    We crunch them up and mix with grated cheese and then top chicken breasts with them, cook in the oven... really yummy!

    I do something similar - cut chicken breast fillets in 2, then coat in flour, beaten egg, followed by crushed crisps. Takes about 25 minutes at 210C fan oven.

    Usually use cheese and onion flavour, but RS should be tasty too.

    3-4 bags needed for 600g chicken

    mmm nice idea. Could do chicken breasts in SC, then Top them and put under the Grill I guess.

    I suppose the Crisps should be ok for a couple more days at least, right?

    you will be fine for a good while yet. Just checked my crisps and they have a best before date - so you can comfortably go over, they just wont be as crisp after a while.

    I've had crisps months after the best before without adverse effects

    to be honest, as long as the packs are sealed they should be fine for weeks (if not months )
    the worst that will happen is them not being quite as crunchy as they should be

    We crush crisps and mix them with cheese to put on the top of pasta bakes, lasagnes, cottage pies etc.

    Very yummy and of course they can be a little out of date for this.

    Cheese and Onion crisps
    Hi All

    When I buy bags of multi-flavour crisps, it's always the cheese and onion ones that get left - rarely to be eaten, because no-one likes them and eventualy thrown out. What can I do with them please? They need to be disguised in some way that no-one will know I've used them up.
    Any ideas please?

    The best way to disguise crisps that I've found is to crumble them for toppings on pasta bakes, lasagna, shepards pie. Then lightly cover with grated cheese and place into the oven so that melts over them. You get a crunchy topping but it disguises the unwanted crisps.

    errrrrrrrrrrrrrr cheese and onion crisps hate them, loathe them they are the devils work. Always left in my house, used to give them to the ex h then when he tried to get in bed that night I would make him sleep in the spare room cos of the smell, he never did twig on why I always gave them to him.

    Now I give them my mum cos she loves them and I dont have to share a bed with her.

    Seems lots of people have this problem
    We always end up with smokey bacon, but I am not sure what could be done to get rid of the taste if noone really likes it.
    Even the smell of bacon crisps makes me feel ill, so I wouldn't use them with decent food! When I buy a multi pack with bacon in I always price the pack as minus the bacon ones, and see if they are still good value, as the bacon packs lie in the cupboard til they are out of date. The kids would rather eat fruit!

    It's only a game
