Quick Chicken Dinner with Tyson #ChickenFryTime #Ad

I am always on the lookout for tasty meals that we can make in a hurry.  As part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®,  we picked up Tyson Fully Cooked Chicken fries for our Memorial Day RV trip this year.  This is a product which promises to be a great fit for quick snacks and as well as a chicken dinner option for this busy family.

In some ways, our homeschool lifestyle might make it seem like we have hours each day to slave away in the kitchen.  Instead, I find that it has become more challenging to feed the family when busy with aspects of homeschooling, blogging and being chauffeur for the boys to Scouting activities.  I like to get the older boys involved in the meal making process, too.  That step alone entails either lots of supervision and assistance on my part or finding something that they can manage on their own.


Tyson Chicken Fries to the rescue in our house as it is something that all of my older boys can prepare.  The chicken is already cooked, so it is more a matter of heating it up in either the microwave or oven.


Knowing we had a RV camping trip planned for Memorial Day weekend, we headed over to Sam’s Club to do some shopping.  I was pleased to find the Tyson Chicken Fries available in the freezer section.

At just under $12 for the bag with 18 servings inside, I felt it was the perfect fit for our budget and our needs while ‘roughing it’ in Alaska. (You can check out the entire shopping trip over on Google Plus.)


If I was better at preparation, I would have split up the bag before heading out in the RV.  Instead, I tossed the entire bag in the freezer and figured we would have plenty in case the trip lasted a day or two longer.


Our first night out in the RV, we baked the Tyson Chicken Fries in the RV oven while preparing instant ‘smashed’ potatoes, gravy and peas at the same time.

Some boys like everything separate on the plate while others are happy having it all mixed together.  So, I plated everyone’s dish a bit differently which meant there was no confusion over who’s plate was who’s.

As it was a gorgeous, sunny evening, we opted to take our plates outdoors.

Overall, the family gave the meal a bit thumbs up.  Their only complaint was that I hadn’t baked the entire bag of chicken fries.  Lucky for them, they will have the chance to have them again for lunch this next week.  We might even play with different making different dipping sauces like a honey mustard. And, I don’t think I’ll even need to do the cooking!
