Chicken Tonight and Ragu loveliness

As a mum of two young boys time is always of an essence, if you leave them too long together it slowly and gradually turns into an episode of Wrestle Mania!  So meals that can be prepared much faster result in a much less frazzled mum here!

I am not a great cook, I lack inspiration and I am prone to burning things.  I have even cooked a knife by accident, I put holes in the sausages and then forgot to take it out, end result plastic coated sausage not very gourmet!

So I was so happy to see this lovely hamper arrive courtesy of Chicken Tonight and Ragu.  It was just what I needed to create delicious meals with minimum fuss.

From the Ragu selection we have been enjoying bolognaise, lasagne and scrumptious pasta meals.  

It has all been mouth-watering and I love the flavours.  

Between the Chicken Tonight sauces and the Ragu I have barely wanted to live on any other meals!!!  I will leave preparing meals from scratch until the boys are older and calmer and I have more time.  I say this but when you can buy their very affordable jars and sachets it would be difficult to spend out on lots of ingredients even when the boys are happy for me to cook!

I am particularly impressed with the Chicken Tonight ‘Simply Bag & Bake’ as it’s a great way to incorporate appetizing flavours into your cooking for only £1.39.  It comes with a cooking bag and the seasoning so very simple to create tasty chicken dishes.

From the press release it said the average family meal takes around 50 minutes to prepare (I think they omitted my beans on toast stable we love so much!), but it is true if you were chopping and dicing you could easily pass that time in a blur or you could simply open a tasty jar, pour and simmer, using the saved time wisely to catch up on other things you like doing (for me refereeing the boys but for others this could be reading a chapter of your book or watching a much loved episode!).

Chicken Tonight and Ragu are both available from all major supermarkets.
