I don’t know if it because I’m so tired and busy with end of year activities but I’m getting increasingly unenthusiastic about cooking dinner at night. The kids are so hit and miss with what they will eat.
Last night I pulled out a few of my kid focused cookbooks and asked the kids to choose meals they would like me to cook next week. But even that seemed to be a pointless exercise as they can’t all agree on what meals they want. If Levi had his way we would have roast chicken every night and the girls just want pumpkin soup. Elliott would be happy with just vegemite sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Anyway I am just rambling as I have no solution and I can only assume I’m not alone.
Tonight I thought I would make a dinner that should please most kids. It pleased 3 out of 4 so that isn’t bad. Matilda is just not a meat lover. I served the chicken kebabs with jasmine rice and steamed greens. A pretty simple meal and almost everything was eaten. Hooray!
honey soy chicken kebabs
3 chicken breasts, cut into 2cm cubes
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup honey
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
10-12 bamboo skewers
Soak some bamboo skewers in water for an hour. Mix together the soy sauce, honey and garlic and pour over the chicken. Cover and pop in the fridge to marinate for an hour or more.
Thread the chicken onto the skewers and cook on a preheated BBQ for a few minutes each side. Serve with steamed rice and greens.
