What a week! It was no different than any other week, really, and I’m sure most of you can relate… making breakfast, preparing lunches, running kids to and from school. While the kids are at school, you’re cleaning house, doing laundry, running errands, working (in or out of the home) and after school you’re a taxi service to and from all the extracurricular activities.

If you’re like me by dinner time you’re exhausted and don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen preparing dinner. Not to mention, if you have soccer practice, dance class, or a football game to attend, you’re running short on time, too.

 

It’s nice that I can stop by Walmart, get everything I need and be in and out of the store in under 15 minutes, and even better than that,  within 10 minutes after I’m home, I can have a delicious, easy, healthy, protein packed dinner on the table for my family.

We love salads. One of my favorites is a grilled chicken salad with Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Fajita Chicken Strips. It’s full of fresh fruits and salad greens. So light and hearty at the same time.

The flavors of the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Fajita Chicken Strips combined with the strawberries, mandarin oranges, cherry cranberries, pecans, red onion, and bleu cheese crumbles is…. beautiful. You can add whatever your favorite fruit is, too. We like to substitute blueberries for the strawberries and I bet pineapple would be a great substitute for the mandarin oranges. I’ll give that a try next time.

Honestly, I can eat this without a salad dressing, but just add your favorite balsamic vinaigrette and I’m sure it will be perfect.

Tyson® sure makes it easy for me to provide my family a quick, easy, healthy meal. Every day should be this effortless!

Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Fajita Chicken Strips are the perfect addition to any chicken recipe. They make this busy mom’s life easier. 

How would you use Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Fajita Chicken Strips in a recipe to make your life easier?
