Hi! It's Jilly. Yesterday was such a beautiful day! nice. With Spring sports in full swing, and Spring Break and Easter approaching, I need some new ideas for easy, light, and on-the-go dinners! Enter Kraft's Fresh Take. I found these with the cheeses at Walmart. They are a blend of shredded cheese, breadcrumbs, and spices. Pretty cool. huh?

I nabbed the Southwest Three-Cheese kind 'cause my kids love things spicy! I got some chicken tenderloins and coated them in the blend. When Emma found out that I'd be tossing the chicken in a bag she wanted in on the action! That's another cool thing about Fresh Take. It's already in a resealable bag, cutting out *another* step for those busy nights!

I placed the tenderloins on a cookie sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray, then cooked them at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes.

While the chicken was cooking I whipped up a special sauce made up of Ranch dressing, lime juice, smoked paprika, garlic, and salt. I slathered the sauce on the sandwich rolls, then added the chicken and some spinach.

They were a big hit! My son said the sandwiches were delicious and asked if I could make them every night! Ha ha! And, the leftovers were great, too. I took a sandwich with me to school the next day and it was just as good cold. I love when that happens!

Update: I made a little salad for lunch today with the leftover chicken, spinach, and tomato. I whipped up more of the smoked paprika ranch dressing to eat with the salad. Soooo yummy! I love how versatile this chicken is!!

I can't wait to try the other flavors of Fresh Take! If you want to try it out, during the month of April you can get a coupon for $1 off Fresh Chicken when you buy Fresh Take at Walmart.
