I am pretty sure this recipe was made for us couponers since it uses Kraft salad dressing as one of the main ingredients. I don’t know about you all but in the summer I can get salad dressing pretty darn cheap with sale and coupons (if not free!) so finding recipes that use up items in my stockpile is always a plus.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
  • 1 lb. (2) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 (8 oz. each) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, cubed, softened
