Dinner is a big deal in our house especially during the week when the kids have school and Greg is working. Do you ever have those moments when all your hear is “What’s for dinner?”, I believe I get that almost every night and the answers always varies between the kids and my husband. When the kids have a busy week in school with lots of homework I tend to plan an easier meal so that I am not stuck in the kitchen all night. I decided to try a new recipe that has only has three ingredients. That’s easy enough right?
What you need:
Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips
Is made with 100% All Natural Ingredients, White Meat, no added hormones, steroids or antibiotics.
Barilla® Chunky Traditional Marinara Sauce
Is delicious sauce in multiple flavors that are each made ith all natural ingredients like vine-ripened tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and herbs that are all slowly simmered to have that fresh garden taste.
Barilla® Gluten Free Spaghetti Noodles
This is Italy’s #1 pasta. Made with non-GMO corn and rice, certified gluten free. Makes quick and easy dinners with Al Dente perfection in every bite.
Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips are fully cooked and frozen.
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Place frozen strips on baking sheet.
3. Heat 18 to 20 minutes. (I flip 10 minutes into heating)
Barilla Gluten Free Spaghetti Noodles
1.Bring a 4qt. of water to boil, add light salt .
2.Place noodles in boiling water and stir.
3. Cook noodles for 10-14 minutes (depending on how you like the texture)
Barilla Marinara Sauce
1.Pour sauce in a pot and simmer on low/medium heat until bubbly.
2. Reduce heat.
Once all is ready I place the noodles topped with one or two chicken strips (whole or diced) smothered with marinara sauce. You can top with Parmesan cheese, or your favorite toppings, try with other Barilla® Chicken products as well. Add a side salad and a bread of choice and you have a complete meal in no time.
This meal takes no longer than 30-45 minutes to prep/cook and ready to serve. Now I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time focusing on the kids homework, and evening routines. At dinner time what I love most is being able to sit down and share a meal together. Some times Greg doesn’t get home until the kids are getting ready to eat and this is the time I try to make an easy dinner for all of us to enjoy together.
The kids really love this meal as it reminds them of spaghetti which is one of their favorites. I’m glad that I was able to add the Tyson® Chicken Strips and Barilla Marinara Sauce and Barilla Spaghetti Noodles to our menu during the busy weeks.
What is your favorite quick and easy meal?
