Some of my family’s most favorite dishes are fusion foods, those created by blending two different cuisine styles. The merging of exotic flavors always tantalizes the senses and it’s always a treat to try something new! When given the opportunity to create an easy grilled chicken recipe with Tyson Grilled & Ready to showcase their new Blended movie promotion, I knew I wanted to share one of my family’s fun meals! What better way to share a story about blended families than with a blend of family dishes?
Butter Chicken is one of my favorite Indian dishes. Indian sauces are rich in spice and cream, so I knew it would work well with the Tyson Grilled & Ready Fajita Chicken Strips. I liked how they were already pre-seasoned. Generally speaking, common Fajita spices are onion, garlic, paprika, chili powder and cayenne pepper which blend well with Butter Chicken spices: tumeric, garlic, chili powder, cumin, garlic, and ginger. Don’t worry, to save you a lot of trouble we’re just using a spice mix!
- Shan Spice Mix for Butter Chicken
- Tyson Grilled & Ready Fajita Chicken Breast Strips (2pkgs)
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 1/2 cup of Heavy Cream
- 1/4 cup of Butter
- 1/2 cup of Jasmine Rice
- Yellow Pepper (you can also use Red or Orange)
- Soft Taco Shells
- Mix the Shan Spice Mix for Butter Chicken with 1/2 cup of Water, then add your Tyson Grilled & Ready Fajita Chicken Breast Strips.
- Heat this mix on Med-Low heat in a skillet, add in your Milk and Heavy Cream.
- While your chicken is heating, cook your Jasmine Rice as directed and slice your pepper and cucumber into thin slices. Warm your soft taco shells.
- When the rice and meat are finished, add a large spoonful of each into the soft taco shell and top with cool cucumbers and yellow peppers!
It was a little bit spicy for Tot, so I ended up making the same taco without the Butter cream (just rice, Tyson Grilled & Ready Fajita Chicken Breasts and peppers/cucumbers) for him and it worked out great. The peppers and cucumbers also create a cool blend to the hot spicy butter chicken, it’s perfect!
Here’s some great news! If you purchase 2 Tyson Grilled & Ready products you can get a FREE movie ticket to see Blended! Blended is about Jim (Adam Sandler) and Lauren (Drew Barrymore) who find themselves stuck together at a family resort after having a horrible blind date. The odd mix of family members somehow find themselves growing together and their burgeoning relationship becomes something more.
Growing up as a middle child of 5 children and then later merging with 5 step/half brothers and 2 step sisters I completely understand the idea of a blended family. Blended families can mean all sorts of things though! I think my teen would consider our family blended as we used to be a single family (just me and him) and then I had gotten married and his little brother came later. Just like the Tacos, it is a fusion of two people’s ‘spice’ and making them work in the best way.
So you can hop on over to Walmart, grab 2 Tyson Grilled & Ready Fajita Chicken Breasts with the #TysonMovieTicket stickers (or whichever your favorite is), make sure to keep your receipt and follow the directions to get your FREE movie ticket! If you make your hubby go get some then you can have the perfect date night AND make some yummy Butter Chicken Tacos! Now that sounds like a great blend of ideas!
