It’s easy to get caught up in the summer hustle. We HAVE to do this, go there, see that. While we are checking off our summer bucket list, others are struggling to keep their heads above water. To help those in need and end hunger, use these 15 minute chicken dinner ideas and put “bring someone a meal” on your bucket list.
Helping people in need is a big priority in our home because we want to teach our children that life isn’t fulfilling when we just live for ourselves. When we serve others, it changes our attitude which affects our heart. Selfless giving does more for a persons character than any amount of training can.
I recently had Audrey help me make a meal for another family. Even though we are so busy, it was easy to make a double helping of this Tomato, Garlic and Basil Chicken Pasta.
With Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken, it only takes 15 minutes. Plus, you’ll be helping feed even more people in need because Tyson has partnered with Champions for Kids for a program called #SummerofGiving. For every bag of product purchased, 1 meal will be donated to a child in need by Tyson!
Ending hunger is a very important initiative to Tyson Foods. The Tyson Family Foundation initiative, KNOW Hunger is a project designed to encourage people to KNOW the scope of hunger in their own communities and get involved in relief efforts, so someday there will be NO hunger in our country
Walmart has also joined in the initiative and has promised to feed 5 million kids this summer!
So we went there and looked for the Summer of Giving display where specially marked packages of Tyson products are sold.
- 1 lb Bow Tie Pasta (Or your other favorite pasta)
- 2 tbs Olive Oil
- 1-2 cloves garlic minced
- ½ Onion chopped
- 1 can Italian Diced Tomatoes
- 2 tbs White Cooking Wine
- ½ bag Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips
- 10 leaves Fresh Basil chopped
- Shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Preheat a large pan over medium high heat. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions.
- As the pasta cooks, add the oil to the pan with the onions and garlic and cook until the onions start to get translucent, about 3-5 minutes.
- Next add the tomatoes and cook until they start to simmer. Add the white wine and bring back to a simmer.
- Toss in the chicken and basil, bring back to a simmer, and season with salt and pepper. Serve over the pasta and top with Parmesan cheese.
A simple and delicious home cooked meal can make all the difference to someone who is hurting or struggling.
