One of the things I’m working on this year is to ensure that I’m eating healthier. Part of that diet is to eat enough protein during the day. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner all need to have protein, and I’ve been drinking protein shakes to boot. One excellent source of protein is chicken, and Tyson has some great chicken options. Last year, we had the chance to review Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breasts. This past month, we’ve been able to try out another product from the Tyson Grilled & Ready family – their frozen Chicken Breast Strips.

Tyson® Grilled & Ready Frozen and Refrigerated Chicken Fillets and Strips make it easy to add variety to party appetizers or dinner. They’re everything you love about fresh chicken ready in half the time.
When it comes to convenience, you can’t get much easier than Tyson Grilled & Ready Frozen Chicken Strips. They arrive fully cooked so all you need to do is to heat them up – either stove top or in the microwave. What I discovered this time was how flexible they could be used in your dishes.
The most straightforward way to use the Tyson Grilled & Ready Frozen Chicken Strips is on a salad, which I did. Here you can see how the strips look in the pan, followed by how delicious they are on top of my salad.
But these convenient chicken strips can be use for just more than a salad topper. You can cook them up with your pasta as a meaty addition to the meal. One night, I decided to live on the edge a little bit and made a BBQ chicken sandwich with them.
First, I put some Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips into a small pan. I then poured/squeezed out some BBQ sauce into the pan, making sure that each piece of chicken had a nice coating of BBQ sauce. Then I just followed the cooking instructions, just heating the strips over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Throw the chicken on a bun, serve with some beans, and you have an awesome BBQ chicken sandwich cooked in just a few minutes.
Then, another night, when I was running REALLY low on food, I took the chicken strips, heated them up in the microwave for a few minutes, dipped them in butter, then coated them with Italian herb breadcrumbs. After breading, I baked them in the oven at 350 for about five minutes and served them with spaghetti sauce. It was delicious. I think next time, I’ll probably dip the strips in egg instead of butter, but as I said, I was low on food and didn’t have any eggs. The finished strips were very tasty. They were moist and juicy even after being nuked and then baked. This is an easy way to make some tasty appetizers for a party or as fun finger food for the kids.
For someone who is working to add protein into their meals, without adding extra fat or calories, the Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken products are such a great option. One serving of the Grilled & Ready chicken breast strips is just 100 calories and provides 21g of protein. Tyson Grilled & Ready Frozen Chicken strips also have no preservatives. They’re carved from real chicken breast fillets – no mystery chicken mush here. When you cut the chicken strips or bite into the chicken, you can tell that you’re biting into real meat.
