Something you will rarely see on this blog is cooking posts. I don't really cook, in our house it's the older girls and my boyfriend that do the majority of the cooking. During the week though while everyone is working and at school, I have to feed Sam and get her to her extracurricular activities on time. One those days especially, fast and easy works best and my poor kid is tired of sandwiches and soup. Last week I was lucky when Campbell's came to rescue with their new Campbell’s Skillet Sauces, which provide a way to make a simple, yet delicious dinner in 15 minutes.
Campbell’s Skillet Sauces are available in six (6) varieties.
- Creamy Chipotle with Roasted Corn & Black Beans
- Marsala with Mushrooms & Garlic
- Thai Green Curry with Lemongrass & Basil
- Toasted Sesame with Garlic & Ginger
- Fire Roasted Tomato with Red Bell Peppers & Chiles
- Scampi with White Wine & Garlic
Sam had two ballet classes and story time last week and those are the days we are really in a hurry, so I took advantage and put the sauces to the test on Tuesday and Thursday. What's great about these sauces is how easy they make preparing dinner. I normally don't cook poultry because it's time consuming and messy but all I needed was one pound of boneless chicken breast and 5 minutes prep time to wash and cut the chicken into small pieces. After that all it took was 15 minutes and three steps.
- HEAT. Heat oil in skillet over medium/high heat.
- ADD. Add your protein or vegetables and cook until browned.
- STIR. Stir in sauce and heat to boil. Reduce heat and cover for five minutes or until protein is cooked through and/or vegetables are tender.
A side of steamed vegetables and rice and I had a perfectly delicious chicken dinner that Sam and I could enjoy and still make it to ballet practice on time. Usually we rush out without dinner and end up grabbing something on the way home, which can get expensive and is not usually healthy. Plus sitting down to dinner with my little one means quality time we don't usually get, and she had a better practice with her tummy full.
So far we have tried the Creamy Chipotle and the Toasted Sesamy which was really good. I look forward to trying the Scampi once I can find it at the store, each time I go it is sold out. Overall I really liked how even someone who hates to cook, like me, can make a really good meal that I can feel proud about and happy giving my little one.
