MAKING COOKING A LITTLE EASIER -KRAFT ITALIAN DRESSING



This is my new best friend in the kitchen.  I had the most tender tasting chicken, and when I asked how they got the chicken so soft and tender, this is what it was,  Kraft Zesty Italian.
I have been marinating everything with it.  Meats and veggies come out yummy.  I have also been using for salad dressing, haha, of course.   

It has the perfect blend of seasonings, garlic, vinegar and oil.  The food doesn't come out sour from the vinegar.  I also just add a couple tablespoons when I am sauteing meat or making any side dish.  

Today I took cheery tomatoes and sauteed them in a  1TBS. dressing until soft. You don't need any more because the tomatoes release some liquid.  I added cooked microwaved brown rice, 2 squirts of dressing,  a bag of spinach and warmed everything through.   Chicken would complete this dish, but I didn't have any.  It was delish!  

It also comes in Fat Free(mmm I don't know if I like this one) and one made with olive oil, but I'm going to try different flavors too.  Saves me the time and money of buying all the different seasonings.  It's easy in a bottle.

What is your secret cooking weapon?  What's your favorite dressing?

My secret weapons are Adobo seasoning, Mrs. Dash, and Seasoned Salt by Tastefully simple. I can throw any of these items over any kind of meats and vegetables and have them turn out yummers.

Yum! I like ranch. I dip just about anything in it.

@Ashwini I have to try the adobo seasoning. Mrs. Dash is excellent too.
