    How do you make dinner in just 15 minutes? By using 100% all-natural, made with white meat Tyson® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Grilled Chicken Breast Strips. Because they are fully cooked and not frozen, they just require heating before being served.

    Brussels sprouts are quickly sautéed before being tossed with shredded carrot, pineapple, spicy peppers, and a simple, homemade Szechuan sauce. The sweet and spicy Szechuan sauce uses natural juices from the canned pineapple with soy sauce, ground ginger and chili garlic sauce.
