Tell me if this sounds familiar. You decide to make better food choices for yourself, and then you get busy as the week goes on. By Wednesday, you are grabbing a bag of chips on your way out the door because you didn't have anything else to grab. You could have swung into that trendy drive-through to pick up a Deli Style Protein Box, but those are expensive. Stop sabotaging yourself! Spend less than 5 minutes to make your own Simple Deli Style Protein Box for Less!
You have to grab a few things at the store to make this work. While you are at Publix, put up some of this delicious Tyson® Refrigerated Fully Cooked Chicken. It used to be called Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Refrigerated Fully Cooked Chicken and had a different package, so don't get confused. This is the same chicken you love but even better! It has a bigger package (12oz), it now has a zip-top, they improved the quality, and you are getting a better price per ounce!

I used these plastic reusable food storage containers for my protein box. You can also buy some great meal prep containers that are reusable. To assemble your protein boxes, you will also need some other ingredients. Choose 4-5 items to fill your box with along with one dip. This will give you some snacking variety, and you won't get bored with your eating. This time I chose Tyson® Refrigerated Fully Cooked Chicken Strips, Hummus, Pretzels, Grapes, and Sliced Sweet Peppers. Check out the list below for some great ideas. Pick ingredients that your family will enjoy!

My favorite thing about these Deli Style Protein Boxes is that when you make them at home, you can put your favorite things inside of them. You don't have to settle for anything that you don't care for. Plus, I love the ease of using the Tyson® Refrigerated Fully Cooked Chicken. There is no mess in the kitchen. It is cooked to perfection and tastes amazing! The cost savings is unbelievable too! One of these grab & go boxes can cost over $4 - $5 when you are purchasing them ready-made, if not more. You can make several of these for the cost of just one when you are creating your own.
On grocery day, prep ahead and make 4 or 5 of these. Just seal them up, and keep them in the fridge for the busy week ahead. You might want to make a few extras. My kids have been known to want my Protein Box for their lunch too! Kids love these as much as adults do! I can't tell you how many times these have saved me on days where I just didn't have time to make something to eat. Go now to pick up your Tyson® Refrigerated Fully Cooked Chicken at Publix and see just how easy it is to make your own Simple Deli Style Protein Box for Less.
