This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc., Circle Foods LLC, and Pinnacle Foods Group LLC. All opinions and text are entirely my own. Life is definitely busier now than it was when I was a kid. I realize as a kid, I wasn’t always aware of all the adult things going on around me. But my family sat down to eat, at the table, every single night.
Of course there was always the occasional thing that arose, like a school event, sports practice that went late, and such, but by and large, evenings were quiet. Homework was done, TV was watched; we relaxed.
Now, I have to make it a point to sit down at the table to eat. The occasional school event is part of my adult life as a parent now. There are no sports being practiced…yet. But somehow our evenings are often packed with this or that.
I am not complaining, although a bit more table time together would be good, my little family is doing well and we are loving our life. Despite our being busy, we still manage to get in delicious food that isn’t from a drive-thru window.Being a single mom for the majority of my daughter’s life, I’ve worked out a system for eating on the go that still has nutritional value and not just empty calories and fat grams. I feel like I am writing an ad slogan someplace when I say ‘just because it’s fast, doesn’t mean it’s bad.’
But I believe that. Take these Tuscan Grilled Chicken Wraps as an example. I was able to assemble our dinner (and a couple to wrap up for lunch the next day) in about 10 or so minutes. I used one pan and one cheese grater…that’s it. Food fast is great, minimal clean up is the cherry on top.I keep a detailed calendar (two actually, digitally and on paper), and saw our schedule was revving up to be a bit busier than normal and I needed to get prepared. I popped down to Walmart to get the standard pantry staples we’d run out of and a few items to make some quick and easy dinners.
The top of my shopping list: TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas, Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken, and Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing. I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
Tuscan Grilled Chicken Wraps! Ever since the idea of adding beans to my pasta recipes, and other places I am unaccustomed to seeing them, was introduced to me, I fell in love with the flavor combo and the additional protein.For our quick meals, I wanted them to be tasty and good for us as possible along with super quick and easy. The tortillas take just a minute or so to cook. I heated the chicken in the same pan as the tortillas, and those took just a few minutes on each side. While the chicken was cooking, I layered my tortillas with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and white beans (canned, drained and rinsed).
Once the chicken was ready, I placed it on top of all the goodies, generously coated everything in the Italian dressing (after giving it a good shake of course) and then liberally applied Parmesan cheese, and I mean LIBERALLY. I used Parmesan because it was in my fridge, but Romano would be equally delicious in this, if that’s your preference.
And voilà, Tuscan Grilled Chicken Wraps, ready to eat and loaded with ingredients that are not only delicious, but you can feel good about feeding your family.
Now a tip with the delicious Wish-Bone dressing. While it’s delicious as a salad dressing, it doubles beautifully as a marinade for chicken and pork (can’t vouch for beef, as I’ve never done it, but I’d be willing to stake my reputation on a steak). One of my early recipes here on TCS was a Bruschetta Stuffed Chicken that wades in pool of this delicious dressing.
You all know I love making my own dressings, but Wish-Bone is one prepared product I feel good about using as there is no HFCS (no high fructose corn syrup) and is naturally GF for all my Gluten Free friends.
