Simply add soft drinks (look out for some lower or no sugar options), a few DVDs and maybe a bean bag or two for the perfect family night in.

Cheesy Chicken Dippers with Nachos

Chicken dippers, cheese and nachos?! This is a winning combination that kids will love, and is perfect for tucking into on the sofa. The kidney beans, avocado and sour cream (or half fat crème fraiche for a healthier alternative) mixed together make a delicious, creamy and nutritious nacho sauce, that can be topped with melted cheese, salsa or jalapenos if you’re after a kick. Plus, our 100% chicken breast chicken dippers are the perfect hot and filling accompaniment.
 
Pizza is a classic movie meal – simple, deliciously tasty, easy to share and very versatile with toppings. So versatile, in fact, that we have placed Birds Eye Fish Fingers on top for a fish finger feast! We have fused together two tastes that were destined to be together.
