Easy Dinners with McCormick {A Sponsored Post}

What if I told you dinner could be on the table in about 15 minutes? Think I'm crazy? Are you saying "NO way." Well, I wouldn't lie to you! It's a reality, thanks to my good friends from McCormick and their new line of Skillet Sauces

That's right, a trusted name in our kitchens for years, has recently launched their new Skillet Sauces, now available at your local Walmart.

And in case you are wondering where in your store to find them, start in the baking aisle. I found mine next to the other sauce and gravy mixes.

With 7 varieties to choose from, the possibilities are endless. Plus, each one comes with its own unique and tasty recipe, right on the package. From Sloppy Joe, to Tacos, to Chicken Fajitas, there are so many delicious options to choose from!

So, you might be wondering which one I chose to try. Well, the minute I saw the Smoky Applewood BBQ Chicken I knew it would be coming home with me. But imagine how excited I was when I read the directions, and discovered this one came with slow cooker directions too! Talk about a match made in heaven! Sure, a meal that is ready in 15 minutes in the skillet is hard to beat, but one that can cook in my crock pot while I am busy doing other things is even better in my book! Many of the sauces come with this slow cooker option, so just be sure to read the directions carefully! 

These are a terrific weeknight meal when time is of the essence, or would also be fabulous to feed a crowd! I'm thinking tailgating while you cheer on your favorite team. Or...remember, that holiday rush is just around the corner, and we are all in need of simple meals when family comes to town!

If your dinner plans must include the words "quick, easy and scrumptious", then you need look no further than McCormick's Skillet Sauces for your answer. And be sure to stay up on all the great products they offer by connecting with them on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter

This. is. NOT. BBQ.
No wood, no fire, no smoke.

This is stewed chicken with BBQ seasonings. Could be tasty. I can't speak to that. But I do know it isn't BBQ.

I want to thank you for taking the time to tell me this. And you're right, you can't speak to the flavor...b/c it's delicious, no matter what label you put on it.

Looks delicious! LOVE how quick and easy this is! I need quick weeknight meals with the holidays coming.

I think this looks terrific! One thing about mixes like this is how it takes the pressure off of cooking a delicious meal when there are other things happening and food might be the last thing on your mind. So BBQ or not, I'm sold! But guess what? I'm gonna call it BBQ in MY house!
