As I’ve said before, I am mostly a scratch cook. I enjoy cooking most of the time. But one night a week, usually Monday or another night if I have a meeting, I give myself a break from making a completely from scratch meal, and I treat myself to a delicious and easy Barber Foods stuffed chicken breast instead.
I discovered Barber Foods stuffed chicken breast probably 15 years ago. I went to a wedding, and the entree was a delicious Chicken Cordon Bleu, a rolled breaded chicken breast filled with ham and a cheesy sauce. Afterwards, I saw Barber Foods Chicken Cordon Bleu in the freezer case of my local supermarket.
I tried it, and loved it. Since then, I alternate between Chicken Cordon Bleu and Chicken stuffed with Broccoli and Cheese. And I’m serious about my once a week obsession because I buy the big size with 6 chicken breasts!
Recently, I had a chance to help spread the word about Barber Foods stuffed chicken breasts via the social media and blogging group, BzzzAgent. Barber Foods is a brand that I honestly believe in and have purchased for more than a decade, so I’m happy to introduce it to you. Barber Foods treated me to the regular size package (2 breasts). I decided this would be a great opportunity to try a new flavor since they have several options. I chose Chicken with Creme Brie and Apple.
Barber Foods chicken is a cinch to make. Just open the individually wrapped chicken breast and pop it into a 375 degree oven for 35 minutes.
I usually put the frozen chicken breast on a piece of aluminum foil for easy clean up.
What’s great about this easy meal is that I can do other things while the chicken is in the oven. For instance, the night I made the Chicken with Creme Brie and Apple, I had a meeting to go to. While the chicken and the baked potato were baking in the oven, I was able to maximize my time by taking a shower, changing my clothes and freshening up my makeup.
I actually like the fact that Barber stuffed chicken breasts cook in the oven. Not only do they taste waaaaaaaaaay better than a frozen entree and almost like homemade, they give me time to do something else during that half hour of baking.
When I came back downstairs to the kitchen after about 25 minutes, I used the final 10 minutes to roast some kale in the oven (I know, I’m one of those weirdos that adores kale), and sauté some baby bella mushrooms with olive oil, butter and Vermouth on top of the stove.
I’d say it was a pretty luxurious dinner for a night when I was on the run! That night I paired the meal with lemonade because I was going to be driving, but truth be told, I often pour myself a glass of wine to accompany my usual choice of Chicken Cordon Bleu or Broccoli and Chesse!
So how did I like my new choice? The Chicken with Creme Brie and Apple is a more sophisticated flavor than the Broccoli and Cheese or even the Chicken Cordon Bleu IMHO. The combination of brie, apple, cranberry and other cheese stuffing has an intriguing edginess that I think would appeal to adults more than to children. I enjoyed it as a change of pace from my usual choices.
Barber Foods Stuffed Chicken Breast comes in the following flavors: Cordon Bleu, Broccoli & Cheese, Crème Brie & Apple, Kiev, Seasoned Homestyle Stuffing, Loaded Baked Potato, Scallop & Lobster Stuffing, Chicken Parmesan and Asparagus & Cheese. I think the asparagus and cheese will be next on my list to try!
