I was compensated by Tyson Foods to produce this post.
My husband Mack has 3 main food groups: tacos, hamburgers, and most importantly pizza. A picky eater to say the least and one of the only veggies he acknowledges are potatoes. With the new year like most Americans we once again strive to eat better, especially since I ‘let myself go’ after my November wedding into what I ended up referring to as ‘no carb left behind’ December. This year Tyson Foods is helping out too with their “Just Add This” program of clever swaps and tips to help turn your temporary diet into a new healthy lifestyle. Their goal is to just add a better-for-you ingredient, like Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken to a favorite salad, or just add a ten minute power walk to your daily routine and be on the way to a better lifestyle. My husband and I have developed some bad habits of going to the grocery store with good healthy intensions, purchasing great fresh products, and after a long day of work and no desire to cook ending up with a delivery pizza and wasted health food. Tyson Foods has solved both of these issues with their Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken, and not just for me and my fresh salads with Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken breast strips, but now also for Mack with this great recipe Tyson Foods has shared with us for Grilled Chicken Flatbread Pizza.
This isn’t ‘chicken fragments’ like you get with most ready to eat brands-these were nice size chunks of roasted chicken as if you had done all the hard work yourself. As an added bonus, Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products are in space saving bags for the freezer so your freezer isn’t storing more plastic bag than tasty chicken. The bag fit really well in my small veggie section on the side of Mack’s pizza storage area. The recipe came out perfectly and even earned a Mack rating of 4 out of 5 doughnuts on his doughnut tasty scale.
