If your kids are anything like mine they love some chicken nuggets. Tyson® Any’tizers® Chicken Fries are also a big favorite. I love that they are easy to make and a great protein snack solution to the “what should we eat” after school or even for dinner. They take little effort to make and if you pair them with my pizza dipping sauce then it gives your kids a nod to their other favorite food, pizza. It is also a favorite of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
This sauce is so easy to whip together. I picked up all of the ingredients at Walmart while I stocked up on Tyson® Chicken Nuggets and Any’tizers® Chicken Fries. See, my son likes the nuggets while my daughter likes the Chicken Fries. She wants hers cut up so that she can eat it with a fork and so she can dip without getting her hands dirty. The Tyson® product lines bring a protein snack solution for your family that takes little effort to quickly heat up in the microwave or in a saucepan on the stove.
The pizza dipping sauce is also quick and easy to make. It is just tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, and a little Italian Seasoning. Now if your kids are more adventurous you can add more pizza toppings to the dip like pepperoni, olives, and even some cheese. Warm the pizza dipping sauce in either the oven or the microwave and your kids will be set with their after-school protein snack solution.
I think the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would approve of having a quality protein snack with a dip inspired by their favorite food to eat in the movies of pizza. I could see Donatello coming up with a recipe like this since he likes to invent. I can’t wait to see what they are going to do in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows in theaters now. Do you think you will go see it? Buy any 2 participating Tyson®, Ball Park®, State Fair®, or Jimmy Dean® products at Walmart, snap a picture of your receipt, and get a movie ticket to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. How cool is that??
Make sure you get fueled before you go see the movie with my protein snack solution of Tyson® Chicken Nuggets and pizza dipping sauce. You can make snack time fun by printing up some masks for your kids to wear while they eat. Or you can serve the snacks on green plates.
