Hey, it’s Tyson® crispy chicken strips! Wait, what? Chicken from the freezer aisle at Target? Yup, I buy it. Life is busy, friends. Like, 15-minutes-between-getting-home-and-leaving-for-soccer busy. And have you ever really thought about how chicken strips can pave the way for lots of other wholesome ingredients? Whether you wrap them up with veggies or dip them in guacamole, a good quality crispy chicken strip can be the answer when you want to feed your kids fast and feel good about it.
Plus, all hail Target.
Why Tyson Chicken?
The use of antibiotics with poultry can be a tricky road to navigate, but not with Tyson. Look for the seal on specially marked packages of Tyson Chicken (including nuggets, strips, Any’tizers® snacks and Drumsticks) and you can rest assured that they are raised with no antibiotics ever. Tyson has a heritage of raising chickens since 1935, and they’re keeping up with what today’s consumer is asking for. That means no artificial ingredients, and minimal processing. You definitely can’t say that about some of the other chicken products out there.
Easy Meal and Snack Ideas
Tyson chicken products are perfectly great on their own, but they’re also like a blank slate, just begging you to add your own spin. Sometimes, we cut up the strips and scatter them over a big green salad. Sometimes, I’m all about using the frozen tenderloins in a broccoli stir-fry or a wrap with tomatoes, bacon and romaine.
And sometimes, we head over to the sweeter side. If you love Chicken and Waffles (the sweet kind, not the gravy kind, which I know can cause quite a debate) or Chicken and Biscuits with honey, this slider biscuit is one for your recipe book. Here’s the recipe for the Maple Cinnamon Drop Biscuit, and all you need is a bag of Tyson crispy chicken strips to make a slider that’s worthy of Sunday breakfast or halftime on game day.
Soft, tender, scratch-made biscuits sweetened with pure maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon are comfort food at it’s warm and fuzziest. And the big bonus is that they cook at the same temperature and for the same amount of time as Tyson crispy chicken strips, so the math is easy. We drizzle ours with a little extra maple, and swipe on some mayo mixed with chili pepper just for a tiny hint of spicy kick.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, leveled
- 1 stick of cold butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- ½ Teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 scant cup whole milk
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet or stone with parchment paper.
- In a food processor, pulse flour, butter, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until crumbly. Add milk and maple syrup and pulse a few more times until mixture is moistened, but do not overmix.
- Scoop dough out onto baking sheet in 6 even parts. (Drop with a scoop, or roll into balls with hands for a more uniform shape.) Bake until golden brown, approx. 18–20 minutes.
From quesadillas and sliders to simple dipping and everything in between, if you need to get dinner done fast (or a snack, or lunch, or even breakfast!) Tyson chicken products are an easy way to make it happen. You can buy Tyson products fresh or frozen to suit the way you cook, and you can rest easy knowing that when you see those specially marked packages, there are no antibiotics ever. And who couldn’t use another reason to make a Target run?
Happy cooking, busy Moms and Dads! You got this!
