Review: McCormick has added more flavors to its Bag'nSeason line. The premise is simple: Pick up the envelope in the spice aisle, buy the meat and vegetables, take it all home, toss in the bag and cook. You have a complete dinner in about 30 to 45 minutes. The Chicken Oriental has heavy five-spice overtones. The Chicken Italian Herb was more flavorful. Basil and garlic enliven a sweet sauce rendered from the stewed tomatoes you put in the bag. I also added some zucchini with great results.
