Recipe Inspirations Giveaway

>> Saturday, June 05, 2010

How many of you are in a hurry when you cook or don't take advantage of adding spices to your meal? Tired of making bland chicken or wishing the porkchops had better flavor? Well, McCormick has done it again! They found a way to successfully combine convenient cooking with bold flavors.

Recipe Inspirations are recipe cards that come with six pre-measured spice packets to make cooking a little faster. They provide the spices. You provide the protein and veggies. I had my box sent a few weeks ago (I love their marketing!!) but haven't had a chance to cook anything. Either I'm too tired from work or too busy on my day off.

I'm so glad I finally got around to trying one of their recipes - Spanish Chicken Skillet. Being half Italian and broke, all I eat is pasta. Pasta at work, pasta for dinner, leftover pasta for a snack. I need a dinner that had very little carbs. This Spanish Chicken Skillet is pan-fried chicken served with spicy bell peppers and tomatoes. It's amazing how spices can make or break a dish. Without this recipe, I probably would've made the chicken with salt, pepper, and breadcrumbs. Maybe some thyme or basil thrown in. Here, the chicken is coated with flour, paprika, minced garlic, thyme, and black pepper. No breadcrumbs are necessary. Crushed red pepper is added to the veggies. If you really hate spice, you can leave that out.

This dinner is definitely a keeper! I can't wait to try the other 5 recipes. The porkchops will be interesting bc I hate porkchops. Mainly bc they are usually dry and bland. Hopefully McCormick will change my mind!

To celebrate the launch of Recipe Inspirations, McCormick is offering a "Wednesday Night Dinner" prize package - Recipe Inspirations samples, $50 GC to Crate and Barrel, and a one-year subscription for Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine. To win this wonderful prize package, please leave one comment below answering the following question: What family meal do you enjoy making? Deadline for comments is June 12 at 11:59 PM EST. US residents only.

Roast chicken and potatoes is my favorite easy meal to make for the fam. Love McCormicks! Their southwest marinade is my all time favorite marinade.
