School has been back in session for about a month and I'm finally back into the groove of cooking meals after a long day at work. While I love making homemade meals I don't mind finding quality products that can help make it easier for me to put a great meal on the table. That's why I am loving McCormick® ONE Recipe Mixes which are made with McCormick® Spices.
McCormick® ONE Recipe Mixes are single use seasonings that can help me to prepare dinner in one pan which makes for easy prep and easy clean up! I was excited to find that my local Martin's had several different packets of these seasoning mixes. They were on sale this week too so I picked up four different flavors figuring they would be great for when I needed to make a quick and easy weeknight meal without any artificial flavors or MSG.
The McCormick® ONE Seasoning Mixes I chose were Creamy Chicken Skillet, Chicken Parmesan Sheet Pan, Farmer’s Market Chicken Sheet Pan, and Bourbon Pork Tenderloin. As soon as I got home from the market I started planning for which one I could use for dinner this week. The Chicken Parmesan Sheet Pan won because I'm a sucker for anything with chicken and cheese!
Instead of just making the typical Chicken Parmesan I wanted to do a little twist on the classic recipe to include some major vegetables in this dish. I made Sheet Pan Chicken Parmesan Stuffed Zucchini which took me 15 minutes to prep and 20 minutes in the oven. Since the hands on time was only about 20 minutes that made this a winning dish. I don't know about you but I really like making sheet pan suppers. I simply line a sheet pan with foil, put the meat and veggies on top, and bake. Then when it's finished baking I can just take the foil off the sheet pan and give it a quick wash and I'm finished. In this case I grabbed the chicken, rubbed it lightly with oil, and coated it with the McCormick® ONE Sheet Pan Chicken Parmesan Seasoning. It smelled really tasty and I was looking forward to trying it.
Then I hollowed out the zucchini. I've found the easiest way to do this is to cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Then I take a paring knife and cut a rectangle in the zucchini leaving about ¼ inch around the edges. Using a teaspoon I scoop out the middle of the zucchini leaving a "boat" to fill with the chicken parmesan mixture. I put the zucchini boats on the sheet pan along with the chicken and drizzled them with oil then put the pan in the oven.
Fifteen minutes later I pulled the chicken out of the oven and cut it into one inch pieces. I put the chicken in the zucchini boats, poured marinara sauce over top, then sprinkled them with mozzarella cheese. They went back into the oven for just a few minutes and then dinner was ready! I served mine with a side of garlic bread because it was easy to cook along side the Sheet Pan Chicken Parmesan Stuffed Zucchini Boats.
The resulting dish was flavorful and delicious! The zucchini was tender but firm so it held up to the hearty filling. The chicken tasted of basil, oregano, and parmesan and was perfectly seasoned. The sauce added a hearty feeling to the dish and the gooey cheese made the meal complete. We really enjoyed this meal and it would be great to make for company because it's easy to make, has little clean up, and it looks like it took a lot of time and effort to make it. I'll be putting this one on my weeknight meal rotation list for sure!
