Easy Chicken and Bacon Turnovers

The kids always come home from school ravenous. Sound familiar? I frequently try to stick some crackers or something small their way, but I have found that they end up in the kitchen not 20 minutes later, looking for something else to eat. So, I’ve come up with a plan. Instead of having the kids graze for an hour or two after school, I need more substantial snacks to offer them. I’m going to show you how I create Easy Chicken and Bacon Turnovers, all while helping raise money for our school!

Tyson Project A+ Label

I’m sure you’re wondering how cooking can raise money for your school. It’s really quite simple. By purchasing participating Tyson® products, which can be purchased at Walmart, Tyson has agreed to donate money to the school of your choice. This is all part of the Tyson Project A+™ program. Simply cut the label from participating Tyson® packages and submit. For every label submitted, Tyson® will give your school $.24.  That could really add up, simply by shopping for items your family can cook with, and turning in the proof!

Now that I’ve shown you how you can easily raise money for your kids’ school, it’s time to feed those hungry bellies. I personally love homemade turnovers and hot pockets because they are easy, you can change up the ingredients for different flavors, and they’re quite affordable. 

Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips

To aid in the Tyson Project A+™ program, and to make snack time extra easy, I use Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips. They are pre-cooked so they just need to be thawed and/or slightly heated up, before going into my turnovers. You have a couple of options for the dough. Depending on what’s on sale, or what I have on hand, I will use biscuits and roll them out flat, or  I use puff pastry.  The latter is my personal favorite, as it creates a nice flaky crust. Either way works, depending on your preference and ease.

For the inside, I place the defrosted, and heated, Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips, chopped cooked bacon, homemade ranch dressing and shredded mozzarella cheese. Fold dough over and seal up the edges, and bake on a cookie sheet. Voila, a filling snack the kids will love, and their school gets a little of their own dough!
