Disclosure: I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Burst Media. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, but my opinions are my own.
I love grilling during the summer, but sometimes I just don’t feel like spending that much time & effort on dinner. Some days it’s just go, go, go and I want an easy go-to dinner idea. Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken allows me to have the yummy grilled taste without the hassle. (Thank you Tyson!)
As a rule, I’m not a fan of frozen foods, but Tyson® Grilled & Ready® has no preservatives, is 98% fat-free and is all white meat. Plus, it’s fully cooked and so versatile you can use it in just about any chicken recipe. I’m all about anything that will save me some time in the kitchen.
I thought I would try the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® on my open face pulled chicken sandwich recipe. 15 minutes and this recipe was done! You’re not going to believe how easy this is.
Place Tyson® Grilled & Ready ® chicken in a foil lined, deep sided pan.
Cover with your favorite bbq sauce. I used between 1/2 and 3/4 of a bottle. Use as much or as little as you like.
Cook in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven, place chicken in a bowl and use a hand mixer shred the chicken.
The hand mixer takes just a couple of minutes to shred the chicken. I love this short cut method!
Place a heaping tablespoon of bbq chicken on a slice of deli bread and top with cole slaw.
1 bag of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Frozen chicken
1/2-3/4 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (I always pick one without high fructose corn syrup)
Line oven safe pan with foil (makes clean up very easy). Place the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® frozen chicken in the pan. Cover with 1/2-3/4 of a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. When chicken and sauce is heated through, place the chicken in a bowl. Using a hand mixer shred the chicken (this is my cheater method since I hate shredding with a fork). Serve over a small hearty slice of deli bread and top with cole slaw.
This serves at least 6. 4 of us ate it for dinner and there is plenty left for a couple lunches.
