Two Meals, One Key Ingredient: My Review of Tyson Crispier Breaded Chicken Filets

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

As the mother of a two-year-old, I can tell you – it’s not easy to plan meals that appeal to both adults and toddlers. Actually, that’s not true. My husband and daughter would be more than happy to have macaroni and cheese and hot dogs every other night. I, on the other hand, would prefer a little more pizzazz in my menu.

One way I’ve found to accommodate both palates is to take the main ingredient and prepare it in two different yet simple ways. And one ingredient I’ve recently discovered that makes that process extremely easy is Tyson Crispier Breaded Chicken Filets.Tyson ChickenWe bought these frozen filets at Walmart after watching an in-store demo and a taste test of the product (you can see my entire shopping trip here).

Tyson chickenApparently it’s frowned upon to stand at the demo all day, snacking. As tempting as it is, don’t do that. Check out the chicken cooking during the demo. Oh yeah! I waited to taste it! It was a tasting, after all.

My plan: To bake the breaded filets and cut them into French fry-like strips for our little one (including a variety of dipping sauces for her), and to add the Tyson Chicken Filet as a topping on salads for mom and dad.

Tyson ChickenOverall, I was really impressed with the filets. They looked delicious even while still frozen, and looked (and smelled) even more delicious after spending about 20 minutes in the oven.

Our diva’s dinner was a cinch to prepare. We just carved the filets into strips, cooked a veggie for the side, and gave her a choice of three different chicken-friendly dipping sauces: barbeque sauce, honey mustard and ranch dressing.Tyson ChickenThe “grown up” dinner was equally easy. We prepared salads with some shredded cheddar cheese, croutons, and ranch dressing and topped with one of the Tyson Crispier Filets sliced into three pieces.Tyson ChickenAll in all, the Tyson filets were de-licious! True to their word, they were very crispy, which isn’t something you normally see in a frozen breaded filet. They were also juicy – again, not what you’d expect from a product like that – but I’ve prepared Tyson chicken products in the past, and they’ve always been juicy, so I shouldn’t have been surprised. And how’d they taste? Let’s just say, I’ve already got another bag of these filets in my freezer and I’m already thinking of ways to prepare them for our next kid-friendly/adult-friendly #mealstogether.

And now for the true test. What did our two-year-old think of the Tyson Chicken? She immediately dipped it in the barbeque sauce and loved it. Next, she dipped it in the ranch dressing and, again, loved it. She wasn’t that crazy about the honey mustard, but that was no fault of the chicken filets!

  2. oh boy! that looks yummy. i want to take some bites of your chicken. thanks for sharing and great reviews

  3. I like how you made two different meals with it! Pretty cool.

  4. Oh my, they sound really good, especially like the crispy part. I agree, you don’t see that with frozen chicken fillets. I’m thinking they would make great chicken sandwiches with some mashed avocado, tomato, onion and lettuce. Gotta try them

    • Momma on the Rocks Momma on the Rocks says:

      OK. Now MY mouth is watering. I made chicken sandwiches, but not with all those great toppings! Now I gotta go buy more to try these!

  5. love the different ideas! my kids are also very very picky!

  6. This is actually one of my favorite ones!
    Especially, since I had coupons for them lol.

  7. I love the ideas. I will often cook up a bunch of chicken and use it in several meals over the week – salads, sandwiches, or just as a main course. 🙂

  8. What great ideas. My kids are the terrible eaters so these are great suggestions. Thank you!

    • Momma on the Rocks Momma on the Rocks says:

      The diva will almost anything if she can dip it in a sauce! Not sure what it is about kids and sauces! lol

  9. these are good and you can make a lot of different meals from them

  13. Great meal idea! My son loves Tyson chicken, so it’s great to have ideas for how I can turn it into a meal for the entire family!

  14. My daughter loves frozen-breaded-chicken (and I like to have some on hand for busy nights) but I usually can’t stand the freezer-burnt taste and soggy breading. I can tell from your pictures that these hold up really well and look…crispy! I’ll definitely have to check these out 🙂

    • Momma on the Rocks Momma on the Rocks says:

      I know what you mean by the freezer-burt taste. These didn’t have that at all and the breading certainly wasn’t soggy! You definitely should try them!

  15. Brilliant idea! We try to keep Tyson Chicken Nuggets on hand.

    • Momma on the Rocks Momma on the Rocks says:

      Oh their nuggets are good too! I really enjoyed these in a salad and tried it in a sandwich too. So good! Crispy but not at all greasy!

  16. Can I just say I found what we’re eating for dinner tonight:) THanks

  17. I’ve never thought to put those in a salad but will definitely be trying it! They look good and my kids love chicken anything!
