There is honestly nothing more satisfying than a home-cooked meal after a long day. More often than not, though, it’s the last thing I feel like doing. More work after work…no thanks. But, the last time I was in the food store, I came across something promising an awesome, quick, and easy week-night meal. Too good to be true?
Campbell’s Skillet Sauces are little pouches of prepared sauces in a multitude of flavors. The selling point is simple… make an awesome weeknight dinner in just 15 minutes. You brown the meat, add the sauce of your choice, and serve over the coordinating starch.
Choose from some awesome flavor profiles:
- Marsala with mushrooms and garlic
- Creamy Chipotle with roasted corn and black beans
- Fire Roasted Tomato with red bell peppers and chiles
- Scampi with white wine and garlic
- Thai Green Curry with lemongrass and basil
- Toasted Sesame with garlic and ginger

I love Thai food, so I reached for the Thai Green Curry. Surprisingly, the ingredients (for the most part) are actual food products. There’s only a few things that seem chemical-like…maltodextrin and a few processed concentrates. To me, saving the time by having a factory make this of rme is worth a few less-than-pure additives.
All I needed to buy for this was the protein…chicken. The only other ingredient you need is some oil to brown the chicken in. Making this really is stupid-simple. Brown chicken in oil, add sauce, and let it go for 5 minutes. Stupid. Simple.
I threw some Ready Rice in the microwave for 90 seconds and served the sauce-coated chicken over the bed of rice.
The flavor was amazing and the chicken stayed so moist and juicy. It was incredibly filling and satisfying.
The only thing the suggested serving was missing was some veggies. Next time, I’ll grab one of those frozen stir fry veggie medleys that include traditional Thai ingredients like carrot, beans, broccoli, baby corn, and bamboo shoots. If you start cooking them right as you start the instructions for the Skillet Sauce, they’ll be done in time to add them to the sauce right before serving… gotta keep it under 15 minutes.
I got my Skillet Sauce for $2. I was even able to find this $1 off coupon for all you savvy shoppers.
I would try each of these, if I were you. It really lives up to exactly what it claims…make an awesome weeknight dinner in just 15 minutes. So, next time you’ve had a tough day, do yourself a favor… skip the drive through and cook up a home-cooked meal…with a little help from Campbell’s.
