My family is always on the move. I feel like I could write an entire book about how busy I am, and how I hardly have time for anything. When it comes to dinner time, we try as hard as we can to make dinners that are not only enjoyable but healthy as well.
Sometimes it’s next to impossible to find something that we can just toss in the microwave or oven, and have it be something that’s not only delicious but also nutritious for our busy family. I’m always looking for something that I can use in place of a home-cooked dinner when time just runs out on me during the day. Between getting the kids to school, working, picking the kids up, homework, after-school activities, and trying to fit in five minutes to catch my breath, it seems nearly impossible to get dinner ready before bedtime even!
One thing that I know is a surefire crowd-pleaser are Tyson® Mini Chicken Sandwiches. They are as easy to cook as they are fun to eat for everyone. They are delicious and made with the hundred percent all white meat chicken. These things are the perfect way to fill up the kids, and add on to a plate of some healthy fruits and veggies!
My daughter has taken an interest lately and how to build muscles after watching Dad sweat it out with some second-hand weights in the garage. This gave us a great opportunity to make health and food a topic at the dinner table. We have made it an important part of our dinner time to find out the function of each thing on our plate. Fruits and vegetables seems pretty easy for her to grasp, but where was she going to get that muscle building protein, she wondered? Well the good news is Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches also have 16 g of protein per serving. That’s more protein then some of your favorite protein bars! When combined with some healthy sides, Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches are the perfect addition to your plate, especially on a busy night where you just don’t have the time to spend hours slaving over the stove.
These sandwiches have quickly become a family favorite as they fill you up without slowing you down. Believe it or not, they are even pretty good for a quick breakfast or lunch on the go. They are perfectly sized for life on the move when we have to take dinner with us to our after school functions and eat in the car, and they are perfectly sized to fit on our dinner plates for nights that we are running behind.
In fact, they’re almost perfect for any night. All you have to do is pop them in the microwave and they are ready in just a few minutes. They are fantastic for that busy night, be it football, music, dance class, soccer, kung-fu class, a night where you’re running behind, or a night where you really could just use a break. I know that I could use one tonight, and my daughter is already looking forward to dinner because of it!
