I can’t help my love for chicken. I love it almost any way that you can cook it up. Though if it’s difficult, you most likely won’t catch me trying. I’m all about the simplicity of meals as most of you already know by now. I’m also fond of eating healthy and this is another reason why chicken is my meat of choice on most occasions. With the exception of frying it, you can really eat very healthy when you pick chicken over other meats. If you’re like me in the simple and healthy boat, then listen up!
Check out those stats! Here’s an interesting fact: the stats based on the survey above state that 66% of women and 61% of men admitted to cooking most often with chicken! Kinda staggering consider how men like their steaks and pork chops don’t you think?
One of my favorite shortcuts when it comes to simplicity (and healthy too!) are the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products. I actually just made dinner with them last night. I cut the grilled strips into bite-size pieces, tossed them with some brown rice and stir-fry veggies along with some seasonings and voila! Super fast and easy chicken fried rice.
