Win Free ProSticks Grilled Chicken Breast on a Stick

Mediterranean, Sweet Sriracha or Chipotle: Which ProSticks™ Chicken Skewer flavor would you pick?

Thank you to Expresco for providing five (5) coupons for the online random drawing.

I love discovering new products, so I’m excited to share information about ProSticks by Expresco. They’re grilled chicken breast on a stick, and come in three flavors: Sweet Sriracha, Mediterranean, and Chipotle. Each ProSticks product has/is:

  • 23 grams of protein per serving
  • Fully cooked and ready to eat
  • Real grill marks
  • No preservatives

You’ve probably noticed there has been an explosion of high-protein on the go snack products. Some of those products include nuts or cheese. But ProSticks is all about the chicken breast skewer. So not only is it a convenient protein-packed snack, it’s also a convenient meal component for quick protein-rich lunch or dinner.

For example, any of these ProSticks grilled chicken breast flavors would be great chopped up with a quick-cooking brown rice for a high-protein meal option.  Or diced with some tomato, lettuce and cheese wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla wrap. The convenient meal options are only limited by what’s in your pantry.

Enter below to win a coupon for one (1) free ProSticks Grilled Chicken Skewers product (up to $3.99 value). Online random drawing ends September 23, and winners will be notified with redemption instructions. Good luck!

Chipotle Chocolate Brownies

chipotle chocolate brownies

Like some heat in your chocolate? The smoky chipotle chiles and earthy unsweetened cocoa powder add a depth and richness to this chipotle chocolate brownies recipe. On a 4-alarm rating scale, I’d give this a 2-alarm rating for heat. If you’d like to go full tilt, double the amount of ground chipotle powder to 2 teaspoons. Or if you want to dial it down, just substitute any chipotle powder you remove with additional ground cinnamon for balance.

Chipotle Chocolate Brownies

Preheat your oven to 325° F.  Lightly grease the bottom of a 13×9-inch baking pan with butter or shortening, and set aside.

In a small saucepan, combine the dark chocolate and butter. Stir constantly over very low heat until completely melted and smooth. Cool slightly. In a small bowl, combine the flour and cocoa powder; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, espresso coffee powder, cinnamon and chipotle powder. Add in the chocolate mixture. Beat with a mixer on medium speed for about 1 minute. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Mix in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture, a half cup at a time, beating on low speed just until combined.

Spread the brownie batter in the prepared baking pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until edges start to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely, about 1 hour, on a wire rack.

Dust with unsweetened cocoa powder and cut into 8 rows by 4 rows to make 32 brownies.
