As a mom of five kids, dinner time has often been quite a struggle. When the kids were little, my biggest challenge was finding foods that I wanted to eat that they wouldn’t turn their noses up at. I had my share of picky eaters, that’s for sure! It’s so frustrating to make lunches and dinners day after day that they refuse to eat!
Now that my kids are a little older, they’re much more willing to try different tastes, but now I have new challenges to deal with. The biggest that we face as a family of tweens and teens is finding the TIME to cook meals for the family and gathering everyone together at the same time and place. It’s especially difficult during the summer months to find times when everyone is home at once.
It takes some pretty creative thinking to get lunch and dinner on the table each night and to make sure that everyone is eating 3 meals a day when they’re off their normal school-year schedules. Just the other day, I had to remind my recently-graduated daughter to eat lunch, because she was so preoccupied with making a cake that she had forgotten to sit down to eat some food.
I’ve discovered the secret to solving the summer-time meal dilemma – Tyson® chicken from Sam’s Club! Not only is it SUPER quick and easy for me to prepare a tasty meal for my family, but the kids love it so much that I don’t have to nag them to eat. They’re actually excited to eat lunch and dinner!
When I find that perfect meal-time balance (happy kids and happy mom!), I feel like a super hero. I feel like I’ve totally scored because I’ve got the best of both worlds with Tyson® chicken in my freezer – it’s food that my kids and I all enjoy eating and that anyone can prepare in a matter of minutes.
If I’m running late and need one of the teens to make a quick dinner for the rest of the family, I just have them pop a few Tyson® Chicken Nuggets in the oven or the microwave. We pair the Chicken Nuggets with some homemade fries and a green salad or fresh veggies and a dip, and dinner is done!
At lunch time, my teens and tweens can grab a few Tyson® Chicken Nuggets from the freezer and heat them up in just a minute or two. They’re much more likely to eat when they have something delicious to serve up!
For a different twist, we love using Tyson® Chicken Patties to make an easy chicken burger (no need to fire up the grill!). I like to top my crispy chicken burger with lettuce, tomato, and avocado for a fresh and tasty dinner-time sandwich.
I was excited to find a ton of our favorite Tyson® chicken products at our local Sam’s Club. They’re located in the freezer section at Sam’s Club and come in a variety of flavors, including crispy chicken strips, chicken tenders, chicken patties and more. See all of the Tyson® products at Sam’s Club here, or head down to your local club and check it out for yourself!
