Simply Chicken – Quick and Easy Meals

Simply Chicken – Quick and Easy Meals

I was approached by Simply Chicken, a brand of Rainbow Chicken to do a blog article using their ready made crumbed chicken nuggets and steaklets.

I prepared 2 recipes using their products, and wrote a little article about their product.

My aim was to target busy mums who are looking for quick and easy to prepare kids meals.
