Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets: Review & Giveaway

***Closed: Congrats to barbara.montyj & Jessilyn82***

With summer here, it seems like I should I have so much more time to get dinner ready in the evenings. I mean, there's no school, no soccer. It seems like I have all the time in the world to get dinner together. And yet, 5 o'clock rolls around and I often find myself staring at the pantry thinking about what I can get on the table in under 20 minutes.

This is where Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets come in. Pre-cooked, I can pop them in a skillet or the microwave and have them ready in minutes. I can easily add them to pasta, stir-fry, or salad. I can also just serve them as is or add a little spice to them.
Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets are 98% fat free and do not contain preservatives. The Tyson Grilled & Ready line is available in the freezer section of most grocery stores, although my small town store has yet to pick them up. Other varieties included in the line are:
  • Chicken Breast Strips
  • Fajita Chicken Breast Strips
  • Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast
  • Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips
  • Seasoned Beef Strips
We added our chicken breasts to pasta and veggies one night, for a simple and quick dinner. It was both filling and satisfying. Another night, we tossed the pre-cooked chicken onto a baking sheet to serve with bread sticks and oven fries.

I really like how quickly the chicken can be ready to serve and how versatile the plain breasts can be. Plus, I am incredibly picky about meat, and had no complaints about the taste or texture.

Buy It: You can buy Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets in the freezer section

Win It: One lucky reader will get to try the Grilled & Ready Fillets for free!

To enter: Tell me your favorite way to serve chicken. A pasta dish? Grilled? A casserole?

My favorite chicken recipe is chicken pockets.
Marinate the chicken, grill or cook in a pan. Mix with cream cheese and whatever veggies you want. They get a tube of crescent rolls, unroll and seperate into 4 squares. Put your filling in the middle of each square, wrap it up in the crescent roll and bake!

SWEET AND SOUR CHICKEN

Michelle Rose said...

I love to make grilled chicken parmesan. It's a little healthier than making it will the breaded chicken cutlets and makes me feel a little less guilty about all the cheese I put on top :)

One of my favorite chicken recipes is something I had at a restaurant called "Chicken Elizabeth". It's flattened boneless chicken breasts, stuffed with chopped spinach and gouda cheese, then topped with a white sauce. It is awesome!

I serve it mainly when I make mexican food like in tortillas or tacos.
