It was a jar of sauce. You would cook chicken in a skillet, then add sauce, then serve over rice or noodles. I can't remember the flavors, but there were 3 of them. My dad would cook this for us and I loved it! I really miss these. This may have been a 90's thing, but still worth mentioning.

"I feel like chicken tonight..." I can hear it now. My mom always bought the white kind. Came in a jar. Now that I think of it, that's kind of gross.

The jingle from this is still just as clear in my head as if it were yesterday.

Oh, geez. Like many, I can still hear the jingle and imagine the man (husband) in the commercial walking around the kitchen flapping his elbows like the aforementioned fowl. The jingles back then were so much better, more memorable, I think.

This might have been early-1990s, but could have been late-1980s. I hated the commercial, and most, if not all of them can be found on You Tube. I know that because I got several of them in my e-mail after overhearing me talking about annoying commercials, with "Chicken Tonight" spots near the top of the list.

What happened if you ate it in the morning? Did gremlins come out or something?

It seems like we had this stuff at least once a week growing up. Back then I didn't really like it, but I bet I would now. It was so easy!
Tonto - April 17, 2010 - Report this comment
Oh god. My mother went through a phase where we ate this like four nights a week. Horrible.
