3 Cheese Chicken Florentine #festfoods

These colder temperatures have us thinking about whipping up a tasty dish of warm comfort food! This dish, Kraft Recipe Makers Three Cheese Florentine, is the perfect cure for the wintertime blues!

To start, pre-heat your oven to 375°F and spray a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cut your chicken breasts into bite size pieces. Pro tip: You get the most uniform size pieces if you butterfly your chicken breasts first.
