I’m always looking for easy ways to get dinner on the table during the week. Especially with the fatigue from being pregnant I don’t have the energy (or patience!) to spend a long time making dinner after coming home from a long day of work.
So when I heard about these new Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starters, I knew I had to try them and see if they made things as quick and easy as they claimed. I made a quick stop by Walmart on my way home from work and picked up the Garlic & Herb Sauté Express Sauté Starters, along with some chicken and potatoes.
Sauté Express Sauté Starters are seasoned butter & olive oil that make cooking up your favorite dish so easy. All you have to do is melt the little packets and then sauté your food in it and it comes out cooked and full of flavor.
Garlic & Herb Chicken with Smashed Potatoes
1 package Garlic & Herb Sauté Express Sauté Starters
1 lb. uncooked chicken breast tenders
24 oz. baby dutch yellow potatoes
For the chicken
1. In a large skillet, melt two packets of the Garlic & Herb Sauté Express Sauté Starters over medium high heat. Once melted, place chicken in skillet and cook for 5-7. Turn chicken and sauté for another 5 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
For the potatoes
1. Fill a medium sized pot with enough water to submerge the potatoes in. Bring pot to a boil and then add potatoes. Reduce heat to medium high and cook for approximately 10 or until potatoes are fork tender.
2. Drain the potatoes into a colander. Next place the potatoes (be careful as they will be hot), onto a cookies sheet or large work surface. Using the smooth side of a meat tenderizer, smash down each potato.
3. In the same pot you used to cook the potatoes, melt two packets of Garlic & Herb Sauté Express Starters over medium high heat. Place smashed potatoes into pot and cook on each side for 5 minutes.
