Dinner Ideas - Philly Cooking Creme

Ever had one of those days where you're just lacking inspiration in the kitchen?

Typically, the Hubby and I go out to eat on Saturday nights.  However, we decided to stay in tonight.  My parents will be visiting later in the week for a few days and we know we'll probably eat out a few times while they are here.  Why not save a few pennies this weekend?  We've all been there before.

I asked Hubby what he wanted for dinner, but his only suggestion was "chicken".  Yeah, that helps a lot.  :) 

I wandered off to the Neighborhood Market in hopes of finding my inspiration.  While strolling the aisles, I came across Philadelphia Cooking Creme.  I have seen Paula Deen make mention of this product via Facebook, but I had never tried it. 

This is the flavor I chose.  The Neighborhood Market only had 2 choices - this and the original. 

There was a recipe suggestion on the back and it involved chicken.  We have a winner!  I grabbed a bag of frozen stir-fry veggies to add with the chicken and creme sauce.  The recipe called for fettucini, but the store was out of Bertolli's fresh fettucini so I opted for tortellini instead. 

The dish turned out well.  The cooking creme added a nice flavor without overpowering the flavors of the veggies and chicken.  Hubby approved!


  1. yum! I've been wanting to try this creme but haven't yet. Your dish sounds good, I'll have to pick some up.

  2. Keli: I was really pleased with how the dish turned out. I would definitely use the product again. :)
