  • In my quest to eat healthier, I’ve been upping my protein intake. Chicken is a great source of protein, yet has also been a challenge for me to cook. For some reason, I always seem to cook it too long or too short, resulting in dry or raw chicken. *sigh* Fortunately, Tyson has come up with a solution for the chicken-challenged with their Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets and Chicken Breast Strips.

    Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillet

    Each bag of Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets contains six servings of pre-cooked, lean, boneless, skinless chicken breasts (although I think I got lucky because my bag had seven fillets.) It was nice to see that each fillet is individually frozen. That means you can take out the number of fillets that you need for any given night without having to thaw a whole clump of chicken to peel of the number of breasts you want. From my meal assembly days, it looks like each breast is about 3-4 oz., but that’s just a guess. You can see from the photo below that each fillet has nice grill marks which suggest that the flavor has already been cooked into the chicken. I have never been able to get grill marks that look that good.

    Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillet

    I decided to cook up a Sesame Ginger Chicken using the breast fillets – it seemed easy enough and since it included cooking the chicken in the microwave, that means it could be fast. Unfortunately, I forgot to pick-up the microwaveable rice, so that meant my entire meal got delayed while I was waiting for the rice to cook. But the actual preparation of the chicken was fast. I mixed all the ingredients to created the sesame ginger sauce and poured it over the frozen, un-thawed breast fillets. Then I microwaved at 60% power for 3.5 minutes per the microwave instructions on the bag. The end result:

    Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillet

    I was amazed at how moist and tender the chicken breast was. I think the slow cooking really makes a difference, plus having it cook in the sauce really helped the chicken absorb the flavor. A note about the recipe – even after some sugar, I found the chicken to be more on the sour side, which was probably from the rice vinegar. Next time around I’ll probably add sugar, reduce the vinegar, and maybe add a little bit of corn starch to thicken up the sauce so it sticks to the chicken more.

    Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast FilletsAnother great use for the Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets is for chicken Caesar salads. During these hot summer months, sometimes a salad really just hits the spot with the cool, crisp lettuce. And Caesar salads are so easy – lettuce, Parmesan, croutons, dressings, and using the Tyson Grilled & Ready chicken, you can add the chicken in just a matter of minutes. I made up a salad for dinner by cooking the fillets as directed, slicing them into strips and then placing them on top of the salad. If you’re feeling like something hot, then you can also slice up the breast (or use the Chicken Breast Strips) to quickly make some quesadillas! Mmm.

    Ultimately, Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets can make mealtime so much easier by helping you save time. To get a perfectly cooked piece of chicken to add to your meal, you simply heat it up in the microwave for a few minutes, resulting in moist, lightly seasoned chicken. (I do recommend adding your own seasoning to the chicken.) Even better, the chicken is 98% fat free and has no preservatives.

    Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets are available in grocery stores nation-wide. I stopped by the local Giant to pick up the Tyson Grilled & Ready Whole Breast Fillets. I’m not sure if it’s only the stores around me, but Giant carries the Whole Breast Fillets and Safeway carries the Chicken Breast strips. They were easy to spot in their bright green bag amidst all the other red-bagged frozen chicken pieces.
