Bzz Agent Review: Lawry's products

I belong to a group called Bzz Agents. Occasionally they send me things to try for free, in exchange for my opinions and sharing those opinions with other people. They recently sent me some Lawry's products to try, and I was pretty excited.

I got a small container of seasoned salt (I have a big container in my cupboard already - love the stuff), a red Lawry's grilling apron (not pictured, but my husband uses it), a bunch of coupons, and two marinades.

Since I already know and love the seasoned salt, I was especially excited to try the marinades. I love marinades because they're quick, easy, and require almost no thought.

So far I've only tried the Lawry's Original Seasoned Salt marinade. I used it on boneless chicken breast this week, which I baked. You only have to marinade it for 30 minutes, according to the bottle, but I always do mine overnight.

It was delicious! I was worried it might be overly salty, given that seasoned salt is part of its name. However, it wasn't too salty at all. It even had some sweetness to it, and I thought it was the perfect blend of sweet and salty, especially for meat.

I used about half the bottle on two chicken breasts, but I always manually turn my meat when its marinating. If you don't want to have to do anything at all (like flipping the meat), you could use the whole bottle and have it completely cover the meat on the top. I can't wait to try it on beef next time!

Once I try the Balsamic Herb variety, I'll be sure to let you know what I think.

My sister knew about these a long time before I did, and she loves them, too. When I mentioned them to her, she told me that she buys them all the time. Her family loves them, too.

Have you tried them? Do you have a favorite flavor or meat combination?
