Review: Lawry's Southwest Chicken Skillet

Lawry's has been a trusted name in American kitchens for over 70 years. My mom seasoned EVERYTHING with Lawry's Seasoned Salt when I was a kid, so it's no surprise that you can find it in my cupboard too!


Lawry's makes dinner fast and easy with their inspired seasoning packets. Last night I tried the Southwest Chicken Skillet , well actually I made a Southwest Tofu Skillet, but it was delicious!

Here's Lawry's Easy recipe:

Southwest Chicken Skillet 

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 20 min

1 tablespoon oil
1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless breast tenders
1 packet of Lawry's Southwest Chicken Skillet Seasoning Mix
1 can (15 oz) black beans (drained)
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes (undrained)
1 can (15.25 oz) whole kernel corn
1 cup instant white rice
1 cup water
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium high. Add chicken, cook and stir for 5 minutes or until lightly brown. Stir in seasoning mix, beans, tomatoes, corn, rice, and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese and let stand until cheese is melted.

Here's my version:

Southwest Tofu Skillet

1 tablespoon oil
1 packet of Extra Firm Tofu
1 packet of Lawry's Southwest Chicken Skillet Seasoning Mix
1 can (15 oz) black beans (drained)
2 large firm tomatoes (diced)
1 1/2 cups of frozen Fire Roasted Corn Kernels

1 cup of cooked brown rice
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
Garnish with corn chips, green onions and cilantro (optional)

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium high. Add tofu, cook and stir for 5 minutes. Stir in seasoning mix, beans, tomatoes, corn, and rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese and let stand until cheese is melted.


My family LOVED this!  It was simple and easy to make and the flavor was spectacular. It was both delicious and filling.  Only a few ingredients, very little preparation, and presto! Dinner is served.


If you haven't checked out Lawry's seasoning mixes, you're missing out!  Who said you couldn't make fast delicious meals for your family??  Did I mention that these little handy seasoning mixes retail for under $1.50? Just because you're on a budget does not mean that you can't eat well.

For this and other mouthwatering recipes visit Lawrys.com, check out their Facebook page. You can also download the free Lawry's Dinner Bell app to your cellular phone (Android phones only).
