Friday Foodie Feature – Betty Crocker Chicken Helper

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

You’ve heard me say this before, “we eat so much chicken that I’m afraid one day we’ll wake up with feathers!”  No seriously, I cook chicken or turkey at least 3 times a week and it’s not that we tire of it, it’s just I have to find new ways to make it differently.  There are times when I am too tired to cook from scratch so I’m always looking for products that makes meal planning easier.

Betty Crocker, the maker of Hamburger and Tuna Helpers recently introduced Chicken Helpers and we loved it.  After dicing up skinless *Chicken Breasts, I followed the directions on the box to make the Sweet and Sour Chicken.  While the chicken cooked I boiled a pot of Jasmine Rice, dinner was done in less than an hour, tasted better than Chinese Takeout and there were no leftovers!

TIP: grab a few extra bags from the produce department to use as a shaker bag

Grocery store sales coupled with coupons from the Sunday paper and the Betty Crocker website is incentive enough for me to keep a few boxes of Chicken Helper in the pantry!

Have a fantabulous day!


* According to a recent report (see here), it’s more sanitary NOT to wash raw chicken as it spreads more bacteria, just cook it thoroughly.

    I’m going to start checking you out for feathers! LOL I’ve always wondered what was safer, wash then cook or just cook.

      Yes, me too!

    I usually wash my chicken with water and vinegar, but it does make sense to just cook it since the heat kills most of the germs
