Kids in the Kitchen

As I have mentioned before, I hire my kiddos to make dinner but they don’t get paid just to make the food. They have to pick the recipe, create a shopping list and then come with me to shop for the food that they need.

One of my major goals is for them to be able to get the biggest bang out of their food budgets once they leave home and have to support themselves. Food costs are out of control and I want them to be rockstars when it comes to creating delicious food from scratch that costs a fraction of all the prepared junk out there.

How grateful will our kids be when they have those food skills and can use their hard earned money for more important and pressing demands?

Kids in the Kitchen Secret #7:   Once your kids pick a recipe they would like to make, help them create a shopping list of ingredients then take them with you to the store so they learn how to grocery shop!

creamy chicken and rice bake

Chicken and rice bake was a staple in my hubby’s home growing up, however I was never a fan of it for many years.  I found it dry and really boring.  However, knowing that it was one of my hubby’s comfort foods that reminded him of his childhood, I came up with this recipe about 12 years ago so I could enjoy it as well 🙂  It is one of my kids favorites to make for dinner because it is so easy to throw together and everyone loves the creamy rice and tender chicken.  Nothing dry and boring with this recipe!!!!

Can I use minute rice and shorten the baketime

Hey Mary! I wouldn’t make that substitution. The chicken needs that long to bake as well as the rice.
