Monday Menu ~ Philly Cooking Creme

I was going to skip today’s post because I’ve been sick, then got pink eye, and just to not feel left out my 2 year old son decided to get pink eye and puke on me all in the same day. That warrants skipping, right? But I made a deal with myself and can’t skip…. I’m sticking to my guns. So bear with me…. this one may not be all that good.

Have you ever had one of those nights where you had no clue what you were going to make for dinner and then while wandering the grocery store you happened upon one of those demo ladies who made something really tasty and you knew at that moment you found dinner?

Or maybe that just happens to me.

Anyway she handed my daughter and I this little cup of magic. Chicken, rice, broccoli, and Philadelphia Lemon Herb Cooking Creme. YUM! She gave me complete instructions and we were on our way to a tasty dinner.

Philadelphia Cooking Creme

First of all I was surprised how good the delicious the Lemon Herb Creme was…. smooth, a bit of lemon flavor… not to much though, and fresh herbs. Honestly, I don’t think that I could have done better with a sauce. We’ve tried a couple of the other Philadelphia Cooking Creme’s and they were good too but not on the same level as the Lemon Herb.

The ingredients are super simple.


2 cups of rice – white, brown, instant, or not. You could even use the precooked rice.

12 oz bag of frozen broccoli

4 chicken breasts

1 tub of Philadelphia Lemon Herb Cooking Creme


Season and brown the chicken and when it’s down set aside to cool a bit so you can cut it up.

While the meat is cooking get the rice started as well as the broccoli. So here comes that last easy step… mix the rice, chicken, broccoli, and Cooking Creme all together and let simmer on low for a couple minutes. Season with salt and pepper if you think it needs it.

I had my camera sitting on the counter so I could take all the pics that I needed and then…. then I forgot about it. It wasn’t until I was putting the leftovers into a dish that I realized that I hadn’t got a picture of the finished product. Sorry…. but this time all you get are the leftovers.

Have you tried the new Philly Cooking Creme’s yet? Which one is your favorite?

I wasn’t paid to talk about the Philadelphia Cooking Creme’s or even give a sample to try out but I would be more than happy to if they were to send me some! This are purely my thoughts and opinions on a tasty sauce.
