Earn Money for Your School With Tyson Project A+™

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and text are all mine.

Yesterday I shared an easy and delicious recipe using Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips. They are real chicken strips that come pre-cooked, so they save you a ton of time in the kitchen and you never have to sacrifice family meal time.


I mentioned in that post that they are a participating product in the Tyson Project A+™ program.

Everyone's heard of boxtops, but did you know there's another way to earn money for your school just by saving labels off of food that you already buy?

Here's a picture of the label on the back of the package I purchased at Walmart:


Just clip off that little white square and send it in to your kids' school. Easy peasy!

I have two children attending our local school and it's important to me to try to support their education any way that I can. I want our school to have as much funding as possible so that my kids can have memorable, enriching experiences. School plays, music, art, special activities... the "extras" are so important! I'll definitely be clipping labels from my favorite Tyson® products.

You can get your school involved by following these easy steps:

1. Visit Walmart.com/ProjectA+
2. Nominate your school by sharing why your school needs a head start on collecting
Tyson Project A+™ labels.
3. Once you submit your reason, you will get the option to share your post on your
OWN social feeds to drive your community’s involvement.
4. The school with the most nominations will receive a packet of labels worth $1,000
to help their school get a head start on collecting Tyson Project A+™ labels.

What would your school do with an extra $1000?

Cheesy Chicken Sandwiches with Garlic Parmesan Aoli (A Ten Minute Meal!!)

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and text are all mine.

We have been swamped around here lately and it's only going to get crazier once school starts. When I get busy and stressed, I have to let some things slide. Usually it's the housework. Ha! But one thing that is really important to me is sitting down to dinner every night with my family. No matter how nuts it gets, I try to make home-cooked, nutritious food.

Want to know one of my secret weapons? Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips! They are 100% all-natural and made with all-white meat. They are 97% fat free, and the best part... they are fully-cooked!

I recently stopped at Walmart to buy spray paint and I knew it was going to be a busy night, so I also bought everything I needed to make one of our favorite dinners: Cheesy Chicken Sandwiches with Garlic Parmesan Aoli. And guess what? With the help of  Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips, it only took 10 minutes to prepare!


Here are the ingredients you will need:


Cheesy Chicken Sandwiches with Garlic Parmesan Aoli

Ready in 10 minutes
Makes 6 sandwiches

2 packages Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips
1/2 cup mayonaise
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3 Roma tomatos, sliced
1 handful spinach
1+ cup shredded Italian cheese blend (or mozzarella)
1 package hoagie buns

Start by mixing the mayo, parmesan and garlic together. This is your aoli. Place buns on baking sheet and spread evenly with aoli. Broil until bread just barely starts to brown around the edges.


Layer the spinach, tomato, chicken, then cheese.


Broil until the sandwich is heated through and the cheese is nice and melty. And don't forget to turn off the broiler when you're done!


Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips are moist, delicious, and so easy. This is what they look like out of the package:


If family dinners are important to you, but you are low on time, you should give them a try!

Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips qualify for the Tyson Project A+™. You save labels off of participating Tyson® products and turn them in to earn money for your school! I'll give you all the details tomorrow, because really, who doesn't want to earn money to help schools?!
