With Holidays around the corner, we moms get really busy. We have to start thinking about the menu to serve and the gifts we need to get for the kids. My kids have also started making their own lists. In this post, I am sharing a few ideas to make two easy savory dishes and a dessert in less time with help of @TysonFoods products, which you can get from your local Walmart. I made roasted spiced Brussels sprouts with bacon and pecans, chipotle honey sauce to go with Tyson® Parmesan Herb Crusted Chicken Strips. For the dessert, I made a Sara Lee® Cheesecake topped with white chocolate ganache and studded with sugared cranberries.
My son is ardent fan of Tyson® products, their chicken nuggets is a must for his school lunch. He says no to other similar products. My friend says your son is brand specific. But hubby thinks it is taste which makes him to go for it. As a hostess of parties, we moms need some stress-free times during holidays. That means a few fancy, tasty, formal meals that can be made quickly without spending the whole day in kitchen. This is where Tyson® products come to help. If you are too busy to shop, then Walmart grocery pick up can help you too. Best part is that just order fresh groceries online with same-day pickup, they even load it to your car.
Now the recipes: I made roasted spiced Brussels sprouts with bacon and pecans. I used Wright® Brand bacon, Natural Hickory Smoked one, and toasted pecans, simple, just halve the Brussels sprouts and add spices and oil.
I used cumin, and cayenne pepper as they go well with Brussels sprouts in curries. With touch of balsamic vinegar, you will have an excellent side dish in no time.
Then, go ahead and make honey chipotle sauce to go with Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips Parmesan Herb.
Again, you don’t need to worry about breading or frying the chicken strips. It already comes in packet and get ready in 20 minutes you can use oven or even microwave.
Finally, the dessert part gets Sara Lee® Classic Cheesecake, I topped with white chocolate ganache and studded with sugared cranberries. Your guest will go gaga over this gourmet looking dish. You can present this proudly on the holiday dinner table without much extra work. You can even make this cheesecake with white chocolate ganache a day before to reduce the work on the holiday day.
