Because my husband and I both work full time outside the home, we try to plan our dinners in advance. However, sometimes life throws us for a loop and plans don’t always come to fruition. There have been many times where we looked at each other and said, “I thought you were cooking dinner!” In these instances, we generally reach for a frozen pizza, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or the old favorite….breakfast for dinner. Who doesn’t love pancakes, eggs and bacon for dinner?!?
But, I think our most disastrous dinner was not due to lack of planning, but lack of skill. We had been getting bored with the standard menu in our home, so I found a new dish to cook for our Sunday dinner, Raspberry Chicken. Most of you know that I am not known for my cooking skills, but I swear that I followed this recipe perfectly. I wish this was a “scratch and sniff” post, because it is not possible to share with you just how bad this dish smelled. It.Was.Not.Good. And into the trash it went.
For nights like this, you should keep Barber Foods new Seasoned Selects Stuffed Chicken Breasts in your freezer. Dinner rescued! In just 30-45 minutes, you can have a wonderful meal with no fuss. From the press release:
“Seasoned Selects are a new line of stuffed chicken breast entrees. They’re made with juicy, white meat chicken stuffed with savory combinations of meat, cheese and vegetables. Unlike the traditional Barber Stuffed Breast, however, this new line is not breaded, but is seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices, and is lower in calories, fat, and carbs. Seasoned Selects are a great dinner option for those nights when you need drama-free dinner prep. Just throw these entrees in the oven and get going on a quick salad or side dish. Barber Foods Seasoned Selects are a quick and unexpected dinner option that everyone in the family will love.“
We had the opportunity to try the Seasoned Selects Chicken Cordon Bleu and Spinach Florentine. After removing the chicken from the package (it’s raw), we placed them on a baking sheet and cooked for 35 minutes at 350F. Confirming the chicken was done, we checked the temperature to ensure it was at least 165F.
Although we decided to go with roasted potatoes, Barber Foods suggests many delicious and simple side dishes and sauces to accompany the Seasoned Selects. The Grilled Sweet Potato Fries look very yummy! As we plated our meal, the dish smelled wonderful. I cut open the Chicken Cordon Bleu and the cheesy goodness came pouring out! The chicken was seasoned very well and the stuffing was hot and delicious. My husband tried the Spinach Florentine and was equally impressed.
This was one of the easiest meals that we have prepared and it looked much fancier than the effort we put into it. Due to the size of the entree, I would suggest making at least one side dish and a salad to accompany the chicken breast. Both my husband and I agreed that we would definitely purchase Seasoned Selects Stuffed Chicken Breasts in the future!
One lucky reader will win Seasoned Selects and a $25 Grocery Gift Card to complete the meal!
