“As a busy mom of a very busy family, I know how challenging it can be to prepare family-favorite wintertime meals without spending hours in the kitchen,” said
Available frozen, refrigerated or shelf-stable and in a variety of flavors and seasonings, Tyson(R) Fully Cooked Chicken and Steak Strips can go right into favorite wintertime recipes, like Chicken Cacciatore and Chicken Parmesan Casserole, helping to dramatically cut down on preparation time. And because they are not breaded and are an excellent source of lean protein, they can be a key tool when combined with other strategies and seasonal ingredients to create lighter versions of favorite dishes that also go light on the pocketbook.
Following are just a few of
- Bank a Batch: Stock items in your freezer or refrigerator “bank” to withdraw as necessary to help you during the busiest of days. When you’re making a dish, cook double the servings and stash the rest in your freezer or fridge for another day. When you’re starved for time and you’re family is just starved, you can pull out your dinner of choice, pop it in the microwave and put a quick and delicious dish on the table.
- Swap This for That: Ease your mind about the meals you serve to your family by swapping out unhealthy ingredients for lighter, better-for-you options. When making a classic dish like a Chicken Parmesan Casserole, swap out regular cheese and pasta sauce for part skim mozzarella and low-sodium marinara sauce. Use lean, non-breaded Tyson(R) Fully Cooked Grilled Chicken Breast Strips, and put the entire meal over a bed of whole-wheat pasta versus regular spaghetti. Not only will you be serving a lighter, more nutritious meal, but it will still taste like the classic dish your family has grown to love!
- Stick to the List: Create and stick to a detailed grocery list that will make your shopping trip more efficient and help you avoid impulse purchases. Divide your list into organized sections (e.g., pantry items and snack foods, fruits and veggies, frozen items, etc.) and check off each item as it goes in your cart. Try sticking to only what’s on your list to help keep your grocery bill low, but don’t let it prevent you from trying new food items that may help you save time in the kitchen.
“Generations of families have looked to the Tyson brand for high-quality chicken and beef, and it’s increasingly important that our protein options can be prepared quickly and easily by today’s busy families,” said
