I regularly shop Target (and especially their sales paired with coupons and Cartwheel!), and I find affordable quick meals in the freezer section. I was looking for easy chicken options that had wholesome ingredients. For my meal planning, I like to get chicken and simple appetizers so we can enjoy our own Sunday Funday tailgate parties or easy snacks. Grab a bag of chicken tenders or chicken strips and get cooking! Both chicken strips and the chicken wings are easy to prepare and can be cooked up fast. Dinner doesnโ€™t look the same when you add in easy solutions to busy nights.
