Knorr Smiley360 Mission

I am so glad that I was selected to try Knorr Homestyle stock for one of my Smiley360 missions. I wasn't sure what to expect as I am use to either making my own stock from scratch or using canned stock for my recipes. As the days went by and I still hadn't received my product to try I got a little worried, but just as I was about to write and find out if it had been sent out, it was delivered to my door. First of all I couldn't wait to open my package and see what was inside.
As you can see I got a 4 pack of the Knorr Chicken Homestyle Stock, a ladle, recipe card book, and three 2.00/1 Knorr Homestyle Stock coupons. I still have not priced the Knorr Homestyle Stock so I am not sure how much of a deal it would be if they were used. A few days had gone by since I have received my free samples and today seemed like a great day to try out a new recipe using the Knorr Chicken Homestyle Stock. There were a few recipes given in the booklet they sent, so I scanned them to see which one I had the ingredients for and settled on the Lemon Chicken Primavera recipe. The only substitution I made was for the asparagus. I didn't have fresh so I used frozen. Here you can see all of the ingredients needed to pull off the recipe.
I also used a McCormick whole black peppercorn grinder for the pepper but I am sure you could use what ever you have on hand, and since we don't have regular pepper this had to do. Once I had all of the ingredients set up, I just had to turn on the stove and get it all going. It was quick and easy to make, the only thing left was to let my family be the taste testers. We call our family Marksville and you can find us all over the net by that name as well. I had my daughter set the table, let everyone know that dinner was ready and it was time for the moment of truth. Was this recipe going to be a winner or just another ordinary dinner.
First off I have to say I have never been a fan of anything with Lemon Pepper and stay away from anything asking for it like the plague but I thought at least my husband should like it as he enjoys Lemon Pepper flavored foods. When it was served of course I had to snap the above shot, and then I sat down to give it a try, and I have to say I was really surprised by how good it was. It was a winner with everyone except my 9 year old who doesn't really like anything mixed together but she did eat some rice. Other then that Marksville approves of the recipe and my husband asked if it was made with the stuff  I got in the mail and I told him yes.

Now to talking about the product I received. My free sample of Knorr Chicken Homestyle Stock came in a 4 pack which you can find in most grocery stores at this point. The individual packages are neat because you can use as many as you need for a recipe and you don't have to worry about throwing any away. We had to double our recipe in order to feed our family so I used two of the 4 containers. I thought that the stock would be a liquid but to my surprise it was in a gel like form which was pretty neat. All I did was squeeze the container and out popped the stock no mess, no fuss as my mother would have said. I was also a bit worried that the product would be too salty but again to my surprise it was seasoned just right.

I have to say that I loved cooking with Knorr Homestyle Stock in a new way and was very satisfied with the recipe we chose to try. Thank you Knorr, and thank you Smiley360.
