Making A Meal For Me! Southwestern Chicken Salad #InspireMyDinner

As a single mom, my boys aren’t always so thrilled with the what I want to make and seriously, I don’t always want to eat macaroni and cheese, hotdogs or chicken nuggets.

Scratch that, I rarely want to eat those.
For the longest time I just made things that were easy and something they wouldn’t complain about, but I’d try something every once in a while. Gee that was always fun. Buddy learned to not complain, but give me his feedback. Doodle, yea, he still gags at the table. Nice, right? I won’t take that personal or anything.
Lately I’ve been on a salad kick! I’ve been eating them about 3x a week and usually it’s prepackaged. Not a big deal, but I’m really wanting to cut out as much prepackaged food as possible. Trying to eat healthier and with fresher foods is a goal of mine this year!

We actually eat chicken quite a bit, but with these new flavored chickens, our/my dinners will be much easier to make. I can make something fun for myself or make a healthy meal for all of us!
I’ve also been loving Southwestern flavored food. We’ve been eating homemade salsa, nachos and now…I have a new Tyson Southwestern Chicken Salad! Nothing like healthy chicken recipes!

My mom was home the other day and I started cooking a single chicken breast since no one else was hungry. I opened the brand new bag of Tyson Southwest Pepper Trio Seasoned Chicken and could smell the seasoning! I knew I scored a goal before I even started cooking!

Once I had the chicken breast cooking, my mom literally came out of the laundry room saying how good the house smelled! I definitely agreed! While the chicken was browning, I got all of my other ingredients washed and ready to add.

Tonight, I’m making another chicken dinner, which I’ll be sharing on here a little later, hopefully tonight! When we were out to dinner last night, Fred was going to order a grilled bbq chicken with smokey apple gouda cheese with a whole wheat bun, avocado, tomato and romaine lettuc. I thought that would taste fantastic as a sandwich!

Once I get dinner done, I’ll share my newest meal with you too! Yay!

I love SouthWestern stuff too, but I'm not a fan of corn. The sandwich would be great for me! There's nothing better than a slab of avocado on a big sandwich! :)

Oh my goodness, this looks scrumptious! I absolutely love the romaine lettuce bed for the salad. That is a great idea, plus it looks so amazing for entertaining!

Both look yummy! I got Kale and 2 heads of romaine in my Produce Box this week, so we will definitely be eating lots of greens this week!
