Kids in the KitchenAs I mentioned last week, I was the camp cook for a week long girls camp for our church and it was a wonderful experience.  It was an overwhelming amount of work, but now that it is over, I can honestly say it was fun 🙂

This experience had me pulling out all my best catering experiences and skills to menu plan the best I could, but we did end up with some leftover food at the end of the week.  In my opinion, it it is always better to have a bit more food than not enough….especially when we are talking about hungry teenage girls!
Grilled California Chicken WrapsThe majority of the leftover food was given to a few families who could use a little extra love and attention right now in their lives and they were all very grateful.  After all that food was given out, I was left a few small parts of camp meals still in my fridge.  Hmmmmm…..It was time to let my kids get creative with the panini press.  Hands down, it is their favorite small kitchen appliance.

These California Chicken Wraps took some leftovers that were quite boring all on their own and turned them into something magical!  My 10 year old made a bunch of them for dinner and even got my pickiest eater (my 4 year old) to give them a taste.  Once that initial battle of “just taking a bite” was conquered, she willingly ate the rest of her dinner on her own.  Whew!DSC_0076Kids in the Kitchen Secret #10 – Teach your kids to be creative with leftovers!  They can be so much more than something to just stick in the microwave to reheat!

  • Flour tortillas
  • Leftover chicken, chopped
  • Shredded cheese
  • Real bacon bits (please no fake stuff!)
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Chopped green onion
  • Ranch dressing


  1. Preheat your panini press or just a flat electric griddle. Spread 1 Tb of ranch dressing on one side of the tortilla and lay the chopped chicken evenly down the center. Top with the remaining ingredients and then tightly wrap up all the ingredients inside the tortilla. Grill until golden brown and slice in half to serve.

Excellent. Chicken has to be moist, but mine is always.
