I was lucky enough to be selected to try the Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken through the FoodBuzz Tastemaker Program. Sometimes things around here get busy on weeknights so I was really looking forward to having an easy go-to food like this to create recipes for the family.
We love Thai Peanut Chicken and this recipe would work well not just as a salad but also a pasta dish or even just the chicken mixed with the peanut dressing over rice. The ease of the Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken makes it very versatile.
