I’m the type if mom that plans out the family meals for the week to include homemade mashed potatoes & mac and cheese and made from scratch pizza dough. I like being able to prepare balanced meals that everyone will enjoy. But that doesn’t mean I’m not the first to admit I rely in some cheats to get me through a busy week.
Tyson is definitely one of our go-to brands for convenience foods for these exact moments. Another reason I’m stocking up on Tyson favorites right now is the introduction of their Project A+ program for schools.
The Tyson Project A+™ program is one of the simplest ways to support your school. Just clip and redeem Tyson Project A+ labels from packages of Tyson® products. For every label we receive, we’ll give your school 24¢ – and your school can use the money for whatever it needs.
These funds can be used school trips, school supplies, musical instruments, athletic gear and more. Schools everyday are faced with budget cuts and the decision on what academic or extracurricular activity is going to have to suffer. Getting started is simple. Register your school, assign or volunteer as the administrator for the program and educate the families to clip and save the labels to cash in for CASH. Set goals, make it a competition, spread the word, engage the families. Do whatever it takes to #Clip4School.
Tyson Foods is stepping up and giving schools and their communities the chance to make a difference by doing what they already do, shop for groceries to feed their families.
My grocery list usually consists of the things we need to get through the week but I like to toss in some “just in case” items such as Chicken Nuggets, Chicken Fries or Chicken Wings in case our dinner plans have gone awry.
I used Tyson Foods Crispy Chicken Strips for a new meal idea, a twist on Chicken Parmesan.
Chicken Parmesan Pockets
- Crispy Chicken Strips (25oz package)
- 2 tubes of refrigerated Pizza Dough
- Italian Blend Shredded Cheese
- Pasta or Pizza Sauce
Start by cooking chicken strips according to package directions. Divide each pizza dough into 6 pieces and roll out into 6×8″ rectangles.
Chop cooked chicken into bite size pieces place a small handful on each rectangle of dough and top with sauce and cheese.
Pull up the corners to the top and press edges onto each other to seal closed.
Bake for 12-18 minutes until golden brown. Serve with extra sauce and veggies for a balanced meal.
Modify this recipe to suit your family’s tastes by adding roasted red peppers, chunk mozzarella, spicy marinara or Tyson Food Grilled Chicken Strips instead.
