Gluten Free is Life

I am a gluten-free wife, runner & blogger with two children in Columbus, Ohio. After my celiac diagnosis in 2006, I have made it my mission to embrace an entirely new approach to nutrition in a gluten-free world, exploring options that run the gamut from “made from scratch” homemade bread to sampling and reviewing the gluten-free prepared foods that are continuously being introduced to the market. While navigating the waters of becoming gluten-free, I share my experiences and pass along valuable product reviews in addition to helping other moms of celiac kids develop healthy menus that are kid-friendly and palatable. I feel that I am a valuable resource for those who are newly diagnosed, as well as for the more seasoned gluten-free veterans.

Review: Tyson Grilled & Ready Strips 

Wednesday, June 1, 2011 5:15:15 PM


Do you often feel like you have no time? I know that I can have a nice meal plan all laid out (and shared here) at the beginning of the week and then all of a sudden I have no time. Things pop up and my plan goes flying right out the window. Meetings at school,last minute store runs,etc. Enter:Tyson Grilled &Ready Strips.

These fully cooked,frozen chicken strips are great to keep on hand for quick lunches or dinners. They can be heated up in a saute pan or microwave in minutes,it is best to undercook at first. It is important to note that if you overcook them,they can be used as weapons. We tried these in several different ways – on a salad,in corn tortillas,in pasta sauce,on pizza and in a stuffed baked potato. Hannah didn’t care for them,but to be fair,I may have overcooked them. I was careful each time after the first time to undercook and then heat in small time increments. I especially liked them in my stuffed baked potato. 


In the potato:

Tyson Grilled &Ready Strips

Sauteed mushrooms

Provolone cheese

Frank’s Red Hot

On the side:

Trader Joe’s Duo Romano Beans (these rock!)

The strips are available in most grocery stores across the US. Only the strips are gluten-free – the grilled whole chicken breasts are not gluten-free

Have you tried these chicken strips? If so,what did you think?
