annie's organic cheddar snack mix encrusted chicken breasts with chipotle yogurt dipping sauce + A GIVEAWAY! // cait's plate

Annie’s Homegrown recently reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in being a part of #teamannies to which I excitedly replied “yes! yes! yes!”

Being a Connecticut girl, I feel particularly proud of the Annie’s Homegrown brand and all that they stand for and was thrilled to get to have some fun with their products in the kitchen as they fit seamlessly into food philosophy.

I think the “About Us” blurb on the Annie’s Homegrown site says it best “For the past 25 years, Annie’s has been nourishing families with simple, down-to-earth foods that taste great and are easy to love. Our passionate team seeks out the best real ingredients Mother Earth has to offer, harvesting pure, natural flavors to make delicious foods every family can feel good about.”

What more could you really ask for fro m a product?!

When I opened my box of goodies (complete with chapstick, an adorable t-shirt and an Annie’s Homegrown branded wooden spork!) I immediately went for the Annie’s Homegrown organic cheddar snack mix.

The gigantic handfuls later and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.  Process it in the food processor, coat organic, boneless, skinless chicken breasts with it and bake it in the oven.

I paired it with a spicy chipotle yogurt sauce (2 easy ingredients that you can whip up as the chicken bakes!) which just sent the whole dish over the top for me.

Serve this up for a high-protein afternoon snack the kids will love or for dinner with some cooked broccoli and carrots and you have a complete meal the whole family will love!
