In an effort to spend more time with my kids one on one, and to hopefully get them eating better, I assigned the 3 older kids a meal they must help prepare. Princess C was given breakfast since she is usually the first one awake. Princess R helps me with lunch, because sandwiches are easy for an independent 3 year old to handle. Last Princess V as the oldest, and most picky child, is helping me make our dinners.
Wednesday night I knew I wanted breaded chicken, but I decided to let Princess V choose the spices. We grabbed our spice turn and began smelling the spices, until she had a combination of smells she enjoyed. Enjoy this very tasty chicken made by a 6 year old chef in training!
