The other day I was on my way home from a very long day of swim team practice, lugging kids around, and a ton of errands when it hit me that I had no idea what I was making for dinner. I had gone to the grocery a day or so before, but everything I had purchased was frozen, so I called the house to see if anyone could pull something out of the freezer and guess, what… no one was home! I thought about picking something up, but then I remembered that one of the items I had purchased from Walmart was the Tyson® Individually Frozen Thin Sliced Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts that can be cooked from their frozen state, so I decided that I would make my Easy Grilled Chicken Parmesan!
I liked that they were individually frozen so that if need be, I could cook one at a time. Plus, the fact that they have no added hormones or steroids is a major plus and since they can be cooked while frozen I was very excited to give them a try. I chose the thin-sliced version since they cook faster than the regular breasts and can be used in different recipes.
Ingredient list –
- Tyson® Individually Frozen Thin Sliced Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
- Tomato Sauce (canned, jarred, or homemade)
- Canned diced tomatoes to add to the sauce
- One cup shredded mozzarella
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan
- 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- Italian Seasoning
Sauce – I like a chunky sauce, so if your pasta sauce needs it, add the diced tomatoes and simmer your pasta sauce on low.
Load your stove/grill – You can grill your chicken on an outdoor grill, but it was raining when I got home, so I had to use my griddle. I loaded my stove with my pasta pot, griddle, and the tomato sauce so that everything would be completed at once. The pasta water should be on high heat, the tomato sauce on low to simmer, and the griddle on medium/high. Once the griddle is hot, add the FROZEN chicken breasts.
Flip the chicken over and then repeat those steps, brushing the other side with olive oil then sprinkling it with more Italian seasoning. Cover and cook for about five minutes. In the meantime, finish cooking and draining the pasta.
Once the chicken is cooked through, you are ready to serve your Grilled Chicken Parmesan. Since we have a big family, I like to put everything onto one big dish so that everyone can serve themselves. I began by adding the pasta to the plate, and then I topped it with the grilled chicken, and then sprinkled with the mozzarella, tomato sauce, and then the parmesan.
A meal like my Grilled Chicken Parmesan is one that fills everyone’s bellies and I know that with 21 grams of protein in each breast that we are good to go. A family meal is a must in our house and knowing that I can skip defrosting my chicken means less stress for me. Oh, and I have to say that after we were done eating I told my Mother-in-law that I grilled the chicken frozen and she was SHOCKED. Not one of us could tell any difference in the chicken. It was moist, full of flavor, and just all out delicious.
So, next time you are at your neighborhood Walmart, why not pick up a bag of Tyson® Individually Frozen Thin Sliced Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts from the freezer section and let me know if you try my Grilled Chicken Parmesan.
