Please note, this giveaways is now closed. I recently had a chance to try out Campbell’s line of Sauces that help prepare quick and easy meals. Along with this review, I am also running a $100 Target gift card giveaway, with further details at the end of this post. If you’re a regular reader, you know I’m always interested in trying to find ways to make easy meals.
Campbell’s new sauces focus on “Real Life. Real Dinner.” The line of sauces fall into three categories: skillet, slow cooker and oven. I was able to find them easily near the gravy section at Vons and they are available at many other major grocery chains as well. After much perusing, the two that really caught my attention were Thai Chicken Curry and Chicken Marsala. Both are dishes I really love and will order at restaurants, but I’ve never tried to make before in real life.
Last Sunday, I was craving Thai food, but I have a rule of trying to eat a real dinner at home on Sunday evenings. But the reality was, I was too exhausted to do much cooking and it was also extremely hot outside. Then I remembered my Campbell’s Thai Chicken Curry Skillet Sauce.
All you need to do for this chicken curry is to add chicken! As a result, this was ready in about 15 minutes. I made some rice to go with it, and waiting for the rice to finish cooking ended up being the most difficult part of this dish.
The directions on the back are straightforward. You take a pound of boneless chicken breast and slice it into thin strips. Then you brown the strips in a pan with some oil. Once the chicken is finished, you pour in the sauce, stir and simmer for about 5 minutes, and it’s done! Super simple.
I also added some green bell peppers to my dish to add some veggies in there and some fresh Thai basil.
Verdict? I was pretty pleased. I’m not quite sure which type of Thai curry they were going for– to me it tasted like the green curry commonly served at Thai restaurants in the US. It had a rich coconut flavor, a mild sweetness, and was quite spicy. This version actually rivaled many of the ones I’ve had in Thai restaurants, and at $1.99 a pack, my version was far cheaper than going to a Thai restaurant and ordering the dish.
I haven’t yet had a chance to try the other sauces so I can’t speak about those, but my first impression of the Thai Chicken Curry is very favorable and I can’t wait to try others.
