As my kids get older they get pickier. Frankly I find it a little irritating that their requests stay the same-hot dogs, pizza, mac n’ cheese…
But I have to remind myself that our palates evolve and expand as we get older. So even though I may end up serving a couple hot dogs on the side, I still do try to expose the boys to different foods. And once in a while they surprise me like with this Orange & Curry Glazed Chicken. My five year old have three helpings. Yay!!
…So when you feel completely dejected that your kids once again turn up their noses and push away their plates before even trying something- don’t give up! Ask that they have at least one “no thank you bite” and maybe there’s that 10% chance that their grimace will turn into a smile of delight
BTW-Thank you to the awesome teachers at the YMCA for introducing us to the “no than you bite.” Love it!
Happy chilly fall day!
Here’s What You Need: Serves 2 adults and 2 small kids (So double if you want more!)
Here’s What You Do:
Make sauce by whisking the first 4 ingredients. Chop the chicken into bite size pieces and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add 1-2 capfuls of evoo to a pan over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 6-8 minutes, flipping once*. Add in the sauce and cook for 4 minutes more or until it becomes thicker. Spoon the extra sauce over the chicken. Serve with basmati or Jasmine rice and cilantro.
*In order to brown the chicken, if you have more than three breasts cook the pieces in batches. Otherwise they will steam.
