Poofy Cheeks: Chicken Taco Bake | 30 Minute Meal

Chicken Taco Bake | 30 Minute Meal

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and text are all mine.
 
School is officially in! I dropped the boys off for their first day on Monday and helped them carry their supplies to their classrooms before heading home and celebrating with a cupcake. Should I feel guilty for not tearing up or being all emotional? I spent the past three months trying to keep four kids entertained all day long and I was physically and mentally drained. I need school days and amazing  teachers in my life for real! I'm not feeling a bit guilty for my excitement and for all of you moms getting all emotional on me I'm not judging you because I know time is flying by and the days aren't getting any shorter! By the time I had to pick the boys up I had planned dinner, cleaned the entire upstairs and ran my errands. Can you say winning!?
 
Speaking of school supplies - I think those school supply lists are growing longer every year. Each of my boys needed 2-4 reams of copy paper, headphones, 12 glue sticks and multiple packages of the normal crayons, pencils and markers. Then I was reading through the packets of information sent home the first night and it says we will be responsible for printing their homework from home. I know our schools have faced lots of budget cuts lately and with everything becoming so technology based I guess that this is the next new thing. Wyatt is in second grade and half of his curriculum is technology based learning with tablets or computers. He is going to know more about electronics than I do soon. To help the boys' school earn money we have been buying Tyson® products with the Tyson Project A+™ coupons on them.
 
To keep my winning day going I took it easy on myself with a quick and easy dinner. I made Chicken Taco Bake which is easily one of the most liked meals in our house. Everyone eats it without a single complaint. You won't hear any complaining from me because it only takes 30 minutes including prep and cook time!! All I should have to say is taco, chicken and cheese and you guys should be drooling on your keyboards already.

Real quick - if you aren't familiar with the Tyson Project A+™ you can find the labels on numerous Tyson® products. For each label sent in participating schools can redeem the label for cash. Find out more about the program and nominating your school on the Walmart website.

The Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips I use to make the Chicken Taco Bake are in the freezer section. See the picture below - that is how we shop. Four kids (I was holding one) and two adults trying to keep reigns on everything that is put it the cart.

Here is the cast of characters needed to whip up the insanely easy Chicken Taco Bake. This dinner is great for busy school nights or would make the perfect new mom gift. Put all of the ingredients into a foil container, slap a bow on top and gift away!

See that chicken and that cheese? So yummy! When you pop it in the oven everything gets warm and bubbly. As you pull some from the dish the cheese makes those melty cheese strings and that is when I know it's about to go down. I like to use the Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips because they are made with 100% all natural, all white meat and 97% fat free. The strips are fully cooked so it just needs to bake long enough to heat everything through making this meal effortless.
