Mom’s Menu Maker: 5 Ways to Reinvent Dinner

Do you find yourself relying on the same old dishes week after week? Monday: grilled chicken. Tuesday: roasted chicken. Wednesday: baked chicken? Yes, dinner can get a bit boring when you’re thinking inside the (recipe) box. It’s time to shake things up and get things cookin’. Try these deliciously innovative ideas. You’ll find that dinner can be a little exciting and very enticing.

Tilapia Tacos
Coat tilapia filets in Kraft Fresh Take Cheese and Breadcrumb Mix (we suggest the Chili Lime and Panko flavor). Bake, and serve in a warmed corn tortilla with a fresh cabbage and lime salsa. Muy deliciosa!

Crispy Stuffed Shells
Stuff pasta shells with a mixture of ricotta cheese, spinach, and Kraft Fresh Take Italian Parmesan Cheese and Breadcrumb Mix. Before baking, cover your shells in sauce, and sprinkle on a bit more of your cheese-and-bread-crumb mixture (for added texture). The result: a crispy, tasty Italian feast.

Southwest Three-Cheese Chicken
Cover chicken breasts with Kraft Fresh Take Southwest Three Cheese Mixture. Bake for 30 quick minutes and serve with a refreshingly simple salad.

Savory Turkey Meatball Salad
Combine the ingredients in your Kraft Fresh Take Cheese and Breadcrumb Mixture (try the Savory Four Cheese recipe!), and blend with ground turkey. Shape and bake for 20 minutes and serve over a salad of arugula, walnuts, and apples.

Chili Lime and Chicken Bake
Combine your Chili Lime and Panko–flavored cheese and bread-crumb mixture with two cups of shredded chicken, two cups of white rice, one can of chicken broth, one cup of sour cream, and a jar of chopped roasted red peppers. Top your culinary concoction with more cheese and bread crumbs, and bake for 25 minutes. Dinner is served.
