My Hubby Rescued Dinner with Barber Foods! #BarberDads

Per special request from Barber Foods, this is my husband’s very first guest post here at Experimental Mommy! Enjoy!

Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody…

When the Beatles penned these lyrics in 1965, I’m pretty sure they weren’t looking for help around the house. However, when my wife called earlier this week—and essentially said the same thing, her message to me was loud and clear, “You have to go cook dinner.” Although I live in the part of the country known for its excellent cooks: Emeril Lagasse, John Besh, and Paul Prudhomme, yours truly would never make this list. So I had a choice to make, fast food or cook something. Although I believed fast food to be the easier option, I was feeling adventurous and decided I would cook.

Upon opening my freezer, I found that we had 2 boxes of Barber Foods Stuffed Chicken Breasts. Well, here goes nothing, I thought.

  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Check.
  • Step 2: Remove chicken breasts from pouch and place on a cooking sheet. Check.
  • Step 3: Bake in a preheated oven for at least 35 minutes (until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees). Wow, 3 steps—that’s it. Maybe fast food wasn’t the easier option, after all.

I have to admit, a 3 step approach to a dinner entrée was very appealing, but it was nowhere near as appealing as the taste. The stuffed chicken breasts were delicious (so good in fact, that my 2 very picky daughters asked for seconds). They were very juicy with an excellent taste– a real complement to the creamed potatoes and salad that I made.

Barber Foods defiantly saved dinner that night, and even earned me a little respect in the kitchen. I plan on fixing many more of the over 20 options that Barber has available. Who knows, after a few more meals like this one, maybe I’ll volunteer to handle Thanksgiving dinner (that is, of course, if Barber Foods offers turkey entrees).
