Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinners with Campbell’s Skillet Sauces

I love to cook, but most weeknights I don’t have time to cook like I used to before the kids. These days I’m pretty busy, and I’m always going, going, going. My days are filled with work, lots of writing, and running all over Los Angeles to get the kids to school, practice and play dates. My evenings are filled with helping with homework, laundry, cleaning, more writing, football and basketball games and family time. At the end of the day, the last thing I want to do is stand in front of the stove cooking.

On these nights I prefer a quick and easy recipe that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. I have some go to meals that are quick and easy like lasagna, enchiladas and tacos, but those even require some prep work. Thanks to Campbell’s it is possible to make meals without actually working too hard for them.

Campbell's Skillet Sauces

Campbell’s Skillet Sauces provide a quick and easy way to prepare a meal without resorting to frozen dinners. In about 15 minutes your meal can be made in 3 easy steps, and there isn’t a laundry list of special ingredients.

There are 6 varieties available:

  • Creamy Chipotle with Roasted Corn & Black Beans
  • Marsala with Mushrooms & Garlic
  • Thai Green Curry with Lemongrass & Basil
  • Toasted Sesame with Garlic & Ginger
  • Fire Roasted Tomato with Red Bell Peppers & Chiles
  • Scampi with White Wine & Garlic

My husband took the kids to a movie yesterday, so I decided to try the Marsala with Mushrooms & Garlic for dinner. I used chicken and pasta, but the sauces can be made with any protein, starch or vegetable you like. While the penne pasta was cooking I added oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Then I added the chicken until thoroughly cooked, stirred in the Marsala with Mushrooms & Garlic sauce and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

Campbell's Marsala with Mushrooms and Garlic Dinner Sauce

My husband was pretty skeptical about a meal that would be ready in only 15 minutes. He didn’t think it would taste good, but was pleasantly surprised with the taste. He was also happy that it wasn’t rich or salty. A lot of canned and pouched products have a salty taste, and this was not the case with the Marsala with Mushrooms & Garlic sauce. I’m usually not a fan of mushrooms, but I barely noticed them in the sauce. My only complaint is that it isn’t enough sauce for a pound of meat or for 4 servings, like the packaging says. It’s perfect for a 1/2 pound of meat and two servings though.

I love how quick this pasta dinner was to pull together. It took me only 30 minutes to prepare and cook dinner. That includes the time it took to clean and cut up the chicken breast. This is perfect for nights when you want a delicious meal without all the work. We really enjoyed our dinner, and can’t wait to try the other varieties.

Skillet Sauces are available at grocery stores nationwide alongside boxed dinner kits, marinades, sauces, gravy or broth. You can find more information about Campbell’s Skillet Sauces on Facebook and Twitter.

  2. That looks really good. I would imagine the Thai Green Curry with Lemongrass & Basil would be pretty tasty too.

  3. Thank you for the heads-up on the serving size. I’ve found that to be true on most convenience foods. I’m glad it tasted good and was easy to make.

  4. This is the first time I have heard of these. I am not great at making sauces yet so these would be really helpful! :)

  9. Sounds like a time saver, when it comes to sauces that are pre made, my only curiosity would be the ingredients, in our family i try to stay away from GMO products that is the only reason why i make it from scratch.

    Oooo, I’d love to try the Thai Green Curry sauce. It has my favorite flavor, Lemongrass. I’m definitely going to look for these. Thanks!

  14. These look delicious and it’s a trusted brand. I would like to try the Scampi with White Wine and Garlic. I would probably have it over rice. I like a lot of sauce so I would probably have to use 2 packets.
