Tortilla Chip Chicken

Delilicious: Tortilla Chip Chicken

While I was growing up, my entire family would sit at the table to enjoy my mom's cooking and discuss our day. Today, it's not quite as easy with my husband sometimes out of town on business. Rather than lose out on the valuable bonding time that comes with dinner, I have begun including my daughter in some mealtime preparation. It allows me to teach her new skills and keeps her out of trouble when I am preparing the meal.

My most recent toddler-aided meal was a fun take on breaded chicken. Knowing how much my lil one loves an occasional treat of chips, I used baked tortilla chips to serve as breading. While I was busy prepping the raw chicken, I gave her a bag of chips and told her to go to town smashing them. She jumped on the bag, pounded it with her fists and finally she took a wooden cooking spoon to it. By the time she was done, I was ready for the tortilla crumbs and she was beaming at her accomplishment.
