Smoky Skillet Chicken and Rice

This post is sponsored by McCormick in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.

I make a lot of skillet dinners. We love all-in-one meals. Sometimes I add rice or pasta. Other times meat and veggies does the trick. No matter what I’m cooking, its the seasoning that makes the meal.
My pantry is full of spices and I’m adding new ones all the time. I love to browse the spice aisle for ideas. McCormick spices and blends always offer great ideas.


I was so excited to give their new skillet sauces a try!


Smoky Applewood BBQ Chicken with Bacon Skillet Sauce has those bits of bacon, garlic, spices and natural applewood smoke already in there. You can use the sauce to whip up a quick and easy weeknight chicken dish with smoky bbq flavor. This sauce goes equally as well with pork or beef and gives baked beans a lift.

Since these sauces come completely seasoned just add your meat and vegetables. Easy BBQ Chicken and Rice skillet dinner ready in a matter of minutes!
