Thanks all for reading my blog and entering my giveaways!
================================================
As a mom of three I'm always busy. I love to cook from scratch but that's not always possible with all the sports, washing, cleaning,... etc. I'm always looking for ways to make dinner easy and fast BUT still very tasty.
This is where Lawry's comes in.
I received a Lawry's "Complete Meal Ideas" gift pack that includes all 4 of the new Lawry's seasoning mix varieties with a marinating dish.
  • Asian Style Beef & Broccoli
This easy to prepare stir fry meal will remind your family of their favorite Asian restaurant. The dish combines beef, broccoli and seasonings with a hint of garlic. Serve it over rice for a complete, satisfying meal.
  • Chimichurri Burrito Casserole
Lawry’s gives the Burrito casserole a new twist with this traditional Latin American sauce. With a few simple fresh ingredients, mealtime just got a lot more exciting.
  • Meditterranean Sundried Tomato & Garlic chicken
Add a taste of the Mediterranean to your family’s casserole. This easy to bake casserole combines chicken, pasta, tomatoes and Feta cheese for a flavorful meal any night of the week.
  • Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic & Basil
This effortless version of a restaurant favorite comes together on your stovetop with just a few fresh ingredients. Flavorful garlic and basil gives this meal its own Tuscan flair, perfect for serving over pasta or rice.

We tried the Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil and all I can say is WOW. I ended up buying another packet as 1 packet is for 4 people and we're with 5.
This recipe is super easy to make, all we needed to get was chicken and mushrooms. And we substituted half of the needed water with marsala wine. We ate this chicken on top of basmati rice and it was a great hit with my kids too!
The gift pack came with a Pyrex glass dish with lid. We had a potluck with the swimming team last weekend and I always struggle to get my dishes to parties. I end up wrapping the glass baking dishes with tinfoil but that doesn't always work out real good. Cause this Pyrex glass marinating/baking dish (it's big) has a plastic lid, we could transport our dish without any problems!

LAWRY'S® TUSCAN STYLE CHICKEN MARSALA

Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound thinly sliced boneless skinless chicken breast halves

1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

1 1/4 cups water

1 package Lawry's® Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil

Directions

1. Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Remove from skillet. Add mushrooms to skillet; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender.

2. Stir in water and Seasoning Mix. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 1 minute or until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally. Return chicken to skillet.

3. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until chicken is heated through. Serve with cooked pasta or rice, if desired.

Variation: For thicker chicken breast halves, increase cook time in Step 1 to 5 minutes per side.

Creamy Chicken Marsala: Prepare as directed, using 1 1/2 cups milk in place of the water.


My kids asked if we could try the Chimichurri Burrito Casserole next and this is what we'll make this Saturday. I can't wait to try it.
