Sweet & Sour Chicken }Kraft Recipe Makers and $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway


Sweet & Sour Chicken}Kraft Recipe Makers


Today I am back to share another one of the delicious Kraft Recipe Makers with you. When I opened the box that Kraft had sent me with the nine different Kraft Recipe Makers, Tessa got so excited about them and the whole concept. As a college student she could really see the beauty of it! A quick and easy, delicious meal in not much time. Worked for her and it works for me. We loved that they combined delicious sauces with fresh ingredients.

Since college students, along with the rest of us, can be short on time and often short on ingredients, Kraft Recipe Makers solves that problem for us. You use your own fresh ingredients (protein, vegetable, and grain) along with Kraft’s premade simmering and finishing sauce to create a delicious meal.

The first Recipe Maker we tried was the Verde Chicken Enchilada which we loved. Next, we decided to give the Sweet & Sour Chicken one a try and we loved it just as much. Using the Sesame Ginger Simmering Sauce and the Sweet & Sour Pineapple Finishing Sauce provided, you can then add in or tweak the other ingredients to your family’s tastes and what’s in your refrigerator.

I used chicken but it would also be great with pork. It called for a red pepper but I decided to add in a green pepper too. The box recommended a red onion but I didn’t have one so I used a yellow onion – still delicious!

Having the sauces ready to go for you and the recipe suggestions on the box make providing a delicious, nutritious meal for your family so much easier. Can you tell I really, really like these??!! With the addition of some canned pineapple and some brown rice we had a delicious meal in less than 30 minutes. That makes me a happy cook and my family happy eaters!

While I was visiting one of my daughter’s college apartments recently I decided that would be the perfect place to show you how easy and doable the Kraft Recipe Makers are. Usually when I cook in my children’s apartments I get frustrated because of their lack of sauces, herbs, spices etc. Well, that frustration was eliminated with the Recipe Maker since all of the sauces and seasonings were in sauces provided. Enjoy this fun little video and see how quick and easy you can prepare dinner, even in a college apartment! Be sure to check out the duct tape that is holding the freezer shut!!


Guess what my daughter will be packing for going back to college! Kraft Recipe Makers!

    I’d use the Chicken Cacciatore sauces for a casserole with chicken, pasta, onion, bacon, zucchini and cover the whole thing with shredded cheese.

  2. LAMusing says

    I’d use the Sweet and Sour chicken but substitute shrimp. I’d add chunks of pineapple and snap peas and serve over rice. Leftovers could be used in lettuce wraps for lunch.

    The sauces would also be great with a bit of tomato sauce and brown sugar to make sweet and sour BBQ lamb ribs!

  3. crystal smith says

    Im still pretty new to cooking so Im not very creative yet and still rely on others recipes (like yours lol) to put something tasty on the table but I would love to try to make the Florentine-Stuffed Chicken Breasts with their Three Cheese Florentine Recipe Maker…sounds yummy and I love how easy and quick all their recipes are! Talk about a great way to make a weeknight easier!

  4. Rosie says

    I would make a lasagna with Three Cheese Chicken Florentine. I often substitute chicken (ground or otherwise) for beef – the results are yum!

  5. Lauren Flynn says

    I’d use the chicken bruschetta pasta recipe maker to simply our romano-encrusted bruschetta pasta dinner- a family fav!

  6. Karen Drake says

    I would use the KRAFT RECIPE MAKERS Tex-Mex Fajita Skillet mix to make a breakfast burritos with sausage, scrambled eggs and Kraft shredded cheese.

  7. Lorena Keech says

    Because y husband won’t eat chicken, I’d use the Sweet & Sour Chicken recipe maker with pork or even beef to make a Chinese meal.

  8. Chelsea A says

    Honestly I think I’d go with sweet and sour tofu …! Fry up some veggies, fry up some tofu, use the sauces … sounds great! Easy! Love this idea! Have to look for them at the store! Hope they have them!

    Thanks for the contest!

  9. Marcy Strahan says

    I could make my crawfish noodle casserole using the cheesy chicken Florentine sauce & cream cheese & green onions!

  10. Sandra VanHoey says

    I would make the Chicken Cacciatore. My dad use to make this for me years ago when I was in my 20’s and it seems e very time he would make if, I ended up having my pacemaker go out so he quit making it for me :-(. His had corn and also tomatoes along with the other great things. There recipe sounds awesome so I’d try that and attempt to add to have it turn out like his
