McCormick's marinade in a bag

We were recently approached by http://www.marketmaker.com.au/ with free samples of McCormick’s new product – Marinade in a bag.  Each Chopping Board member was generously provided with 6 bags of different flavoured marinade, marinating trays and a gift card.

I love marinating meat.  Preparation is fun, but usually time consuming.  So when I looked at these packs, I knew exactly what they were for – busy days/nights when you don’t have time.  Each bag advertises it can hold 1kg of meat/vegetables.   The zip/resealable lock is very handy, but a bit difficult to open at first. 
The first 2 marinade bags I tried were Honey and Soy, and Sticky BBQ, and I followed their serving suggestion using Chicken Drumsticks with the Soy, pork and beef ribs with the Sticky BBQ.

1kg of Chicken drumsticks fit perfectly in the bag, while I had more trouble with the ribs... the sharp bones tore the bag and I was left with marinade everywhere.... word of warning, if you have ribs, use an alternative/2nd bag or pour the marinade out.

After 6 hours, I removed the meat from the bags and placed them in the bbq trays and wacked them into the oven.  After just a few minutes, my house was smelling like a bbq house.... the aromas were making everyone hungry. 

Turning the meat a few times, and after about an hour in the oven, it was ready to be served.  We had 4 adults around the table and the 2kgs of meat was polished off very quickly.  It was definitely a very quick, easy and tasty meal.

Since then, I've tried the 4 different flavours with different types of meat, including chicken wings, chicken breast and thigh fillets, however this first night with the Honey and Soy drumsticks and ribs in the Sticky BBQ sauce was the best combinations.

Highly recommended for people who love to eat marinated meats, but may not have the time to prepare.
