BBQ Chicken
Smashed LI Potatoes
Sautéed Carrots
Fresh Fruit Salad

I believe this is some kind of frozen Tyson product.  It is supposed to be Tyson's "dark meat strips with grill marks" which have 7g of fat and 340mg of sodium, Ingredients are: Boneless, skinless chicken leg meat, water, seasoning (dextrose, salt, brown sugar, chicken stock, maltodextrin, flavors, yeast extract, molasses, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate), soy protein concentrate, modified food starch, sodium phosphates. BUT we have also received diced chicken 
breast from both Tyson and a company called Pierce.  We have also received  a USDA commodity chicken from Tyson and it is described as "fully cooked boneless skinless chicken dark meat chicken fajita strips -smoke flavor added." Here are the ingredients: "Chicken dark meat, water, seasoning [salt, spices, dehydrated garlic, dehydrated onion, sugar, chili powder (chili pepper, cumin, oregano, salt, garlic powder), lemon juice powder (corn syrup solids, lemon juice, lemon oil), modified corn starch, natural mesquite smoke flavor (maltodextrin, natural smoke flavor), natural flavor 
(from partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oil)], modified food starch and sodium phosphates." The "partially hydrogenated" oil is a source of trans fat. Chicken has 7g of fat (2 of which are saturated) and 490 mg of sodium. Read more about farm animals raised by industrial giants like Tyson, antibiotics and 

The Smashed LI Potatoes are also new.
