Sweet and Sour Chicken

11 Jul

I love when my sweet girls want to prepare dinner. I love not just the practical skills they are learning in the kitchen but also that they are building a sweet friendship. If you are looking for a yummy and easy dish…keep on reading for the printable recipe.

Get a baggie and add the corn starch and chicken.

Get your ‘shakin’ face on! Imperative for the best results.

Whisk up a couple of eggs.

Add your chicken to the egg mixture.

                                                                                                                              
                                                                                                     

Brown the chicken

 

I might be mixing up some extra sauce to pour over my rice 🙂

                                                                                                                               

My lovely assistant pouring the sauce over the chicken.

                                                                                                                                      

Throw some bell pepper in there…it’s the right thing to do!

                                                                                                                               

Voila! The sauce cooked onto the chicken beautifully. Here is my plate-steamed white rice (with a little extra sauce) topped with the glorious sticky chicken. Happiness on a plate!

                                                                                                                                 

Thumbs way up from my lovely assistants!

                                                                                                                                       

My sweet boys happily went back for seconds.

 
Delicious and simple!  We love it over hot steamed white rice.  We made extra sauce for the saucy lovers (ahem…mama).  Give it a try…I triple dog dare ya’…..and let me know what you think!  Thanks for visiting.

Shrek Sauce

11 Oct

Sometimes giving things a creative and yes, even gross names inspires little ones to try something new.  Shrek Sauce is nothing more than an avocado dip or spread. With a few variations to the recipe we enjoy this sauce as a sandwich spread or as an alternative to guacamole on burrito/taco night.

This is all you need! Of course adjust ingredients to suit your sized family or
occasion.
2 ripe avocado’s
1 Roma (Plum) tomato
3-4 Tbsp mayo (we used light)
garlic powder to taste
Slice each avocado in half and give the pit a good whack with the knife, give it a twist and the pit should come right out.
Scrape out the flesh of the avocados into a bowl and add the mayo. This is
a smooth sauce so I am using my emulsion blender. You
can use a hand mixer, potato masher, and if ripe enough, a fork.
Mix away until silky smooth.

                                                                               Finely dice the tomato and it and the garlic powder to
                                                   the bowl. I used about a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder but use as
                                                   much or as little as you like.

Serve with chips, spread on a tortilla, or use it as a sandwich spread.
*To use as a sandwich spread I use just the avocado, tomato and mayo.
