I hate when I’m rushed to make dinner. I also hate when I have to make dinner and I really don’t feel like making dinner. I have a solution that fixes both of those problems. Because what I love is when dinner is easy, cheap, healthy and delicious.
I discovered McCormick Skillet Sauces through Ibotta. You can read all about my new Ibotta obsession here but the abridged version is, if you like earning cash rebates on the groceries (and many other items!) you buy, then you will love Ibotta. I strongly, highly recommend it.
The first week I tried Ibotta, the McCormick Skillet Sauces were one of the offered rebates. I thought it sounded like a great idea, and the sauces are labeled gluten free, so I was excited about that. I chose the Sesame Stir Fry sauce because stir fry is usually a four star meal (meaning all four of our family members will eat it) in our house. And, bonus points, the Skillet Sauce was inexpensive, even before I got the rebate!
Sticking with my inexpensive theme, I decide to pair the sauce with the most economical cut of chicken known to man (or at least to me), the chicken thigh. I love chicken thighs. They have way more flavor than the breast and they are far less expensive. Someone is going to catch on to this eventually and start jacking up the price of the chicken thighs. And, no stir fry is complete without some fresh veggies and I decided on broccoli and grape tomatoes. Tomatoes are one of the staples that Ibotta offers a rebate for and you can use it on any brand or type of tomato. Pretty cool.
Chicken Stir Fry with McCormick Skillet Sauce
1lb Boneless Chicken Thighs
2 c Chopped Broccoli
2 c Grape Tomatoes
2 Packets Boil in Bag Rice
1 Packet of McCormick Skillet Sauce – Sesame Stir Fry Flavor
2 T Olive Oil
- Cut chicken thighs into strips or bite size pieces
- Heat olive oil on the stove in a large skillet
- Add chicken thighs to the hot olive oil. Cook until browned on one side, then flip and brown the other side
- Add vegetables to the skillet. Allow to cook and soften for 2-3 minutes
- Add skillet sauce and bring to a boil.
- Lower heat and allow to simmer for 2-4 minutes.
- Serve over white rice
This comes together really quickly, maybe 20 minutes, or so, depending on whether or not you have to chop your broccoli. The sauce is really very good. I loved the Sesame Stir Fry so much that I haven’t ventured out to any of the other flavors yet, but I really want to. These skillet sauces are definitely my new staple!
