Dinner time hosts some of the most influential moments in our lives as we grow. The kitchen is the epicenter of fellowship in most homes. In fact, first time home buyers’ decision to buy or pass weighs heavily upon the floorplan of the home’s kitchen.
If you are lucky enough to get your whole family into the kitchen, you will want to have plenty of excellent dinner ideas to suffice their hunger. Here is a brief synopsis of a few tasty dishes that the whole family will love.
Slow cooker chicken tortilla soup
Sometimes you simply do not have time to cook in the evenings, but dinner is a sacred gathering. You also want your family to have a healthy, well-rounded meal at least once per day. Slow cooker chicken tortilla soup is the answer to your challenge.
With only a few basic ingredients, your family will enjoy a tasty Mexican-inspired treat. Toss some chicken in the slow cooker, and let dinner cook itself.
Every parent understands the value of a 10-minute healthy meal, and build-your-own tacos night is just such a thing. There are a multitude of possible ingredients in tacos, and they are all very simple to prepare. Pick and choose to suit your family’s tastes.
Fresh veggies are simply a matter of chopping. Refried beans and ground turkey (because it is healthier than ground beef) only take five minutes to cook on the stove, and voila, dinner.
Crunchy munchy chicken “toes”
Chicken, bread crumbs, and corn flakes are the main ingredients in these crunchy munchy chicken “toes.” Simply take a few slim-cut chicken tenders, cover them with a few crunching, browning components, and toss them into the oven for 15 minutes.
Every child enjoys getting their hands on a chicken strip. Your main course will please the little hands at the table while maintaining your high nutritional standards. Also, because the best chicken tenders tend to be an excellent source of selenium, niacin, vitamin B6, and phosphorus, each providing more than 40% of your daily value set by the FDA, your children would benefit greatly from this dish.
Baby-sized banana splits
Every good dinner needs an even better dessert, and the kids will love what we have in store. Baby-sized banana splits are a great way to keep portion sizes small and smiles large.
Toss eight baby bananas (peel and all) on a cookie sheet and into the oven for 12 minutes at 375 degrees. Once they are heated, peel them, and cut them in half. Top the banana with a scoop of coconut ice cream and some peanuts, and get to work.
Garlic chicken and roasted baby reds
If all else fails, go to a classic recipe of garlic chicken and roasted baby reds. Meat and potatoes always makes the stomach happy. Chicken breasts and red baby potatoes, seasoned to taste, are a healthy alternative to a fast food.
