Merry Christmas {#TysonGoodness}

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you had a beautiful day with your family and friends. How am I?

Well…Dear lord I am exhausted today. And I’ve been exhausted all week because we’ve been working on our master bedroom closet makeover. And it looks fabulous, we’re 80% done and I couldn’t be happier with how it looks.

The only way we’ve made it through the week is with quick dinners, one of them being Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches. (Click on the link to see if your local Walmart stocks them)


Eating out can get expensive, cooking can take forever (and mess up my clean kitchen!), so thank goodness for these mini chicken sandwiches. You can cook a pair in 2 minutes flat, and boy they do taste good. I am sure we’ve all had the frozen chicken entrées that look more like a sponge and taste nothing like chicken. Oh and the bread is good, too. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed.

Proof that it looks like chicken:


These aren’t like that. With 8 to a box, these were our Christmas Eve fourth meal (fourth meal= when you’ve had 3 meals, but are up so late you require a 4th) and they also were a dinner earlier this week when we had been Christmas shopping all morning, working on the closet all afternoon and just wanted to eat and sleep and be done. And they were also a quick snack before a party (I was starving and couldn’t wait to eat…oops).


That’s 12:36 am on Christmas Day when I was up making these sandwiches. I was eating by 12:40.

I know some of you may be wondering what the calorie info on these lovely sandwiches is (for a pair/2), and here’s the info. They’re not super low calorie, but they’re a great alternative to going out and having burgers/fries or pizza (both in calories and cost).


I like that these came with the cheese on them, and they really did cook up nice and juicy in 2 minutes flat. I had these with some chips for one meal and for another I had them with some leftover mashed potatoes. They go with pretty much anything. You can also fancy them up with lettuce, tomato and mustard, but I like them as is.

Easy, quick dinner after work, during crazy holidays or when you just feel lazy. And boy do I sometimes just feel lazy when I am off from work and doing a million and one things.


So from my kitchen to yours, these are a great timesaver and affordable. Also, when you buy 2 boxes of these lovelies you can get a $5 Walmart giftcard! If you’d like to see how my shopping trip went, you can view it over on my Google+ album.

$5 Walmart giftcard offer details:

Three easy steps to receive your Walmart Gift Card:

  1. BUY any two (2) Tyson® Mini Chicken Sandwiches (8 count).
  2. ATTACH  your original Walmart cash register receipt, dated between 10/31/11 and 1/13/12, containing the address of the Walmart store, the purchase date, and the purchased products of either Tyson® Mini Chicken Sandwiches or Tyson® Mini Chicken Sandwiches with Cheddar Cheese all circled,  THIS COMPLETED FORM,  AND
  3. MAIL to:  Tyson® Chicken Walmart Gift Card Offer, 35610 Mound Road, Dept. 2030, Sterling Heights, MI 48310-4725. Envelope must be postmarked by 2/13/12; received by 2/20/12.

Product must be purchased by 1/13/12. Offer expires 1/13/12 or when supply of gift cards runs out, whichever occurs first.   Supplies limited to 2,000 Walmart Gift Cards.

They’re easy to find in the freezer section at participating Walmarts.


I’ll be sending in my receipt for sure. That essentially makes it a BOGO free kind of offer since one box is $5.14.

Basically quick dinners helped us knock this project out…I will do a full reveal, but for now you’ll have to settle for a sneak peek!



Well, it’s late here in Texas, so I am going to go cuddle with my hubby and Pee Wee. We wish you all a very Happy Holiday! xoxo.

    They look great and I'm officially jealous of the closet!
