With back to school season quickly approaching, I’m already dreading the craziness that comes with this time of year! With Aimery back in school and all of us adjusting to new schedules, it’s more important than ever to make time for family dinner. Growing up, my family always made time for each other at the end of most nights, and that is definitely something I want to continue doing with Aims! I’m looking forward to dinner time with my family, even though sometimes it can be stressful to throw together with school, late work nights, and soccer practice taking over our fall routines. I would rather find meals that take under 30 minutes than to be away from Aimery for hours preparing a meal! It can be hard to find quick meal ideas, so I’m always on the lookout for easy meals to throw together and are great for my family!

We recently found a really good dinner time option that takes under 20 minutes to cook and that Aimery loves! Tyson® Any’tizers® Chicken Fries have been a go to for our family! They are almost like chicken tenders but better… shaped as fries! Yum! Not only are they kid friendly, but being able to pick them up at PriceRite makes them even more convenient and affordable for all of our back to school mealtime needs. Aimery is getting older and going through a phase where he wants to be independent, especially during meal times. He loves when I make Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries because they’re snackable and easy for him to eat. As a mom, I am very cautious about the meals I make for my family, but I feel great knowing that Tyson chicken is raised with no antibiotics ever!

Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries make a great protein packed snack on their own or can be incorporated into a crave-worthy recipe for family dinners. They are perfect for a quick lunch, after soccer-practice snack, or paired with mac & cheese and broccoli for dinner! There are so many diverse ways to eat Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries, but our family’s favorite is with our homemade Sweet Tangy Dipping Sauce! We created this sauce after being inspired by one of our favorite restaurants signature sauces. It’s not the exact sauce, but it has to be close! This dipping sauce is great for any meal, whether we are grilling or eating our favorite Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries! And with six ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge, you should be able to try it out at home! If you do, be sure to leave a review below and share how you adjusted it to taste. Here’s our recipe!

How are you planning on making time for family dinner night this upcoming school year while spending time with your family? You can find these and other great Tyson  products (the Tyson Chicken Nuggets are a fan favorite in our home as well), in the frozen section of your local PriceRite near the chicken products! Even on the busiest nights, we love being able to spend time together over our favorite Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries. All we need to do is come home, pop them in the oven, and dinner is served! Sounds like an easy way to start the school year to me.
