I enjoy cooking for my family, but during the summer it’s hot and who wants to slave in a hot kitchen. So, during these months you have to get really creative with preparing meals. You definitely want the meals to be fast, healthy, simple, and most of all delicious!

My family and I love seasoned baked chicken. However, in the summertime, I really don’t feel like cranking up the oven. Here’s where Stouffer’s Seasoning Wraps come into play. You’ll get tasty perfectly seasoned chicken right on top of the stove in less time.

How the Wraps Work

I have always been a fan of Stouffer’s products since I was a kid growing up. My mother would occasionally buy one of their family meals for a day when she wanted a break from cooking. They were very good! As I grew older, I still rely on them for meal ideas. Stouffer’s sent me over some of their wraps for me to try with my family. They even sent some of their Sauce Duos, but I’ll talk about them in another post.

The Stouffer’s Seasoning Wraps are great for those super hot days when you don’t want to cook but want to put something amazing on the table for your family to enjoy. You can’t go wrong with these at all. They come in a variety of flavors too. Also, you have a family of four you’re good to go, as four seasoning wraps come in each package.

To use the wraps, you will need a package of boneless chicken breast, that has been flattened (I just cut mine in half down the middle). Then you’ll take one piece of the chicken, place it inside the wrap ( I used Roasted Tomato Herb and Italian Countryside Herb) and fold the wrap over. You will repeat this step for all of the chicken breast. Note: Be gentle with handling the seasoning wrap so your seasonings won’t fly off your wrap.

Next, you want to preheat your pan and place your chicken in the pan. The instructions say that you don’t need any cooking oil, but I feel that you would need just a touch of oil to keep it from burning the drippings in the pan. You could also use a non-stick pan as well. You’ll cook your chicken about 20-25 minutes or until done to your liking.

The kitchen smelled so good while these were cooking.

The finished product is a flavorful mouthwatering chicken breast that’s sure to please.  No need to worry about heavy cleaning with these, clean up was easy as 1-2-3.

My family and I really enjoyed the seasoning wraps from Stouffer’s. I do recommend that you try the Stouffer’s Seasoning Wraps out for yourself. You can find them at your local Walmart. If you have already tried them, tell me your thoughts in the comments. I’d love to hear how you liked them.

As you know I enjoy cooking. Cooking allows me to express my creativity, while being able to control the ingredients that go into my dishes. I’m sure many of you are like myself and want to make sure you know what goes into your foods. This is why it is so important to get back to cooking or take up a few classes if you don’t know how to cook.
I was in the market for a few new appliances and pans to add to my collection of tools in my kitchen. I needed a new fryer, baking dish and a good non-stick pan. When I got the chance to try the Copper Chef square pan, I was blown away! This pan combined everything I was looking for into one convenient unit. 
The Copper Chef Square Pan is simply beautiful! It has a good weight to it, but it’s not to heavy. You can do so much with this pan. I was sent the 13 piece set. It comes with the unit, a glass lid, fry basket, steamer/roast rack, cooking utensils (not pictured), inspiration cookbook and user manual.

I have been cooking away in this pan. It cooks to absolute perfection! The pan has cerami-tech non-stick technology that allows nothing to stick to the pan. It has a stainless steel induction plate at the bottom for even heat distribution. The unit is safe for all cooking surfaces and is oven safe.

I must say, each dish turned out wonderful, cooked beautifully! I was truly amazed at the cooking power of this pan. My whole family and I adore it! Cleaning the pan is easy as pie too. Just hand wash it or pop it in the dishwasher. That’s it!

I browned the chicken on all sides. Then I set it aside to work on my vegetables.


I browned my vegetables here. I even browned the gizzards. Then placed the chicken on top and baked it uncovered for 2 hours.
