Trying to think of different meals to prepare is the bane of my life, Ian’s always so indecisive and will rarely give me a straight answer what he wants to eat so when I saw these packets I thought I’d give them a try.
Philadelphia Simply Stir come in 3 varieties, mushroom, garlic and herb and peppercorn, the latter I didn’t know about till I checked the website as my supermarket only had the two choices. But even better they were on offer so a bargain.
I’ve got a freezer full of chicken breasts so that was the ideal choice to use with the Philadelphia Simply Stir, Ian decided when he got in from work we’d have the garlic and herb sauce.
It’s so simple to prepare, so here goes.
Take 2-3 chicken breasts and cook gently in a pan, once cooked pour over the sauce and heat through for about 2 minutes and you’ve got a tasty meal.
I served ours with sauted ribbon carrots & cabbage and mashed potatoes.
I love doing veggies this way as it seems to keep the flavour, they are so easy, for the carrots peel them initially & then just use the peeler to make long strips.
The cabbage, I just slice thinly, pop them both in a pan with a small knob of butter and season with salt and pepper. I keep them on low, tossing them constantly (well every minute or so) for about 10mins till they are nicely cooked, but not over done.
The carrots also help to brighten the plate up and the whole meal tasted really nice. The sauce is thick and has a slight sharpness to it, which complements the chicken perfectly.
Check out the scrummy recipes you can make with the Philadelphia Simply Stir here. I quite fancy tracking down the peppercorn sauce as the creamy peppercorn sausage and bacon dish looks gorgeous.
I mentioned my chicken before and that I have a freezer full, well that’s because we get all our meat from Westin Gourmet and they have some great offers on, they differ week by week. We’ve got loads of amazing steaks alongside the chicken. We’ve been buying from them for a couple of years now and if you click the picture* below you can check them out.
I wasn’t asked to post this, I just wanted to share our yummy dinner with you. Let me know if you try the Philadelphia Simply Stir sauces yourself and what you think.
