One pan meals have saved me this summer. I mean they are pretty amazing because you don’t have to heat up your house with the oven. BUT they are so quick and easy and on the dinner table in 30 minutes. It feels so much better when I make a delicious meal for my kids even though we are so busy. It is amazing what you can create with common ingredients and incredible spices.

I recently discovered McCormick’s new Herb Grinders and I am o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d. They contain larger herb pieces that are gently dried that lock in the fresh herb flavor that are released upon grinding. They are perfect for getting the fresh herb taste without having to chop anything!

The Italian Seasoning was just what this Creamy Tomato Parmesan Sauce needed. The sauce was a delicious twist on the classic tomato sauce and made it ultra rich and creamy. The chicken simmers in the sauce and gets topped with freshly shredded parmesan cheese. Its gets nice and melty…

The thing that I love the most about the new Herb Grinders is that they also make a nice garnish for serving your meal and add extra flavor. A few twists on the top of your food right before serving and you are good to go!

We all know and love McCormick for their high quality herbs and spices and you guys are going to love these new Herb Grinders just as much as I do! They also have other favorites that I love using in the kitchen like Basil, Oregano, and Parsley. And you better believe I am fully stocked and ready to use them!

I promise that you guys are going to love this delicious 30 minute meal! From the creaminess of the sauce to the tender and juicy chicken topped with melty parmesan cheese. We loved it served over some pasta and it became a favorite with the very first bite!

    Very much enjoyed making this dish and eating it too. Simple to make, be careful to stick to the ratios in the recipe as it is spot on and you can overdue the cream. A little goes a long way. I made it for my 19 yr old son and he loved it. Simple and delicious.

  2. I pounded the chicken breasts out so they would cook faster, I also seansoned them with salt, pepper, Italian seansoning, garlic powder and onion powder. I used tomato sauce that had basil and garlic in it as well. Oh.. I used the entire wedge of parm… approx 1.5 cups-ish. It was soooo good and came together so quick. Can’t wait to make again!

    Made this today. Wasn’t floored with how the chicken came out. BUT. we all enjoyed the sauce. Tastes more like a Vodka sauce. Made it fun with elbow macaroni. Already in my recipe book! Thanks!
