Ten Minute Chicken Stir-Fry

While cooking for the cowboys today, I had tons of interruptions that wasted so much time, leaving me in a cooking bind.  I had to think quick in order to get something served up for these hard working cowboys to eat.  Thankfully, I always keep convenience items on hand as I’ve said before so within 10 minutes, I had the main dish prepared and ready to eat.

Tyson Chicken Breast Strips saved my day!  I planned on making fajitas but realized that I still wouldn’t have time to do that so while hunting around in my freezer, I found some Deluxe Vegetable Stir-Fry (Great Value brand) and threw that together with the chicken….VIOLA, your meal is served.  I did make some flavored dirty rice to serve with it but the entire meal was fast, budget-friendly, and tasted VERY good!

What items do you keep on hand for emergency situations?

Recipe: Ten Minute Chicken Stir-Fry


  • 1 bag (there’s two sizes, this is the bigger one) of Tyson Ready-Grilled Fully Cooked Chicken Breast Strips
  • 2 16oz bags of Great Value Deluxe Vegetable Stir-fry
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Throw both the chicken and stir-fry into a 3qt pan. Add butter and cook until vegetables are soft; about 10 minutes.

Serve with Rice or Noodles.

    This is perfect for tonight. I was looking for easy and healthy, since we are all stuffed to the rims with trick or treat sugar! The good part about too much sugar is that I usually will not crave it again for days due to extreme overload of sweetness. These veggies and chicken could be just the ticket to get back on track. Thank you! :)
