Easy cooking with Tyson and Birds Eye

“I’m hungry!”  This phrase is uttered so many times a day in my house by everyone, including me!  I thought that I’d have more time for cooking with school out, but boy, was I wrong!  The last few weeks I’ve been dealing with a pretty big work load, and on top of this, we’ve been doing improvements around the house: painting, de-cluttering and organizing, rearranging furniture. Ah!

By the time I get done with everything else I have to do, the last thing I want to do is cook.  And yet, “I’m hungry!” continues to echo through the hall (and in my own mind and stomach).

Ordering out is an option, but we can’t do that every day, so having easy and convenient food options is a MUST.  For that, I often go to the freezer!

Grilled Chicken

A few days ago when my hubby and I got hungry, I pulled out just a couple of key ingredients:  Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets and Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends.

I’ve been purchasing Tyson and Birds Eye products for years.  I first bought Tyson’s Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets a couple of months ago.  My husband had just gotten out of the hospital, and I thought the chicken would be good to serve on a salad or sandwich, or with a side of Birds Eye vegetables.  Now the chicken is actually one of my favorite Tyson products!  It’s so delicious, and I’ve been able to use it for a variety of recipes that go WAY BEYOND a simple salad or chicken breast with a side of veggies!

Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken at Walmart

You can find Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets at Walmart in the frozen meats and appetizers aisle.  (Look for it alongside other great Tyson products!)

Birds Eye Protein Blends at Walmart

And you’ll find Birds Eye Protein Blends in the frozen vegetables aisle.  (Birds Eye products are easy to find.  Just look for freezers with the very recognizable blue bags.  If you don’t find the Protein Blends immediately, keep looking; my store has Birds Eye products in 3 different places on the aisle.)

The Protein Blends line contains vegetables, whole grains, and protein, and they come in 4 varieties:  Southwest Style, California Style, and Asian Style, Italian Style.

I just tried the Southwest style the other day, and it was great!

So what did I make with the Tyson chicken and Birds Eye Protein Blends?  I’m glad you asked!

Southwestern Chicken Wraps


8 Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breasts

1 package Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends Southwest Style

1/4 cup sliced onion (optional)

1/8 to 1/4 cup of cilantro (optional)

4 large flour tortillas

shredded cheddar cheese


Dice up an onion and cilantro. Set aside.

Follow instructions on the packaging for cooking your Tyson Chicken and Birds Eye vegetables. The chicken cooks up in 18 to 20 minutes, while the vegetables only take about 5 to 10 minutes once they've started bowling in water, so get your chicken started first and plan to cook your veggies so that they both get done around the same time.

As your veggies are cooking, mix in onions and cilantro, if using.

When your vegetables and chicken are almost done cooking place your tortillas on a microwave safe plate or wrapped up in a paper towel. and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute (or until they are nice and hot.)

Spread a small out of sour cream in the center of each tortilla. Place 2 chicken breasts across the middle of the tortilla. Top with additional sour cream. Then spread Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends Southwest Style on top of that. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Roll ends of tortilla in to a wrap. Recipe makes 4 large wraps. (To make serve more people and/or make smaller portions, cut chicken in to strips or dices and place in ingredients on small sized tortilla.)

See what I mean?  How easy is that?  And despite the easy and quick presentation, the meal is still a great source of proteins and vegetables that are good for us!  It’s a win-win!
