Part of my New Year’s resolution is to cook more at home….yep even I have trouble getting supper on the table sometimes with hectic schedules. Sometimes it’s just easier to grab take out, but we are trying to eat better and eat at home 6 out of 7 nights each week. We love to go out to supper after church on Saturday night, so that is going to be our one night out. Luckily, I’ve been experimenting with cooking supper in 15 minutes, so there really is no excuse on those crazy nights. Can you believe that this chicken scallopine is ready in just about 15 minutes and that also includes my roasted asparagus.
If you’ve never had chicken scallopine, then you are missing out. Basically, it’s a thin piece of chicken that is very lightly breaded and pan fried in a bit of oil. I find that if I make quick dishes like this that my family is really satisfied.
If I only I could get the kids to eat more than two different vegetables…..we either have broccoli or asparagus with every meal. I can get them to peas or corn occasionally but that’s about it! How do you get your kids to eat a variety of vegetables? I’d love to hear about it, so leave a comment!
