Since we last talked a lot of stuff happened. Things like taking a nap with brooke, planning out my route for my long run this morning and visiting Bangs Friend at work. Talk about productivity.
You may have noticed that we really like chicken in our household. (PS no I did not just get back from a run…it is just really hot in our apartment;)
When I was asked to create a recipe using Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips I was stoked. I have seen these in the grocery store and I have always wanted to try them because it doesn’t get much easier than cooking with these (especially because I do not enjoy touching/cooking raw meet). Hello convenient.
Other things that I noticed first thing about Tyson® Grilled & Ready® is that there are no preservatives and that they are all white meat. Also, I can think of about a million different recipes/meals that I could use with these…especially salads. Like my favorite Summer Salad that I make or the lunch that I eat every day of my life….chicken and sweet potatoes.
Drum roll please for the recipe……
Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce (I crave the PF Changs lettuce wraps at least once each day so I decided to make some lettuce wraps myself)
1 Package Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips (in the refrigerated section!)
1 Yellow pepper
1 Red Pepper
Chop the chicken, peppers and mushrooms into cubes and stir fry veggies in a little bit of olive oil for 3-5 minutes. Add chicken to skillet and warm (Tyson® Grilled & Ready® are already fully cooked). Season with salt and pepper.
Wash and cut your romaine lettuce, iceburg lettuce or cabbage for the wraps.
1/2 c chicken broth
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1.5 Tbsp. fresh minced ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp Sriracha Chili Sauce
Combine sauce ingredients and heat on stove (medium-low). Stir the sauce until smooth and warmed…once this happens it is ready to be poured all over your delicious Thai Chicken Lettuce Wrap.
Garnish with green onions, peanuts, carrot slivers and fresh lime juice.
Not going to lie. They were really good. The chicken was super flavorful and tender. I am hooked on how easy Tyson® Grilled & Ready® was to use and how incredible it tasted.

For dessert I had RED VELVET CAKE ICE CREAM. Doesn’t get much better than that.
I am sad that the Worst Running Outfit Giveaway from Brooks is over. I have had way too much fun getting your emails with pictures. The winner of the new top, bottoms and shoes is…………
“This is the outfit I wore for the Country Music Half Marathon. It was in the mid 40s and poured the entire time. The good news…when you dress like this, lots of people cheer for you!”
PS I saw this on Instagram (hungryrunnergirl) and it made me happy (it is kind of like the time that Billy used to buckle up his iPad):
Tell me THREE things that you are going to spend your Saturday doing!
When was the last time you ate chicken….what did you have it with?
Ever ran a race in the pouring rain?
For your weekend run are you trying out a new route or sticking to your normal one?
