Every other month or so, Meijer runs a ridiculously great deal on Tyson breaded frozen chicken. I can typically pick up a family-sized bag of chicken nuggets or chicken tenders for just $2.99 with the sale and (of course!) a coupon.
As much as our kiddos love chicken nuggets, I’m not a huge fan of just plopping a plateful of them in front of the kids to eat. So, I started brainstorming to think of a recipe that I could put together that would utilize the chicken nuggets. Strolling through the store, flour tortillas caught my eye, and I instantly thought of putting together Southwestern Roll-Ups.
Here’s what I came up with for my concoction:
Southwestern Chicken & Bacon Roll-Ups
Tyson frozen chicken nuggets, cut into small chunks
Turkey bacon, crumbled into small pieces
Kraft reduced-fat honey dijon dressing
Romaine or Boston lettuce
Place open tortilla on plate. Spread a small amount of honey dijon dressing down the middle of the tortilla. Add chicken, bacon, cheese, and lettuce according to preference. Roll up and enjoy!
The entire family loved this incredibly simple meal. And I felt much better about serving the kids chicken nuggets in this fashion as opposed to the traditional method!
Despite the predicted 100 degree temps for today, I am planning to squeeze a partial cooking day in this morning and early afternoon. I will be cooking in between accomplishing some much needed housework and preparing for our first week of school.
I’m hoping to complete the following by the end of this afternoon:
cook up 4 pounds of ground beef
I’ll post updates throughout the day, as well as recipes for the meals that I am making. Hope you all are having a great start to your Fridays as well!
