Chicken Recipes

It is #TuesdayTips and today we are bringing you an amazing round up of Chicken recipes your children will not only love to make but eat as well. Now I will say, Chicken is one of the few things that is super versatile that my own sweet kiddo doesn’t usually have issues with. He also uses his skills (cutting and more) to make his own meals or well for the family.

Before we get to the recipes though, let’s break down the chicken. While you can get chickens both whole and broken down at the grocery store, it doesn’t hurt to learn about the parts especially because it can be cheaper breaking it down yourself. A chicken comes with breasts, two legs, and a back. You may get a free liver, heart, and gizzard but I honestly just feed those to the dogs. We don’t eat that here.

You can see above in the photo how it looks broken down. I mostly use chicken breasts more often than not but we use back, wings and drumsticks too for BBQ. Just marinate and throw on the grill. Great for easy dinners.
