Saute Express Chicken!…

Posted Dec 21 2012 6:52am

Hi there!  Happy Friday to you!  I guess it’s also Happy End of the World Day?  Today is the last day in the Mayan calendar so some people are convinced the world is going to end today.  I don’t believe it for one second.  I think the world will continue to go on despite what the Mayan calendar may say!  Although, from the way the weather is outside today you might think the world is going to end.  I had a terrible commute into work today.  It was pouring rain and extremely windy!  I could barely see how to drive.  To make things worse, I really feel like I need new tires because my car was skidding across every road.  I felt like I was losing control of the car which is one the most scariest feelings in the entire world!  So scary.  I definitely need to try to save some money to invest in new tires.  If it’s like this driving in rain, I can only imagine how bad it will be once it snows.  So I need to definitely get on top of that before it snows.

What are you doing this weekend?  I know most of you are celebrating Christmas.  I don’t celebrate Christmas so this is just a very long weekend for me.  I’m excited to spend some time relaxing and getting things organized around the house.  I also hope to try out some new recipes and spend time with family and friends.  I also want to get Chinese food on Christmas because last year, I missed out on the tradition due to getting operated on !  Boo!  So I’m hoping to get Chinese this food since I missed out.  I really don’t have very many plans for the weekend so I’m glad to just relax.  I’m hoping to catch up on some sleep too!

I’m happy to say that I got everything together for my supervisors gift yesterday!  He is going to be very happy once he see’s what the team was able to get for him!  I am very pleased with how everything turned out.  I just hope that it stops raining because he takes the train and his gifts are in a huge bag!  I feel bad that he has to carry it all around the train station but it will be worth it once he sees what he has.

Last night for dinner, Mike and I decided to try something new that we bought a little bit ago but never got around to trying.  Land O Lakes came out with a new product called Saute Express .  Saute Express combines butter, olive oil, and a variety of herbs and spices into a square that cooks and flavors chicken, fish or pork.  It comes in four varieties: Garlic & Herb, Lemon Pepper, Italian Herb, and Savory Butter and Olive Oil.

We used the Garlic & Herb.

I forgot to take a picture of what the butter looks like but they are prepackaged squares of the butter and flavoring.  So all you do is add it to the skillet and then put in chicken or whatever protein you are going to cook and let it saute.  Instead of making ours in a skillet, we decided to use the Ninja Cooking System.  This worked out really well for us and cooked the chicken in no time!

While the chicken was cooking, the smell was incredible!  The Garlic and Herb smelled so incredibly good!  I could even imagine using this sauce on pasta!  It smelled that great.  Before we knew it, the chicken was done cooking and dinner was ready.

The best part about this Saute Express packet was the fact that it coated the entire piece of chicken.  It had so much flavor.  The garlic wasn’t overpowering at all.  I know some people don’t like a lot of garlic and you would be perfectly fine with this seasoning.  It’s not strong at all.  I really enjoyed the chicken so much and Mike did as well.  I thought it made seasoning chicken super easy.  It would taste phenomenal on shrimp or any other type of fish too.  I personally don’t eat pork but I’m assuming it would probably taste great on it as well.  I’m so glad that we bought this!

If you are interested, I noticed on the website there is a $1 off coupon that you can print.  If you pair this with a sale you might be able to get this product for free or for a few cents.  That is what happened when we purchased it.  Have you ever tried the new Saute Express?  If you would, which flavor would you try?  I’d like to try the Lemon Pepper and the Italian Herb too.  Oh, keep in mind, if you are using more than 2 pieces of chicken you will want to use two squares of the seasoning.  We made around 4 chicken breasts so we used two squares.  On the packaging, it says one square for two chicken breasts.  So I just doubled it because we were making more than two.

Alrighty, well I hope you have a lovely Friday and I will be back sometime this weekend to check in!  Stay dry!
