Y’all know I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive ways to get a home-cooked meal on the table for my family.  So, when I was in Walmart last week, I saw these new McCormick Skillet Sauces over in the section with the packaged mixes and gravies, I knew I had to try them.  There were seven different varieties, so being the lover of new products that I am, I went home with about 5 different ones.  They all seem very easy to put together and only call for a couple ingredients.

Late Sunday evening, I was searching for something easy for supper when I remember the sauces in the pantry.  Knowing what ingredients I had on hand, I decided to give the Sicilian Chicken sauce a try.  The recipe calls for chicken breasts, olive oil, sliced mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, and of course the sauce.  I added some fresh green beans and some fettuccine to the menu and dinner was ready in less than 30 minutes!



I’ll admit I’ve tried a few of these pre-packaged kinds of time-saving sauces, but have never really been impressed.  In fact, I’ve never bought any of the ones I tried again.  But this one was different.  It was super easy to make and my family and I really enjoyed the tangy tomato flavor and the basil was the perfect complement.  In fact, they’ve already asked when we’ll be trying the Sesame Chicken Stir Fry version!

    May I have the nutritional information please for the McCormick Sicilian Simmer Sauce?

    • Hi Glenna – You’ll need to check out the McCormick website for that info. Good luck!

      • Unfortunately it appears McCormick doesn’t make the Sicilian Simmer Sauce any longer. Is the Italian Chicken with Basil and Garlic the same thing with a different name? I love the Sicilian Sauce. My wife had previously purchased all the Sicilian Simmer Sauce our local grocer had on hand and they never restocked.
