Fire Grilled Chicken Strips

Meal planning is great, but let’s face it, sometimes you can’t get to the grocery store and have to work with what you have on hand. That’s when you look to your trust go-to staples. Like our Fire Grilled Chicken Breast Strips – fully cooked white meat, grilled to perfection, and ready to be added to your next meal. They come in a resealable bag, so you can use just what you need and keep the rest on hand for future inspiration. Here’s some idea-starters:

Salad for Supper: Adding a protein like grilled chicken takes salad from side dish to main dish. These strips are pack a delicate punch, so you can use them with Mexican, Thai or traditional salad ingredients. Here we’ve taken a Mediterranean approach with Grilled Chicken Salad with Red Pepper Hummus Dressing.

Wrap it up: Wraps are easy to make at home, and like a salad, thy can make use of whatever fresh veggies and greens you have on hand. They’re also more portable than salads – just roll your wrap in tin foil and you’ve got a healthy, satisfying to-go lunch. Here we’re amping up the flavor with Asian flair in a Thai Chicken Salad Wrap with Peanut Sauce.

Get comfortable: Pasta and chicken are a classic combo. You can add to a red sauce, sauté with veggies in olive oil or add to your favorite casserole in place of ground meat. Or make a grown-up mac and cheese by adding fully cooked bacon as well, like we did with our Chicken Bacon Mac and Cheese.
