My Name Is Snickerdoodle: So Simple


So Simple

I received a super fun package in the mail last week.  
I'm a big fan of Progresso so 
I was really excited for this to come.  
I will only buy Progresso soup 
(Creamy Tomato Basil is our favorite) 
and their stocks are great as well! 

This package had neither of those, 
but included some of their brand new/just on the shelves  
Five to be exact (Creamy Roasted Garlic, Creamy Parmesan Basil, Fire Roasted Tomato, Creamy Portabella Mushroom and Creamy Three Cheese), a super sturdy wooden spoon and a little booklet full of recipes for each Recipe Starters Cooking Sauce. 

 I absolutely love the pull back tab revealing a super simple recipe!  

 Each recipe literally takes minutes to prepare.  Um...hello!  Love!

So, of course I had to try some of them out and share it with you!
Creamy Lemon Chicken From Progresso Recipe Starters Cooking Sauce
Serves 4
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can (18 oz) Progresso Recipe Starters Creamy Roasted Garlic with Chicken Stock cooking sauce
3 TBSP freshly squeezed lemon juice
lemon zest from one lemon (optional)
parsley flakes (optional)

Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/2 inch thick. In small shallow dish, mix flour with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; dip each chicken breast into flour mixture, coating all sides.

In 10-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken breasts in oil 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, or until brown. In small bowl, mix cooking sauce and lemon juice.

Pour sauce mixture over chicken. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 to 10 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Sprinkle with parsley and lemon peel. Serve with rice.

*Ian and I loved this, luuuuuuuhhhved this dish.  HIGHLY recommend making it!

Then I made a chicken parmesan sandwich using their 
Fire Roasted sauce and slapped it on garlic bread!  
My oh my!  
I'll leave you hanging on that picture and share the 
recipe with you in the future!  

Has anyone seen these in the stores and tried them out yet? 

Even though Progresso compensated me with product, my opinions are all my own. 


  1. I picked up the garlic starter just this last weekend. I'm thinking it would make a pretty great chicken pot pie or some sort of chicken and pasta yumminess. Can't wait to try it out!

  2. So, I was in the store today...with no list, and remembered this post. I got the Portabella and made the Strongman...we all loved it, and the kids cleaned their plates. Thank you!

  3. Auto correct on google now? Stroganoff....not strongman!
