When it's too hot to cook, ready-cooked meats can make meal preparation a lot easier. Hillshire Farm recently introduced Grilled Chicken Breast. These are fire grilled, pre-cooked, perfectly seasoned chicken breasts that are ready to use. The also contain no preservatives! Four flavors are available:
- Hillshire Farm Grilled Chicken Breast, Garlic & Herb
- Hillshire Farm Grilled Chicken Breast, Italian Style
- Hillshire Farm Grilled Chicken Breast, Lemon Pepper
- Hillshire Farm Grilled Chicken Breast, Original Grilled
Another plus is that they are 97% fat free with only 1.5 g fat and 120 calories per serving – think easy diet food!
They come individually packaged with two in a box. Since they are each sealed individually, you can easily prepare just one for a solo meal. To heat it, you just remove it from the packaging, place on a microwave-safe plate and heat for one minute. (More or less depending on the power of your microwave.)
While this could be eaten just straight on a bun as a chicken sandwich, I have found it makes cooking chicken dishes very easy. I simply dice it up to use in pasta dishes, rice dishes, quesadillas, etc. I like Hillshire Farm Grilled Chicken Breast much more than I anticipated. I usually don't like pre-cooked chicken products, but these taste so fresh and basically like I had cooked it myself and just refrigerated for later use.
