To help get you on your way, Tyson Foods, makers of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products is going to give one lucky I Wash You Dry reader a 6 month’s supply of their fantabulous products!! {keep reading to get to the giveaway}

My favorite Grilled & Ready® product is their fully cooked chicken breast strips. I use them all the time. I love the convenience of having fully cooked chicken breast at my disposal whenever the need arises. It’s easy to make healthy choices when the good stuff is right in front of you.

When I was younger I hated Chicken Salad. I’m sure it had something to do with the way it was presented to me. Canned chicken, loads of mayo, and… well, that should pretty much sum up why I hated it. I have a serious dislike for canned chicken. Sorry, but it screams “cat food” to me.  And let’s be honest, how can anything with a shelf life of nearly 5 years really taste that fresh?

Nowadays I make my Chicken Salad with freshly shredded chicken breast, but when I’m in a hurry and don’t want to bother with boiling or roasting chicken I reach for a bag of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® fully cooked chicken breast strips. I skip the mayo and opt for some rich and creamy plain Greek yogurt. This time to boost the creamy factor (without adding any guilt) I added some mashed up avocado to the mix.

    So far I don’t have any plans. But my family tends to be pretty spontaneous, so who knows what the summer will hold 🙂
