If you’re like me, you recently received some tasty, new mayonnaise samples from Kraft. We received the Chipotle and the Garlic & Herb samples. We realized right away, that a sandwich-sized taste of these delicious new spreads was not going to be enough and I headed right out to purchase the full-size bottles. I knew I was going to try them with grilled chicken the moment that I tasted them.
Kraft Chipotle or Garlic & Herb Grilled Chicken
What I did was so simple you won’t believe it’s real! I used a pastry brush to brush the tops and bottoms of boneless, skinless chicken breasts with either the Kraft Chipotle Mayonnaise or the Kraft Garlic and Herb Mayonnaise. I laid the chicken on a cookie sheet to “marinate” at room temperature for about fifteen minutes.
Then I put the chicken breasts onto a pre-heated grill and maintained the temperature at about 350°. I didn’t use any other seasonings and I grilled them on one side until nicely browned, turned them and cooked on the other side until the juices ran clear.
The color was beautiful and the flavor was amazing! David’s favorite was the Chipotle flavored chicken and the kids and I voted the Garlic & Herb into a close first place! Both were simple and delicious and with some tasty sweet potato oven fries and steamed broccoli, it was a quick meal that tasted like I spent much more time than I had in preparing it. I was pleasantly surprised at how deeply flavorful the chicken had become with only 15 minutes to marinate.
I’m excited at the prospect of being able to flash freeze the chicken breasts, once their brushed with the new Kraft Mayonnaise varieties and allowing them to marinate in the freezer for future quick suppers, too. You know I love make-ahead freezer meals for time and money savings. This easy entree would be perfect!
Sweet Potato Oven Fries
Our side dish was just as simple. Peel and slice two large sweet potatoes into wedges. Toss with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread the wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 425° until they are fork tender, and crisp on the outside. They will brown fairly deeply, but they aren’t burnt. It’s just the caramelization of the natural sugars. They were unbelievably yummy!
