{Easy + Healthy Lunch} BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

The perfect solution for a quick and easy lunch at work or on the go. I love how the these Jimmy Dean Delights lunch or dinner entrees are easy but still offer low calorie options packed with protein! {Get your Jimmy Dean® coupon for $1 off of 1 Jimmy Dean® or Jimmy Dean Delights® Frozen Lunch or Dinner Entrees at Smiths, or if you shop at other Kroger brand stores you can find your Kroger Jimmy Dean coupon here!}

I have really struggled with lunch options for me since I have had kids. I always have easy kid food laying around the house but after fixing a meal and getting the 500 things the kids need while eating it seems that I have no time or energy left for me. If I don’t have an easy and appealing container of left overs waiting for me in the fridge (and when does that really happen?) then I often just go without or end up snacking on things that are totally bad for me.

While prepping for my trip to the grocery store, I found a great Jimmy Dean coupon so I went to Smith’s (our local Kroger brand grocery store) because I had to fix this problem! My current eating habits were just not cutting it and definitely not healthy or a good example for the kids. We have long been a fan of Jimmy Dean products for breakfast. Their easy breakfast sandwiches and bowls are such a great way to have a balanced and filling breakfast and allows me time to feed everyone since they are so simple to make! {Get your Jimmy Dean coupon for $1 off of 1 Jimmy Dean® or Jimmy Dean Delights® Frozen Lunch or Dinner Entrees at Smiths, or if you shop at other Kroger brand stores you can find your Kroger Jimmy Dean coupon here!}

With this in mind I went down the frozen foods aisle at Smith’s and found that Jimmy Dean is now making a whole line of lunch and dinner entrees as well! There was no question I had to try it! If I could get the same wholesome goodness we love for breakfast in a quick and easy lunch it was a no brainer. There are tons of options for all types of entrees. From sandwiches to entrees it was almost a struggle to pick which ones I wanted to try first. See all the Jimmy Dean Lunch & Dinner options here. Which would you pick?!

I let my big pregnant belly do the talking though and filled my basket with several entrees including a Southwest Style Grilled Chicken bowl, Three Cheese Pasta (grown up Mac & Cheese, my fav!), and Pulled Chicken sandwiches all from the Jimmy Dean Delights {in other words, light and healthy!} selection and a Golden Roasted Chicken with peppers and onions from their regular entree options.

Being a Texas girl at heart though I have MISSED having good barbeque at my fingertips. Since I knew one of these entrees was definitely going to me my lunch that day I decided that the pulled chicken sliders were going to be the perfect quick and easy lunch. These were part of the Jimmy Dean Delights selection which all have under 300 calories and are packed with protein making this lunch a delicious and wholesome choice.

Since I was running a million directions while the kids were at school that day, this was the perfect choice for lunch. I popped the two sliders in the microwave for a couple of minutes and was treated to piping hot chicken smothered in sweet barbeque sauce on fluffy little wheat buns. I added some of my favorite potato chips and a small salad and I felt like I had a gourmet lunch like I hadn’t eaten in ages! And oh, that barbeque hit the spot!
