A Disruptive Innovation

Tyson® Mini Chicken Bites help operators attract customers with a totally different eating experience,” says Matt Earley, Senior Manager, Poultry Innovation Foodservice at Tyson Foods. “It’s a whole muscle with a breading that delivers the perfect balance of crispy, crunchy, savory, juicy and tender.” Adds Earley, “There’s nothing like it.”


Fully Cooked for Easy Prep

Reducing time and labor were important factors in the product’s development. They’re really easy to use–especially for pizza operators who require fully cooked items as toppings. Earley says, “Fully cooked means less back-of-house concern. No worries of specialized training. It makes it so much easier to menu chef-quality dishes customers want.”

Create Novelty While Saving on Costs

With consumers on average ordering unique items from restaurants more that 25% of the time,2 Tyson® Mini Chicken Bites give you a fun new way to level up menus and dayparts. Says Earley, “Using this ingredient on chicken pizza and as a topping on salads are a given. But there are so many other ways for operators to get creative. Shareables. Protein Bowls. Flatbreads. On-the-go. The possibilities are seemingly endless.”
