Sometimes….days don’t go as planned. I like to have a game plan for the day when I wake up in the morning, a running list of things that I would like to accomplish before the day is done. Then…as soon as I step my feet on the floor…that whole plan is shot. Basically. Before it even had a chance to begin. That whole to-do list goes out the window like a big gust of wind carrying all my hopes and dreams for the day with it. Gone. Forever.

It’s days like those that I like to have easy dinner ideas at the ready….just in case my dinner plans went out the window with my to-do list. When I was “teaching” myself how to cook I created a few favorites that stuck with me for several years. Tried and true recipes that I would throw together at a moments notice without sacrificing flavor or spending hours in the kitchen. Since then, those recipes have gotten even easier to whip up with the help of products like Tyson® Grilled and Ready Chicken and Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing.

When I made my last trip to Walmart a few days ago, I decided to stock up on a few pantry staples so I would have everything I needed to make my favorite Italian Tortellini Salad with Grilled Chicken. After I grabbed my favorite Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing, I headed to the freezer section where I found the Tyson® Grilled and Ready Chicken. It’s pre-cooked chicken that you can just reheat in the oven or microwave making it super convenient for easy lunches and dinners. This chicken is going to make a regular appearance on our dinner table in the weeks to come. It’s healthy and perfect for throwing in everything like these nachosquesadillas or this salad.
