Quick and Easy Meals & Countdown to a Better You: Tyson® Grilled & Ready® 

This is a sponsored post.

I’m now a mom to three, not two. Dinner time just a few weeks ago was chaotic enough, and now we’ve added a newborn to the mix. I’m always looking for ways to make mealtime easier, and Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken definitely helps our family out! I appreciate that their chicken is all white meat, fully cooked, 98% fat free, and has no preservatives. Since it’s precooked, it makes recipes a cinch, even for my picky eaters!

Tyson® Grilled & Ready Countdown to a Better You

Earlier this month, Tyson® launched their Countdown to a Better You program. The program will run 100 days, and ends on June 21, 2013 (the official first day of summer.)
