Before I became a parent, I had grand ideas on what parenthood would look like. After I became a parent, I realized that most of my ideas were not only unrealistic but impossible. Working full-time is exhausting. Parenting a 3.5 year old is exhausting. And there are some days when I’m in survival mode. Dinnertime is often a challenge for me. I want to cook tasty meals but sometimes, I don’t have the time (or energy) to devote to cooking meals from scratch. Enter Tyson® Meal Kits.
One night I was shopping, hungry and running low on time. I’m always looking for convenient dinner solutions that taste GOOD. I saw Tyson® Meal Kits on the shelf and decided to try them out and see what my family thought of it!
Tyson® Meal Kits are sold in the meat section at Publix. We found it by the fresh chicken section. If you have a difficult time finding it, ask for help. We had a tricky time finding it, but the meat department manager helped us! Typically, these kits are found in the “ready to cook section of the fresh meat case”.
There is a large variety of Tyson Meal Kits to choose from. We purchased the Creamy Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. (We were also pleasantly surprised to see a $2.00 off peelie on the package! So be on the lookout for peelies!) From April 7th through April 13th, Tyson Meal Kits will be on sale $10.99 at Publix. And if you find a peelie, you will save even more bringing your total down to $8.99!
Some of the other kits available are 3 Cheese Chicken Carbonara, Beef & Cheddar Melt and Beef Marinara Penne. All of the kits sound so good!
Once we got home, I got to work cooking this meal! This meal could not be easier to prepare. The chicken is already cut, the noodles are precooked, and the sauce is already made. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 to make!
First, I browned the pre-cut chicken in a little olive oil.
Once the chicken is browned, open the pasta pouch and add the pasta to the skillet. The key is to keep stirring the pasta and chicken until the pasta is heated through. (Continual stirring helps avoid sticking.)
Lastly, open the sauce pouch and add the sauce to the skillet. Again, stir the pasta, chicken and sauce continually until the sauce is cooked through.
Voila! This dish was a HIT. My 3.5 year old son is a bit picky at dinnertime and he loved this dish! We will definitely make it again! I loved the fact that I could run into Publix, pick up this Tyson® Meal Kit and then in 3 simple steps have a tasty meal for my family!
