Samples received. All opinions are my own.

Many flavors
As a working mom, I get home right at supper time. The last thing I want to do is cook a huge meal.

McCormick sent me a variety of their skillet sauces to try out… they say they are fast and easy so I was going to put them to the test.

Smoky Applewood BBQ Chicken with Bacon
I wanted to try the McCormick Smoky Applewood BBQ Chicken with Bacon first. We are big chicken fans in our house and I’m always open to new ways to cook my chicken to make new flavors and tastes.

Cooking the chicken
I started out with some oil in the frying pan, added my chicken and onions and seared the chicken for about 5 min each side.

Then I turned down the heat and added the skillet sauce and let it simmer until the chicken was done cooking.

My husband walked in the house from work as it was cooking and the first words were “Man something smells good”. The amazing aroma that your house is filled with will make anyone hungry the moment they walk into the house.

Fast Yummy Meal
Chicken was cooked and it was the moment of truth, the kid test. Will the kids like it?

They sat down and started to eat, and eat, and eat… only stopping to ask for some more sauce on their chicken.

It was a hit with the whole family!

Finished everything
We normally eat supper around 5:30 so to not start supper until 5:15 was a stretch for me. We still sat down to eat at 6:00.

Thanks to McCormick I was able to make a fast meal that tastes like it took hours to make.

I will definitely be keeping my pantry stocked with more McCormick skillet sauces!

Head over to and get stocked up for those nights you just need some help with supper.

    OMG ~ that chicken looks so good I can almost smell it!! I love McCormick! I use their gravy mixes all the time. But I haven’t seen these yet. But you can bet I will look for them. I am going to be dieting and chicken will be the only meat on my menu so these will fit in perfectly! Thanks for the heads up.

  2. These sound easy and really good. I am always looking for something new to serve — the same old, same old gets so boring!

    That chicken looks super delicious. I have not tried the McCormick skillet sauces yet but will have to try them out. Looks like they have good variety to choose from.

    This is a very easy way to make Barbecue chicken. I am going to Walmart today and getting the barbecue sauce and Sloppy Joe mixes and trying these out. I am always looking for easy ways to make dinner!

  7. These skillet sauces look like a great way to bring a meal together and easy enough to make any night of the week. Definitely sounds like a win.

    I have to say I skip right past sauces in the grocery aisle, not paying attention. Boy, have I been missing out. I can’t wait to try these! They could make any hum drum meal into something exciting!
