Chicken, again? When it comes to the challenge of adding flavor and flair to everyday cooking, success is one part inspiration and one part "what's in the cupboard?" That's where Kikkoman comes to the rescue!
These days, Kikkoman Soy Sauce is a staple in American kitchens — as essential as ketchup, mustard, salt and pepper. Don't forget to keep your Kikkoman Soy Sauce handy — right next to the salt and pepper shakers on your family's dinner table! By itself or as a flavor component with other ingredients (say, blended with Dijon mustard for a glaze that kicks basic grilled chicken breasts up a few flavor points) it's a must-have. And remember, Kikkoman offers a less sodium version, too. In fact, you can use regular or low-sodium soy sauce instead of salt — as a condiment or in some of your favorite recipes — from meat loaf to spaghetti sauce.
You get the idea, naturally brewed Kikkoman Soy Sauce is a cooking staple in the best-stocked kitchens.
Of course, Kikkoman is more than soy sauce. Kikkoman Ponzu, a piquant soy sauce-lemon blend transforms simple broiled or grilled fish and is a delight splashed over noodles with steamed vegetables and cilantro. Pre-measured, ready-to-go Kikkoman Seasoning Mixes offer a super quick and simple way to add flavor to your everyday cooking. With seven easy-to-store flavor options (the mixes are packaged in slim envelopes that don't take up a lot of space), from Stir-Fry seasoning to Teriyaki and a marvelous Marinade Mix they can help you create out-of-the ordinary meals in minutes.
In addition to stocking up on a variety of Kikkoman seasonings and condiments to add pizzazz to everyday cooking, you can also add inspiration with a well-organized pantry. When you know what you have available and can see it all clearly, the question of "what's for dinner?" gets answered quickly! Here are some easy and inexpensive fixes for jumbled shelves:
Separate foods into categories and give them their own place on the shelf — pastas and rice varieties in clear plastic or glass containers on one shelf and spices and condiments on another.
Alphabetize your spices on a rack or arrange them on a "lazy Susan" so you can find what you need, when you need it. Be sure to store spices away from the steam and heat of the stovetop and away from direct sunlight to maintain the best quality and shelf life. The same goes for oils, such as olive, walnut and vegetable as well as a selection of flavorful vinegars, including rice vinegar, sherry vinegar and red wine vinegar.
With an array of flavorful seasonings and staples on hand courtesy of Kikkoman, you're half-way to a great meal. Every day.
