King Ranch Chicken Casserole

I was recently asked to try the New and Improved PAM® formula. PAM is a product I use all the time and wondered how the new formula would compare.

It can be so frustrating to work on making a delicious dish only to have it stick to the pan. Not only does make it hard to serve, but you also loose some of the meal to the pan and end up having to soak and scrub for clean up.

PAM’s new formula is designed to prevent food from sticking on your dishes and make clean up a breeze. The New and Improved PAM® formula has been shown to be 70% better at attacking baked-on food vs. bargain cooking sprays.

As a food blogger, I need every meal be picture-perfect. Plus, I would love to have more time to enjoy my food and spend less time soaking, scrubbing, and cleaning in the kitchen. So, I picked a gooey, cheesy, stick-to-the-pan casserole to put the new formula to the test.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole

I made a King Ranch Chicken Casserole. This consists of layers of corn tortillas, creamy chicken mixture, and cheese (the ultimate baked on culprit). Armed with the new PAM, I went into battle.

The casserole itself was a family pleaser, and the new PAM left me a winner with hardly any clean up. There was no need for soaking or scrubbing. There was no casserole left sticking to the pan. In fact, there was hardly anything left in the pan. Put your toughest recipes to the test and watch as PAM comes to the rescue!

No matter what meal you’re cooking, PAM helps you pull it off. Even better. BlogHer and PAM have provided a $100 gift card giveaway plus coupons for the New and Improved PAM Cooking Spray and Hunt’s Tomatoes for one lucky reader (see rules below).
