Let Seasoned Selects Rescue Dinner: $25 Gift Card Giveaway

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!

  14. Hard to pick one disaster, been a few over the years. Usually involves me trying to cook some new recipe and making a totally mess of it LOL

  15. Cooking my first turkey for Thanksgiving was a disaster because I didn’t cook it all the way through.

    If I plan a meal and include a bread, roll, or biscuit…it usually ends up being burned. I want to coordinate my meal to be finished at the same time, then I end up forgetting about the bread because I was trying to get the other items finished.

    soon after my husband and i were married i wanted to show off my cooking skills and decided to make glazed casrrots, the recipe said the sauce would turn brown as it carmelized, i didnt realize i had burnt the sauce until my husband took his first bite his expression said it all to this day he still does not want to try carmalized carrots

  52. Tamara B. says:

    I would lke to try their Chicken Parmesan. When I first got married I wanted to make veal parmesan for our first Valentine’s Day together. Well I over cooked the veal culets, then thought I could just cover it up when I put the marinara over them and topped with cheese covered the dish with tin foil and baked for about thirty minutes. Well I had the oven to high so when I pulled out the dish and uncovered it the cheese and sauce were dried up (lol) boy what a mess but I can cook up some mean veal parmasen today 🙂

    A few Thanksgivings ago, we had put the frozen turkey on a high shelf in the garage to thaw. We had a big dog that slept in the garage at night, but we were sure he couldn’t reach the turkey. Come
    Thanksgiving morning, we go to get the turkey and there was nothing left except scraps of plastic and pieces of bone!! The BIG dog had eaten it! We ended up eating side dishes for Thanksgiving! lol! 😉

    It was supposed to be BBQ meatloaf, but I was an inexperienced cook and didn’t realize there was a misprint in the recipe (the ratio of vinegar to other ingredients was way out of whack). And to make it worse, I tried the recipe again thinking I had messed it up!

    When we first got married I decided to make my husband some chili. So I got a recipe and bought all the ingredients. It cost quite a bit. He saw me looking for the recipe. He saw me buy everything. He watched me prepare and cook the chili. Not once did he tell me that he hated everything I was putting in it. I only figured it out after 5 days of it being in the fridge untouched and him being “just not hungry”. I ended up throwing it away. Now he makes the chili 🙂

    My worst dinner disaster was the year we had an ice storm and had no power for Christmas. Since we had a well, that meant we couldn’t use water or flush toilets either. Christmas Eve, we went to the mall JUST to use their bathrooms! I couldn’t cook our big, traditional Christmas Eve dinner because I couldn’t use the oven, stove, or microwave, so we had cold cuts on paper plates!! That was so depressing!

    A couple of years ago my mother gave me a pressure cooker as a gift.
    We had invited several friends for dinner and I decided that it would be the perfect time to use my new pressure cooker. So in went my meat vegetables and seasonings. I put the lid on tightly and let my meal cook for several hours.
    As everyone was arriving my husband was entertaining everyone in the livingroom. I had an antique deep dish platter that I was going to pour our dinner into that would make a gorgeous display of our meal and had went into the kitchen to remove it from the pressure cooker to the platter.
    As I reached to grab the pressure cooker the weight blew off and my dinner started blowing through the top. It covered the stove, cabinets, ceiling, floor and me.
    Fortunately we all have a great sense of humor or otherwise I would have been mortified to walk into the livingroom with meat and vegetables in my hair to tell everyone that we were all going out for dinner.

    I have never used that pressure cooker again. Or lived that dinner down.

  251. When I lived in New Hampshire I was trying to cook healthier (before there were tasty options) and the pizza place knew us so well that when the girls called they would say- your mom tried to cook healthy again, didn’t she? Want your usual. (Does many disasters count? lol)

    The Crown Roast was coming out of the oven, and it fell on the floor. Aarrgh!

    I am very fond of heating frozen dinners in the microwave. Hard to believe one can mess up there, right? Well hit the keypad to cook for 6 minutes and add an extra 0 accidentally, and you end up with a charred dinner after you realize it’s been an awfully long time without the microwave telling me dinner was done! Fortunately there’s always more frozen dinners in the freezer so I just cooked another, and was very careful setting the cooking time!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    So many disaster dinners-worst one….recently, cooking Thanksgiving turkey for my students and I cooked the turkey so long it was like rubber. You couldn’t chew it. We ended up having sushi for our Thanksgiving meal.

    I tried to make a dish with tofu in it, and the tofu was so rubbery when I was done cooking it that we totally couldn’t eat it!! mopugmoments at gmail dot com

    Thanks for the giveaway…our otherwise well behaved Labrador Retriever has, on occasion, absconded with a cooked pork chop, steak, chicken breast, etc. from the kitchen before we have had a chance to get it on the dinner table…and usually at the most inopportune times !

  265. You mean like the time I was making tuna casserole, realized I was out of tuna and used sardines instead? Bad idea. Don’t try this at home.
    Thanks for the contest.

  268. My worst dinner disaster is when the oven went out on Thanksgiving and I had a half cooked turkey in it.

  269. My worst dinner disaster was when I added salt to an already salty dish and the entire meal was inedible.
