I was given complimentary products for testing/tasting purposes by Zatarain'sbut all opinions are my own.

Zatarain's automatically brings to mind New Orleans, so to set the mood for a fun and delicious New Orleans meal, a Saints table setting was in order!

Zatarains has been a New Orleans tradition since 1889.  We're all familiar with their jambalaya, gumbo, and dirty rice mixes.  Those have been a staple in my pantry for years.  Recently, Zatarain's began offering a new line of mixes which are sure to become favorites of your family as well. 

The new Garden District Kitchen Brown Rice and Bean Mixes pays tribute to New Orleans' Italian heritage by combining rich, nutty Parmesan, garlic, and black pepper with whole grain brown rice, white beans, and kale. 

Zatarain's provided a recipe to try with this product which adds white meat chicken and spinach which resulted in a VERY easy and fast meal.  Perfect for busy weeknights when you need a healthy dinner on the table in a hurry. As an added bonus, everything cooks in one skillet so cleanup was no problem.

1 T. butter
1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into thin strips
1 package Zatarain's Parmesan Garlic Brown Rice with White Beans
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup baby spinach leaves

Melt butter in medium skillet on medium-high heat.  Add chicken, cook and stir 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.  Remove from skillet and set aside.

Stir Rice Mix and water into skillet.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minutes or until rice is tender and most of the water is absorbed.

Return chicken to skillet and stir in spinach.  Cover.  Remove from heat.  Let stand 5 minutes.  Garnish with grated Parmesan, if desired.

My opinion?  This product lives up to Zatarain's reputation for quality and flavor.  It was very easy to prepare and delivered big time on taste.  I like that the new products include brown rice and white beans.   I believe the new products will become family favorites.
