Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Note from the Kraft Kitchens
Thanks for your feedback. We made a few changes in our prep method to address your issues. We got great results by spreading the Caesar dressing and cheese onto 1 side of the chops only and using a spatula to turn them. We also increased the cook time from 2 minutes per side to 4 minutes.
Tip 2
Substitute
Prepare using KRAFT Lite Ranch Dressing.
