With three teens and a tween in my house this year, I struggle with keeping them full. They wake up hungry and pretty much stay that way through all seven of their regular meals.
They’ll stand in front of the open doors of a full pantry and moan that there’s nothing to eat. Of course, there are ingredients, just nothing they can move into their mouths within sixty seconds.
I had an opportunity to try out the new Tyson mini chicken sandwiches and taste tested them with my always-hungry kids.
First of all, I had to search for the sandwiches at Walmart. They weren’t in the freezer cases with the other Tyson products, but in the free-standing open cases by the meat section.
Then when I got home I discovered I’d not used the peelie coupon on the box for a dollar off. That is a sad, sad feeling. Don’t make the same mistake I did.
The sandwiches were easy to prepare and cooked up quickly in the microwave. They smelled good, the bun was tender and not too chewy, like some microwaved bread. The chicken was moist and flavorful and the cheese was good.
I’m picky about cheese. I like “real” cheese and I’m not a fan of American-type processed cheese unless I’m craving a grilled cheese sandwich. The cheese on the Tyson mini chicken sandwiches was a tasty cheddar. I liked this and I would buy it again.
We ate the sandwiches as a snack by themselves, but they would make a nice little meal served with some cut up vegetable sticks and a piece of fruit. Or with a whole bunch of potato chips. Whatever.
These would be great after soccer practice, as a quick dinner, or even for breakfast. And kids can prepare them quickly and easily by themselves while you sit on the couch and watch Psych reruns.

I tell you, my kids would devour those in no time flat.
Their gaping maws demand nearly continual sustenance.
I try to avoid filling them with already prepared foods, but occasionally, I do cave.
I covet their metabolisms.
I like having things on hand the boys can make quickly before classes in the morning or before going to work. It beats them stopping for fast food, which is really what they’d do.

I am SO with you on the cheese. American cheese is pretty gross! Glad you liked them!
They were tasty. Next time I get a whole one to myself.
I am glad that I am not the only one with kids hanging out looking in the pantry. I have four kids and they seem to always be hungry!
