When the kids get out of school for the summer, I hear DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince singing "Summertime" in my head. Then I quickly remember that I don't get to jump on my Dream Girl Bike and hit the streets for the next few months. Nope. Not I said the busy with mom with two extra kids home for the next few months. That means extra mouths to feed and a busy schedule of dance classes, basketball camp, summer exploration, and whatever else finds itself penciled in on the calendar. Thankfully I have come up with a Quick Chicken Dinner and Chicken Snack Ideas to get me through.
I want meals that pretty much make themselves and being portable is a plus. I headed out to Sam's Club the other day to check out their chicken for the chicken recipes I had in my head. Also, to get out of the house for a bit. I have accepted the fact that 80% of my adult time out of the house is spent at the grocery store, or a store of some sort. Don't get me wrong, I love food, but I could use a plate of food not cooked by me, with a side of Moscato.....couldn't we all?! You can check out my Sam's Club Shopping Trip Google+ Album to see all the fun I had and there is even wine!
If you are finding your schedule full and your clock out of time, throw together a quick chicken snack, like a Tyson Homestyle Chicken Fries and Bacon Wrap, for the kids and hubby. Then, call your lady friends and meet somewhere and order that Moscato! I whipped these up the other day when we were busy getting ready for Tween Girl's Dance recital. I didn't have time form much between hair, makeup, and attitude. She and I were both smiling once we took a bit. We both loved them and I think they are better than drive thru snack wraps!

Quick and easy meals for dinner are another must when there is a basketball camp, dance class, or other extra curricular activity going on. Meals that are big on flavor but don't take all day to bake. Whip up a Quick Chicken Dinner with Tyson Homestyle Chicken Fries. They were perfect for my version of Chicken Parmesan. I call it my version because I used some pasta sauce from the cupboard and a giant can of Parmesan Cheese that I picked up at Sam's Club.
