Feeding My Teens On A Busy Schedule
Tyson Chicken Fries and Dipping Sauce Recipe #cbias
It’s that time again, Play Week. My daughter was made Stage Manager of her school’s production of Bye Bye Birdie (SO PROUD by the way) and my life gets kicked into overdrive. I am also dealing with my 6 year old experiencing allergy induced asthma so cooking has been difficult. Add in a 15 year old with a run schedule and full high school course load, it gets mighty interesting. Thinking quick and cooking easy has become a must in my life. The problem with that is how do you cook quick and easy with out sacrificing nutrition? Luckily early on as a mom I discovered Tyson Chicken. It tastes great, kids love it and it’s super easy to make. As my kids have grown, so has Tyson. There are a ton of choices now and Chicken Fries are my kids new favorite. They are easy, they don’t require a fork and are extremely portable. They never get sick of them and I like them because I can mix and match them custom to each child. Carrots, pretzels, apples and red grapes go awesome with chicken fries! The girls and I decided to take a trip to Sam’s Club because they have demonstrations (that the girls love) plus they carry family sized bags of our favorite Tyson chicken.

Round One of Dinner
So we have our ingredients for a quick, easy dinner. What’s next? First I had to drop Gill off at her play and run home to feed my family (the first shift). In a rare moment I got my 15 year old to help me. He wanted to help make the dipping sauce I was making.
The dinner took less than 10 minutes to prepare. Pop the chicken in the microwave while you mix the dip. The dipping sauce was awesome because you just pop the left overs in the fridge and the next round of family members can enjoy it hours later.
Round Two of Dinner
Play production is over and Gill is home! Her Dad finally got home and the two of them sat down at 10 pm for a quick dinner before bed. Light easy dinner, perfect for my hardworking stage manager and hubby!
Notice how easily she can eat AND text. A MUST in a teens life. She liked the dips so much she has asked to have me make them for her next hang out with her friends. I think it was a hit and I have enough left over for the next few nights of the play. I’ll just switch up the sides. The cheese dip was awesome with the pretzels and carrots by the way.
To make the red sauce you just need ketchup, steak sauce and mayo….heavy on the mayo. I modified it from the red sauce my family uses for cod filets.
Tangy Cheese Dip
Quick, cheesy, tangy dip.
- Cream cheese (1 large tub)
- 1 TBS Steak sauce
- 1/2 tsp Dry mustard
- 1/2 package Ranch dressing mix
