To get everything I needed to whip up my Chinese-inspired stir fry for dinner, I headed over to my local Walmart! They carry the McCormick All Purpose Blends right in the seasoning department, they were super easy to find! Along with the McCormick Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Pepper & Garlic All Purpose Seasoning, there are other varieties including McCormick Basil, Oregano, Garlic & Sea Salt All Purpose Seasoning, McCormick Crushed Red Pepper, Oregano & Garlic All Purpose Seasoning, McCormick Garlic, Herb, Black Pepper & Sea Salt All Purpose Seasoning, and McCormick Garlic, Onion, Black Pepper & Sea Salt All Purpose Seasoning! I can’t wait to try out all of the other varieties too!

Helpful Hints

If you are making rice or noodles to go with the meal, start that before the sauce or chicken! I was going to fire up the rice cooker to make rice to go with it, I had everything ready to go in it and…. I forgot to turn it on and we ended up waiting on the rice to finish since it took a few more minutes than the chicken.  Don’t forget to factor that in to your planning!

Thanks to McCormick Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Pepper & Garlic All Purpose Seasoning, it was so easy to make and so delicious! I know I will be experimenting with loads of different varieties of stir fry now!

I also really enjoyed the asparagus paired with the chicken, the sauce complemented the asparagus incredibly well and I was quite pleasantly surprised! It was probably the best asparagus I have ever had! It just absorbed the flavor so wonderfully!
