Did you know that there are tons of people ready to make a dinner recipe with chicken every night? I know I’m one of them on most of those nights. But you can add one more requirement to any recipe that I might try: it has to be easy!
Marybeth’s note: Honestly, I’m terrible at meal planning, so I need a chicken recipe that can be ready to go in 30 minutes, tops.
McCormick Spices invited me to try my hand in making the Herb Chicken Skillet with Spinach and Tomatoes: a new recipe that promised to be delicious and ready to serve in 30 minutes. Perfect!
My little ones and I were spending over a week in Northern Minnesota to enjoy an extended visit with my grandma. Since I was responsible for all the meals, I knew that I’d be serving this new chicken recipe one night!
After a trip to the grocery store to pick up some ingredients plus McCormick Basil Leaves, Black Pepper, Garlic Powder and Oregano Leaves, I realized I had purchased TWO bottles oregano leaves and no basil. I didn’t even notice it until I after I had taken the below photo and was ready to add the herbs to the dish!
Thankfully, my grandma actually had McCormick Basil Leaves in her spice cabinet, reminding me that McCormick really is a classic brand that appeals to all ages!
I checked the clock and completed the dish from start to finish in 20 minutes, just like the recipe said. Although it’s suggested to serve the dish over pasta or couscous, I made baked potatoes (my grandma’s favorite!) and they were perfectly delicious together! Haiden and Piper even really liked the chicken, which is a HUGE victory in my book!
The recipe made plenty for two kids and two adults, and there were enough leftovers to provide a full meal for me on a different night. Plus, the recipe itself is a keeper! In addition to being quick, the ingredients are simple and the flavors are delicious without being overpowering.
I’m thrilled to announce that I’m offering a special Homemade in America McCormick Gift Set pictured above to one lucky reader!
