January is always a month that seems the most difficult. It’s cold and dreary and it’s just after Christmas. I always feel that the Christmas season is over far too soon.
I was recently asked if I wanted to take part in a Back to Normal Campaign with McCain and Mumsnet and I jumped at the opportunity as we do love the McCain fries and I’m constantly on the look out for quick fixes for dinner. That are healthy and delicious too and do not involve buying takeaway. 🙂
I decided to try out the Sweet Chilli Chicken from a recipe by Holly Bell and here it is if you would like to try it out yourself –
I found this so easy to do and it went down a treat with the kids. They liked the crispy sweet potato fries from McCain. We had previously always tried the potato fries but I think this is going to be a preference now.
I liked how convenient it was as the children could still enjoy a good meal while I went through minimum trouble. Nothing to peel and chop and cut. 🙂
It was ready in about 20 minutes from start to end and that’s the kind of time that I like. It leaves me free to look at homework with the children too.
My top tip – I always have frozen McCain fries at home as I find them so easy to use for any meal as a side. They are also perfect for adding bulk to a meal when you have unexpected guests. And they taste so good too.
Here’s a video to show how easy it is –
