** This giveaway is currently CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS to our Red Gold Tomatoes Sampler Pack Giveaway winner: Tim L. (comment #10)! **
I know we were! We have a few go-to meals that are quick and easy to make. But after a while, dinner begins to feel tired, predictable, and boring. That’s how things were at our house when Red Gold Tomatoes contacted What’s Doing? Tampa Bay about reviewing their products and offering our readers a great giveaway.
My husband is the cook in our house, so I handed him the Red Gold Tomatoes Sampler Pack, asked him to find a Red Gold Tomatoes recipe, and give it a try out on us. This is what he made us for dinner:
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup flour
Salt and pepper to taste
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 (14.5 oz.) can Red Gold STEWED TOMATOES
4 green onions, chopped
1 cup cooked orzo pasta
• Into a pie plate, pour 1/2 cup broth. Place the flour, salt and black pepper in a gallon plastic bag. Dip chicken breasts into broth and then place in bag. Seal and shake to coat all pieces with flour. Add oil to a large skillet and heat. Add chicken and cook on medium-high heat until both sides of chicken are golden brown. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
• Add any remaining flour to skillet; cook and stir until brown. Slowly add 1/4 cup chicken broth; cook until thickened. Gradually stir in remaining broth; continue to cook and stir until slightly thickened.
• Add Red Gold STEWED TOMATOES and green onions to skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Add pasta to sauce and stir. Return chicken to the skillet and simmer until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
(In case you’re wondering, this recipe was printed on the Red Gold STEWED TOMATOES can label.)
So, What Did Everyone Think of Dinner?
Every now and then my husband or I will come across a new recipe, and we’ll decide to give it a try … often to mixed reactions. But this time, it was unanimous … we all loved it!
— My husband: “This is really good! I’d definitely make this again. I think we have a winner.”
— Our 4-year-old daughter: “Mmmm! This chicken is yummy!”
— Me: “Yum!” The Red Gold Stewed Tomatoes smelled so fresh in the can that I knew this was going to be good! Here’s what I liked best:
— This meal was ready to eat in 30 minutes
— Because my husband cooks, I do the clean-up. Being that the recipe used only the skillet, it took no time to get the dishes done.
— All three of us enjoyed it, and my daughter asked for seconds! In my book, that’s a winner!
