3. Chicken Pizza
A friend of mine gave me this recipe, swearing that she got her 5 year old to eat anything else other than hot dogs and fried chicken. Clean and cube 2 boneless chicken breasts (preferably skinless, so that it would be healthier); marinate in hot sauce or barbecue sauce. Heat 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add chicken when hot and cook until done. While you’re waiting for the chicken to cook, bake your pizza dough (my friend buys canned pizza dough instead of making one from scratch), 8 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. After baking, top pizza crust with mozzarella cheese and the cooked chicken, then put some additional sauce (hot sauce or barbecue sauce). Put it back in the oven for an additional 3 to 5 minutes – this is to melt the cheese and to finish browning the crust a little. This is optional, but you can try serving it with a small cup of blue cheese dressing on the side for dipping.
Three healthy, simple meals that your kids will surely love. And at the same time of loving it, they do not realize that they’ve just eaten a lot of extra nutrients that only a mother’s loving, cooking hand can give him.
