELPHIA Cooking Creme. Please click here to learn more about all the PHILADELPHIA Cooking Creme flavors and recipes. 

As a busy mom of three I often rely on quick and easy meals to get me through dinner time. Between sports, homework and other mom duties, spending hours in the kitchen just isn’t a possibility. So when I recently had the opportunity to try out the new PHILADELPHIA cooking creme I was impressed with how convenient it made cooking a family meal. 

I made Creamy Chicken Florentine using the Savory Garlic cooking creme. The name alone makes the meal sound appealing and it definitely did not disappoint. The creamy sauce gave it a comfort meal feel while the spinach and bell peppers made it feel light and healthy. The kids loved it and around these parts it’s rare that we eat a meal everyone can agree on.

To make Creamy Chicken Florentine I used the recipe from the Kraft website, with a few adaptions. I omitted the pine nuts and added red and green bell peppers in addition to the red peppers. We served ours with a fresh baguette.

Here’s a little video I made of my daughter and I cooking. She loves helping me in the kitchen. Don’t be surprised if you see her with her own cooking show 20 years from now. :)

The creme was so easy to use, I can’t wait to try the Creamy Pesto and Savory Lemon & Herb next. Have you used any of the PHILADELPHIA Cooking Cremes? What are some of your favorite recipes using them. I’m always looking for new recipes to try.
