I love food that is yummy, but I also love food that is quick and easy to make.  I think that I’m not the only one who feels this way and that is why Tyson foods has created their line of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken.  Not only are dishes unbelievably easy to make with Grilled & Ready chicken, but the chicken is free from soy and wheat, helping those who have food allergies enjoy great meals too! 

With summer in full swing it is filling up with neighborhood parties, cookouts and family BBQs.  These gatherings are usually centered around one thing–delicious food!

Luckily, now there’s no need to fire up the grill with some simple yet delicious recipes!  And they are all made with fully cooked Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips, and can be made in 30 minutes or less!

Chicken Margherita Pasta

I made the Chicken Margherita Pasta for my family one night after a busy day and they LOVED it!  Both my daughter and my son loved it, and so did my husband!

When I first saw the recipe I thought it was very simple and that it wouldn’t have much flavor but I was wrong!  It was so yummy!  I even cooked the noodles and chicken up before I took my daughter to dance so then once we were home I just added the dressing and stirred to coat everything.  It was the perfect meal for the end of a busy day!

I really like the chicken breast strips because they cook up nice and are already cut up in nice proportions.  I did cut them in half for my kids while they were cooking in the pan.  I also made this for lunch one day because I wanted something nice and light.  We had some left over pasta from the night before so I just cooked up some chicken, made the dressing and it was ready to go!  I even think you could make this the night before and take it for work the next day.  It would be a healthier and cheaper alternative to going out for lunch.   Here is the recipe so you all can try it out!
