Some nights there’s time to make dinner from scratch. Some nights there is not. For days when there is barely time to even eat dinner, it is nice to have something in the freezer that I know I can whip up in a hurry and the whole family will eat it without complaint. Always in search of a new back up dinner, when I was asked to try Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches as a quick dinner solution, I was game.
The night of our neighborhood’s annual parade was the perfect night to try out our new quick meal. After a full day of errands and a little Christmas decorating, we finally got around to thinking about dinner at 6 pm. Since we had to be ready for the parade at 6:45, that didn’t give us much time. (Especially since K is the slowest eater ever, these days she can take an hour to eat some nights.) Luckily, our full day of errands included our Walmart shopping trip to buy Tyson Chicken Mini Sandwiches, so we had everything we needed for a quick meal. (See our shopping trip adventure in pictures here.)
Prep was a breeze. Stick the whole pouch in the microwave for 45 seconds, flip, then 35 seconds and done. (Slicing our tiny tomatoes took longer.) Since we were really pressed for time, the sweet potato fries even went in the toaster oven (they are better in the real oven).
Alright, so they are quick, but how do they taste? Actually, I am happy to say they are pretty good. Everyone (even the pickiest eater – me) ate every last bite! Hubby added mustard to one and hot sauce to another. K ate them as is. And since I am allergic to yeast, I ate just the patties. It’s a good thing we all liked them because we bought two boxes. (Walmart is currently running a promo that if you buy two boxes you can submit for a rebate in the form a $5 Walmart gift card. Since the boxes are $5.14 each, that made the second box virtually free so we gambled and bought two. Now I don’t have to feel guilty because we all agreed that we will happily eat them again. Learn more about the $5 rebate here.)
By the way, in case you are wondering. Hubby ate three, I ate two and K ate one. That leaves two more in the first box.
After we were all fueled up, we were ready to head out to the parade. (One of my favorite annual neighborhood traditions!)
Since not every Walmart carries the Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches (why?) be sure to check to see if your local Walmart carries them before you head out.
