Life on the go is business as usual for a busy parent. Over time I’ve learned tricks to help me ensure my family eats well along with getting things done. As a father of second grader, preschooler as well as full time employee my day is full of car rides and errands. My family doesn’t usually have a lot of time to prepare extensive meals so we are huge fans of effortless meals. We often find ways to make secondary meals or snacks out of leftovers.


I’ve become quite fond of the Marketside rotisserie chickens, pizza and sandwiches from Walmart. They are convenient to purchase with healthy, fresh options for dinner time. You can find rotisserie chicken, side and Coke as a part of the Effortless Meals bundle/package. I’m also able to recreate family favorite meals and snacks for the kids. The best part of picking up a Marketside rotisserie chicken is that they are fully cooked as well as tasty, all I have to do is pick up a side along with my favorite Coke products for drinks and dinner is served.
Anytime we feast on a rotisserie chicken from the marketside, we make sure to leave some on the side for empanadas the next day. They are simple to make and take almost no time to prepare. We simply shred any leftover chicken, insert into empanada disk with cheese or side ingredients as desired and drop in the fryer after sealing.
