As a busy mum I’m always looking for shortcuts in the kitchen to make dinners a little easier, a little yummier & of course a little more nutritious.
My family loves a good BBQ, but I really don’t like the clean up of all the marinade containers, not only are they often messy to clean up they take up so much room in the fridge.
When the lovely team at McCormicks contacted me asking if my family would like to review their new Marinade in a Bag I was uncertain, but as I had seen them in the supermarket thought ‘why not’. But as I handed the lovely parcel to The Farmer he was very excited- BBQ’s are after all his thing!
He unpacked the box & then had to decide on what we were having. I had purchased chicken drumsticks the night before so he put effort into picking the most appropriate marinade for the job.
Once he had chosen the “Honey & Soy” he carefully read the instructions, and then placed the chicken directly into the bag. No mess or containers to deal with.
He sealed the bag, gave it a little massage & popped it into the fridge to do its thing.
The pack recommends 2-24hours of marinating time. We gave it overnight, to cook I poured the chicken into a roasting pan & popped it into the oven for 30 minutes. The result was beautifully flavoured drumsticks that the whole family loved.
I was thrilled, no clean up, no massaging raw meat & no need to have a fridge full of containers. I note that although the pan above looks like the marinade burned, it didn’t, and the pan easily wiped clean.
We will certainly be purchasing these again!
The team at McCormicks want to give you the chance to try these brilliant Marinades in a bag too, so we have a little competition to be won. This is a fast & furious comp so share the link, enter & of course leave a comment!
