Sesame Chicken with McCormick Skillet Sauce
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve had an obsession lately with skillet sauces. I love how easy they are and how much they cut down on the prep work for a meal.
Yesterday, I told you how excited I was to get so many things accomplished on a Monday. I attempted to carry that energy over into Tuesday, but no such luck. I don’t even know where the time went. One of the few things I accomplished was getting this meal cooked.
During the week, I don’t have much energy for cooking, but I also don’t want us constantly eating out. I’ve been able to easily churn out meals with the help of various skillet sauces that are ready in about 15 minutes.
Recently, I was given an opportunity to review and try McCormick® Skillet Sauces which are currently available at Walmart, near the other McCormick spice and seasoning products. There are currently seven varieties available: Fajita with Roasted Chili; Fire Roasted Garlic Chili, Sesame Chicken Stir fry, Sicilian Chicken with Tomato, Smoky Applewood BBQ chicken, Sweet and Smoky Sloppy Joes, and Taco with Chipotle & Garlic. You can read more about the sauces here. After browsing through the selections, I purchased these three.
I started with the chicken sesame because I always have chicken and vegetables in my fridge.
The cooking part was easy. I browned the chicken in my pan, added in some broccoli and then added in the sauce. And in minutes, it was ready to eat!
Since I had some sesame on hand, I also sprinkled some on the plate.
I loved the aroma of the sauce. I could smell the soy, ginger and sesame. It reminded me of take-out stir fry which can be good or bad, depending on your personal preference. Since I grew up eating stir fry, my homemade versions tend to be a little lighter. But Mr. K, on the other hand, loved that it tasted more like a restaurant version and had no problem polishing off most of the plate. I am eager to try the other sauces though, especially the chili because I’ve been far too lazy to make chili from scratch.
Please note, I’m participating in the McCormick’s Skillet Sauce® blogger campaign and was compensated for my time. My opinions, as always, are my own.
