I recently tried the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken and it was so good!  It was easy to heat up, full of flavor, and totally juicy, which surprised as it was frozen chicken!  I heated our Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken in a pan on the stove and it heated up quickly and was gone within minutes.


What do I love about Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken?  First, they are fully cooked, so all I have to do is heat them up.  You can find them in your grocery store in the frozen and refrigerated sections.  I found mine on the end cap in the frozen section at Vons.  Second, they are conveniently packaged in resealable bags, so I don’t have to worry about transferring them to another bag to stick bag in the freezer.  Simply open it, use what you want, seal it back up, and stick it in the freezer.  You can create delicious and smart meals in minutes with Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken!  Third, Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken is all white meat, fully cooked, 98% fat free, and has no preservatives.


In our family, 2013 is the year that we are looking to eat more nutritious, yet still have delicious tasting meals!  Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken have the right ingredients in order to stay on track with a healthy eating routine.  With Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets and Strips, it’s easy to get tender, juicy chicken without all of the prep work.  I especially love that!  I mean, I can easily add on 30 to 45 minutes just in cooking and preparing the chicken for casseroles or other dishes I make.  So, having it already made gives me more time I can spend with my family, rather than standing over the stove.
