Tyson launches lower-sodium chicken

This month, Tyson Foods replaces its existing meal kits with a new, lower-sodium frozen entrĂ©e line called Tyson Skillet Creations, offering consumers convenience and “sensible” sodium content.

Tyson is teaming up with Food Network host Robin Miller to promote the products, which contain 45% less sodium than previous Tyson meal kits, taking only 10 minutes to prepare.

Meal kits are available in 5 varieties: Grilled Chicken Fajitas, Grilled Steak Fajitas, Grilled Chicken Tuscany & Penne, Asian Style Orange Chicken and Stroganoff, and suggested retail price is US$7.99.

“With more than 70% of Americans exceeding the daily recommended amount of sodium consumption, Tyson Foods understands the importance of providing home-cooked meal solutions that feature sensible sodium levels without sacrificing great taste,” said Rachel Marler, Tyson’s director of marketing. “Our exciting new line of Skillet Creations meal kits allows busy couples to easily prepare classically gourmet, high-quality meals at home without high sodium levels.”
