5 Fast and Fresh Weeknight Meals

 

This week I am partnering with Tyson and Birds Eye to bring you 5 quick and nutritious meals that are perfect for any night of the week, but especially hectic weeknights.   So I headed to Walmart to find the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets which are fully cooked and a few of the Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends (I chose Asian and Italian style).

The first meal I worked on is Chicken Teriyaki over vegetables and grains from Birds Eye Asian style blend.  While I placed the chicken with a tablespoon or two of teriyaki in a pan to quickly heat it up (since it is already fully cooked), I heated the protein side dish in the microwave.  It all came together so quickly and check out the finished product!

Next I thought of one of my kids favorites, chicken quesadillas.

These were even more flavorful than the ones I have made in the past because the grilled chicken  adds a another layer of yumminess.

I added the quesadillas to a grill pan and just like that – meal numero DOS was complete!

Next up is an easy and healthy meal using bib or butter lettuce, chicken breast, and the italian protein blend.

I carefully separated the lettuce leaves so that they would serve as “cups” for the rest of my ingredients.  I added some parsley and avocado to the mix and there you have it – Meal number 3.

Moving on to something more decadent – Chicken Spaghetti Alfredo.  While I cooked the pasta until it was al dente, I heated up the chicken and the alfredo sauce in a pan.  I added the cooked pasta and let it absorb some of the flavors and…

Mangia Time!  Dish number 4 was delicious and there were no leftovers!

If Taco night is a staple at your home, you will love how quickly this last dish comes together.  I already had fresh salsa and flour tortillas in the refrigerator so this was a cinch to prepare.

I finished off my tacos with avocado slices, cilantro and queso fresco (any crumbling cheese will do).

Five easy and delicious weeknight means done in no time!   Using chicken that is already cooked cuts so much prep and cooking time in the kitchen!  You can also feel good about using Tyson chicken breasts because they are 100% natural and have no preservatives or hormones added.  The Birds Eye veggies have added proteins which round out your meal.  And a table full of happy and full family members rounds off your night.

What is your favorite quick weeknight meal?

    Love these ideas! I need quick and fresh meals as I work 2 jobs and don’t have much time to spend cooking. I am going to try the precooked chicken.
