SPRINGDALE, ARK. – With more people cooking at home over the last year, a trend that will most likely continue, Tyson has released new flavors of its Instant Pot Kits, Instant Pot Seasoned Proteins and Oven Ready Family Size Kits.
The new offerings appeal to consumers seeking easy-to-prepare meals that are easier to clean up, and stave off pandemic-induced kitchen fatigue. According to Tyson, about 60% of consumers cooking at home report using crockpots or similar appliances.
“Families everywhere are looking for their next great-tasting dinner solution,” said Steve Silzer, senior marketing director for Tyson. “It was important for us to offer our new varieties of fresh meal shortcuts to cut down on the time spent chopping and stirring so families can spend more time together at the table enjoying comfort food classics.”
The two new flavors for the Tyson Instant Pot Kits include Creamy Chicken & Noodle Casserole and Creamy Stroganoff Beef & Noodle kit.
The fresh Creamy Chicken & Noodle Casserole kit cooks in about 20 minutes. It includes Tyson’s antibiotic-free chicken and includes seasoning and egg noodles. The kit provides six servings with 20 grams of protein per serving.
The Creamy Stroganoff Beef & Noodle kit offers prepped, fresh ingredients offering four to five servings and 17 grams of protein per serving. The meal kit cooks in 25 minutes and is filled with beef strips, egg noodles and topped with a cream-based sauce.
The Tyson Instant Pot Seasoned Proteins now include the new Chipotle Seasoned Chicken. The ready-to-cook ingredients are paired with on-trend sauces and take about 20 minutes to cook in an Instant Pot. Fresh boneless, skinless chicken thighs with a chili braising sauce makes five servings with 16 grams of protein each.
The Tyson Oven Ready Family Size Kits are also available in the Roasted Garlic Alfredo Fettuccine Pasta & Chicken variety. Ready to cook in minutes, the new kit comes with an oven-ready tray and makes four to five servings with 21 grams of protein each.
