Grilled Chicken Flatbread Two Ways

Grilled Chicken Flatbread Two Ways

We’re soaking in the last lazy days of summer…relishing the fact that I don’t have to care that no one is dressed, fed, or out of their jammies by 8:30 AM — the normal time when the bus comes cruising through the neighborhood during the school year.

But it’s time to prepare for a shift to a more regimented schedule—school days are NO JOKE.

Especially when you add on those extracurricular activities.

My kiddos are both in school all day and then attend Taekwondo class 3-4 afternoons each week…and it takes A LOT to fuel these kiddos through their school day and then to power through an hour of Taekwondo.

We are past the point of fruit snacks, people. No granola bar is going to fit this energy bill.

THESE KIDS NEED FOOD.

Real food that I can whip up quickly, that they’ll happily gobble up, and that is made from pantry staples that I always have around—the sort of pantry staples that I can find conveniently at a local Dollar General store! (Don’t miss our $50 Dollar General gift card giveaway at the end of this post.)

Like these Grilled Chicken Flatbreads.

The key to the handy dandy nature of these snacks are the fact that I used Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken. They are precooked, so warming them up in a takes no time (3-4 minutes) and I can pull out just a few pieces and go about my merry business. That means that I can get these delicious flatbread in the hungry hands of my kids in about 6-7 minutes. BOOM.

And because my kids like the illusion of variety, I have two versions — a BBQ Cheddar and a Chicken Parmesan.

Because our schedule is tight, I use the minutes before the afternoon school bus arrives to prep these so they are toasty and ready when the kiddos come barreling through the door. That way they have time to sit down, enjoy their snack, decompress from the day a bit, and get ready for the next part of the day.

You can pick up a whole basket full of handy and delicious Tyson® and Jimmy Dean® products from Dollar General that can help you get yummy food into the bellies of you and your family, even when your school day schedule is BANANAS.
