I made this quick dinner sauté last week and it couldn’t have come at a better time.  I was busy with my regular everyday responsibilities, I had committed to a lot of blog posts and the deadlines were looming and I was also taking care of two young children in addition to my own daughter.  Multi-tasking is not one of my talents, so let’s just say that I was a bit overwhelmed last week!

When the time came to prepare this meal using the Land O’ Lakes Lemon Pepper Sauté Express®, I was spent.  But, that actually made me the perfect test subject.  This product is made for quick and easy meals for us crazy busy moms and dads!

I was impressed.  I have made my own flavored butter and it tastes great.  But homemade flavored butter requires some extra time and preparation.  Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® includes butter and olive oil, perfect for sautéing.  If , like me, you don’t like surprises . . . be aware that the Lemon Pepper flavor is not bright yellow as I was expecting.  It is more the color of the pepper and it is very peppy!

You can find the Sauté Express® products in the dairy aisle.  There are five flavors to choose from: Savory Butter & Olive Oil, Italian Herb, Garlic & Herb, Teriyaki and Lemon Pepper.

This Lemon Pepper Sauté Starter is easy.  Just unwrap, drop into the pan and move on to the chicken and veggies!

First thing’s first, start cooking the rice because that takes the longest.  You can also substitute the rice for something quicker like {my favorite} quinoa!  Or noodles would taste great with this as well.

Prep and chop the chicken and veggies.  I used asparagus and crookneck squash, but feel free to use your favorite vegetables.  After adding one Sauté Starter start cooking up those veggies.

Transfer vegetables to a bowl and add another Sauté Starter to the pan.  Then get the chicken started.  Once the chicken is fully cooked, add the veggies back to the pan.  Turn off burner and allow veggies and chicken to cook for one more minute.  Serve with rice and Enjoy!
