#ad Chicken Bacon Ranch Ciabatta with Tyson Grilled & Ready #ClipForSchool #cbias

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias® and their client. All opinions are honest and are my own.

Even though we homeschool, the end of summer always signals "back to school" for our family.  We begin wrapping up the summer and planning for an organized fall season. One way I keep my family in a routine is by making sure there's always something in the cupboards to make for meals---even quick ones.  My Chicken Bacon Ranch Ciabatta was easy to make using Tyson's Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips.  

For this quick dinner idea, you'll need a bag of Grilled & Ready strips, a ciabatta roll, a couple slices of cooked bacon, some ranch dressing, and some extra fixings like lettuce, tomato, pepper jack cheese, and red onion.  Assemble it and enjoy!

I have used Tyson's Grilled & Ready Chicken Strips for awhile now as a solution when I don't have time for the extra step of preparing meat. There's often a bag in my fridge or freezer---and now I can also help my local schools out when I buy them!  Visit my Google+ Album for more about my trip to Safeway to shop for these.

Did you know that Tyson has a program to benefit your area's schools?  By participating in the Tyson's Back to School Project A+ Program, you can earn 24 cents per label for your school---that's a lot more than other school donation programs!

When shopping for Tyson products, look on the front, back, and sides of the packaging to see if the product you're buying is a participating product.  Here is a list of all participating Tyson products.

Signing up your school is easy!  First, go to the Project A+ website, find the "Get Started" button on the right side bar and see if your school is already signed up.

If not, you can sign them up quickly and easily. I was excited to see that homeschool associations are eligible to participate in this program. In fact, the Tyson Project A+ Program is open to all accredited schools in the US, including public, private, parochial, homeschool organizations, and military schools (both here and overseas).

Once your registration is processed, it's just a matter of getting the word out to your community to let them know to start collecting Tyson labels.  The coordinator will gather them up and send them in and Tyson will redeem 24 cents for each one.  This is a great way to earn some money for your school!

If you shop at Safeway, like I did, you can also add a donation to your local school by signing up for Safeway's Back to School 10% School Donation program.  When you use your Safeway card during check out, 10% goes back to schools! Visit their website and follow the easy directions to get your school registered and ready to earn some much needed cash back!

Just look for the special yellow Back to School tag on some of your favorite products at Safeway and, for a limited time, Safeway will donate to the school you've indicated during your registration process.

In our homeschool association, we like to provide scholarships to families in need, as well as purchase equipment for our many outdoor activities throughout the year.  The Tyson Project A+ Program is a great way to help earn the money we'll need to accomplish this.

  5. This looks really good, Sarah, and I just love Tyson for helping out with so many different schools. I'm glad you were able to sign your homeschool up and get the donations rolling!

  6. Looks great! It's nearing lunch time and you are just tempting me. :-)

  8. Looks very good!
    Thanks for sharing your recipe with the HomeAcre Hop!
    Hope you join in again on Thursday.

  9. Sarah, I had never bought Tyson chicken strips before but a couple weeks ago I cooked chicken for a baby shower. I was a little worried that I didn't have enough so I bought some just in case. We didn't need it that night, but I've used it since and it is really good. Moist, tender, and juicy. Your Ciabalta sandwich sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  10. I am so GLAD that you shared this over at WholeHearted Home this past week...here's why: I made this for supper that night that I left a comment but didn't Pin it!! UGH!! Then I forgot where I found it!! UGH!! I made it with what I had on hand...which was boneless chicken strips and it was delicious and quite the hit. Now,before I forget I am going to Pin it!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read each one of them and love to respond back to those who visit! Please consider signing up for EMAIL NOTICES so you'll have a reminder of our weekly HOMEMAKING PARTY---and more! Have a wonderful day!

Mrs. Sarah Coller
