On the Go Recipes with Lawry's

Making delicious and healthy meals that are easy for on the go families are a challenge at best.  Lawry's (a staple product in our household) recently asked a few of us to get together and come up with new, healthy recipes for on the go using their products.  For me it was easy because I absolutely love (and have since I was a kid) many of the Lawry's products.  Working moms frequently have the challenge of eating healthy is difficult, but one of my favorite tricks was to make a salad the night before so I have something healthy for lunch the next day.  Coming up with those easy and delicious salads takes some planning but pays off.
RockinMama and I created a fantastic super healthy salad that would work as a main course one night and can be put in a container for lunch the next day.

2 lbs. of boneless chicken breast.
1 cup of Lawry’s Ginger Sesame Marinade.
1- pack of your favorite fresh Green Salad
1- fruit cup of Mandarin Oranges
Whole Baby tomatoes to taste
Slivered Almonds to taste
1/4 cup of Sesame Ginger Salad Dressing
Shredded Carrots to taste

In a resealable plastic bag, marinated chicken in Lawry’s Ginger Sesame Marinade in the refrigerator for 30 mins (if you have time, I highly recommend letting it marinate over night for even more flavor). Then cook on grill (or on a countertop grill if you are in a hurry).  Once cooked, slice chicken into cubes and add to fresh greens.  Top with mandarin orange slices, whole baby tomatoes, shredded carrots, slivered almonds and top with your favorite Sesame Ginger Salad Dressing.

DayTrippingMom and ThoughtsofaMommy came up with this fantastic twist on Mexican Potato salad.

5 lbs. of Potatoes
1 package of Chorizo, cooked and drain from oil
1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped (separated some for toppings)
10 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 finely chopped onion
1/2 cup of mayo
Lawry’s Seasoned Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Peel and chop (into small sized cubes) potatoes and boil in water for about 15 mins. I added a teaspoon of Lawry’s Seasoned salt to add a tiny bit of flavor. Once boiled, drain and place potatoes to cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour. In a mixing bowl, combine cooled potatoes, mayo, eggs, cilantro, chorizo, onions and mix till all ingredients are well mixed. Add Lawry’s Seasoned Salt to taste.

LosAngelesStory and MommyofaMonster came up with sliders.  Below is LosAngelesStory's recipe using the Lawry's Terriyaki Marinade.

Ingredients:* 1 pound lean ground beef
* 1/2 cup Lawry’s Teriyaki Marinade With Pineapple Juice, divided
* 1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
* 4 pineapple slices
* Lettuce leaves (as needed)
* 10 mini hamburger rolls, toasted


1. Mix ground beef, 1/4 cup of the marinade and red bell pepper in medium bowl until well blended. Shape into 10 rounded slider patties.
2. Broil or grill over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes per side or until sliders are cooked through (internal temperature reaches 160°F). Meanwhile, broil or grill pineapple slices 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Brush sliders and pineapple slices with remaining 1/4 cup marinade while cooking.
3. Serve sliders on toasted rolls with pineapple slices and lettuce leaves.
