Yummy Chicken (Serves 4)



Daddy and I have been grilling up this chicken recipe for years. It’s a staple on our summer menu, and makes an easy dish for camping. Just toss the chicken in the marinade the night before to let it soak up all the flavors. Grill the chicken and a few vegetables for a memorable meal at home or in the great outdoors.
This recipe is Henry-approved.
Ingredients
1 pound boneless chicken thighs (about 4-5 pieces)
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup cider vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup diced onion
1 tsp minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
1 tsp Chinese five-spice
1 tsp paprika
Yummy Chicken on the grill.
Directions
Make the marinade by pouring the soy sauce, vinegar, oil, onion, garlic, and spices into a large Ziploc bag. Seal the bag and shake the marinade until it is mixed thoroughly.

Add the chicken to the bag. Reseal and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Heat a barbecue grill on medium heat. Place the chicken on the grill, reserving marinade.

After about 7 minutes, turn the chicken and baste with the remaining marinade.

Continue cooking for about 7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Allow the chicken to cool slightly before serving.
Yummy Chicken served with grilled potatoes and zucchini, plus fresh peaches and strawberries.
How your kids can help
  • 2-year old: Shaking the marinade until it is mixed thoroughly in the Ziploc bag.
  • 3-year old: Pouring the marinade ingredients into the Ziploc bag.
  • 4-year old: Measuring the soy sauce, vinegar and oil.
  • 5-year old: Measuring the spices.

Yummy Chicken is finger-licking good!

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
