There are a million and one ways that dinner time is a battle in our house, the least of which is what I can possibly make that everyone will actually EAT. Trying to please one picky toddler is enough, throw in a baby who has recently started solids, a pre-schooler on a food strike, and a husband with an adult palate and you've got a real challenge on your hands. We've posted before about Bunching-friendly bites, but I stumbled upon another hit today. All children consumed even the vegetables and Baby was shoveling it in so fast he was grabbing it off his brother's plate. Another hit is one of Linda's favorites - Last Minute Lasagna. Please share your recipe successes - we can always use fresh ideas!
Peanut Chicken Satay
Cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks. Soak wooden skewers in water. Get a large ziploc bag and combine:
2T peanut butter
2T soy sauce
1T rice vinegar
Throw chicken chunks in the bag and marinate for half an hour. Put chicken on skewers and throw under the broiler for 7 minutes. Flip and broil for another 7 minutes. I served it with jasmine rice and steamed broccoli.
