Tysonlicious Pasta Salad

14 May

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I recently received a coupon to try Tyson’s Grilled and Ready Chicken for free.

Tyson offers a number of Grilled & Ready products such as Chicken Breast Fillets, Fajita Chicken Strips, Roasted Diced Chicken Breast, Seasoned Beef Strips and more!

Being a girl who likes a little convenience in her life, I bought a bag of the Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips

If you microwave the chicken strips, you only have to nuke it for three to four minutes-now that’s what I’m talking about! I’ve been using these all week from wraps to quesadillas to salads but my favorite creation has been my pasta salad I made using their chicken.


*Sea Shell pasta, cooked (this was leftovers of pasta cooked the night before so I don’t have an exact amount but I would say around 60g if I have to guess)

*Four pieces Tysons Grilled & Ready Chicken Strips, chopped

*1/4 cup red onion, chopped

*1/3 cup red pepper, chopped

*1/3 cup zucchini, peeled and chopped

*1/4 cup feta cheese

*3 tbsp cilantro, chopped finely

*2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

*1 tbsp lime juice

*black pepper, salt, garlic to taste

Heat the chicken up for three and a half minutes then cut into little pieces

Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy a flavorful pasta salad! I love the sea shell pasta because the add in’s get stuck in there so when you take a bite it’s packed with all kinds of flavor.

Delicious and so refreshing on a hot day! My only regret is that I didn’t make more of it. Thanks Foodbuzz and Tyson for letting me try the Grilled & Ready Chicken!
