Chicken Fries & Avocado Ranch Dip

 Chicken Fries & Avocado Ranch Dip

I’m a mom to a pre-teen wah…  between his man-like always hungry eating habits and his busy after school schedule,  my kid is growing up way too fast .  I have to be prepared for 5 days a week of afternoon chaos.

After school snacks, early dinners before practice and then an after we get home meal.

That’s a  lot of eating for a good 5 hour time span, but my active pre-teen is always starving.

The pressed for time chaos means I need to get creative with meals that will satisfy his hunger and keep me out of the kitchen long enough to do other things.  Enter my monthly trip to Sams Club to restock for the perfect creative snack and dinner meals for my family of five.  I have to say one of my kids favorite parts of Sams shopping is the in-store taste demos.  Friday was no exception to the in-store demos.  We made our way to my favorite part of Sams {the freezer section} for a few pop in the oven meals.  Homestyle chicken fries was all the rage.  They look like french fries and what kid can pass up fries.  The breaded chicken fries makes a great  meal in itself and snack.

We hurried home, because as always it is an evening of another two hour baseball practice.  Tyson Homestyle Chicken Fries came to our rescue.  This boy was super excited to get these in the oven for a quick meal.

As the chicken fries cooked, I made my favorite easy Avocado Ranch Dip to go with them.  Believe it or not I don’t have big ketchup fans.  We love ranch dip and avocado, the first time I tried this recipe I was hooked and in has turned into our go to dip.

Mash up the avocado, add 8 ounce sour cream and ranch packet.  Mix until a nice creamy sauce.  *If you are using a plain ranch packet, I add a bit of lemon juice to balance the flavor.
