Last week I found myself in a bind. Saturday evenings we spend at the hockey rink. If we’re lucky, there’s some type of break at a decent hour so that we can have supper.

My girls were sick that night so I stayed home which gave me time to pull together a quick supper instead of the usual run through In-N-Out Burger. I had a batch of homemade rolls and a package of chicken tenders. I also didn’t have a lot of time.

I could have grilled them quickly, but I have a child who had a bad experience with BBQ lava rocks exploding into his chicken years ago. He has a hard time disassociating that experience from our current situation with a better and different type of BBQ. Needless to say, grilled chicken is not his favorite.

But, I digress.

Instead I poached the chicken simply in water, pulled it to shred and then seasoned it with Jamie’s Spice Mix. The result was a flavorful and easy meal that we’ll be having again and again, especially as the summer months approach and Sandwich Night takes over for Soup Night.

You can cook the chicken anyway you like, but I’ve written this recipe for poaching which allows you to cook it on the stovetop.

Serve the chicken in lettuce wraps for a low-carb/Whole 30 meal.

  1. This sounds like the perfect meal for lacrosse nights! I have been looking for a summery easy to tote meal. I’ll add some veggie dippers and we’ll be good. Thanks again!

  2. I love the easy yet tasty recipes you post here. I hope your kids are fine now.

  3. Never thought about poaching anything but a roasting chicken before? Are the tenders the frozen kind from a bag or fresh?

    • I typically buy them fresh. I usu do a whole chicken in the slow cooker, bone-in breasts in the oven, and boneless on the grill or poached. 🙂

  4. Would you mind posting how to make those rolls?

  5. We had these for dinner tonight and OH MY! they were so good! These are for sure on my go to list in the future. The spice mix totally made them! I am looking forward to using it on more things in the future.

    • Having your own spice blends is such a lifesaver. You can use them on anything. I use them a lot for salad dressings and to season meats. Glad you liked the sandwiches!

  6. I’ve been looking for a way to cut our grocery budget and put more towards being debt free faster! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing all of your wonderful ideas and menus with us and FOR FREE! You’ve blessed our family beyond words!

    I do have a question though, how would you adjust the poaching time using TJ’s frozen chicken tenders?

    Thank you again!!!

    How much of the spice mix do you use?

    These are great!! I know that you shop at Trader Joes’s….how would Aldi’s be in comparison?

  9. I know readers have shopped the plans at Aldi with great success. We don’t have that store here so I don’t have personal experience.
