My boys practically live on Tyson’s Southern Nuggets. They prefer the spicier breading on them than the other kinds of chicken nuggets out there. This made me excited to see Tyson products featured in the Back to School #momsguide.
Feeding children on the autism spectrum and with food issues like texture can be a challenge. Since my 5 year old’s diet can be so limited, if he’ll eat a food, and it’s not too awful horrible, we just go with it. Tyson’s chicken is one of the few ways I can get my boys to eat some protein because of these sensory needs.
I took the opportunity to used the Back to School guide to see if the boys would be interested in some popcorn chicken. To my surprise, they were. Unfortunately, when we got to the store, the only flavor they had in stock was Buffalo Popcorn Chicken, so they decided to pass. Neither boy is a fan of anything Buffalo flavored. Looking at the other Tyson products, we didn’t see their old standby, the Southern Nuggets, in the chicken nugget section either. They finally decided that they would like to try the Southern Chicken Fillets, and the Spicy Asian Wings.
In our house, making the Tyson products isn’t just a fast and easy meal, but it’s a staple that I keep on hand for the boys. My husband and I even got into the game and got some chicken patties. I’m glad my husband suggested them too. The day that I ran all of my errands, I was exhausted, and chicken patty sandwiches was a nice easy meal to make for us. Sometimes I will also throw them in the oven with some cheese and we eat them with spaghetti and jarred sauce when we’re out of sauce that I’ve made.
What do you do for a fast and easy meal when you’re busy? Do you find yourself scrambling for dinner at the beginning of the school year until you get into a routine?
