Eat a Rainbow Taste-Test

cbceatarainbow1

We all know how important it is for our kiddos to eat a healthy diet loaded with a variety of bright and colourful fruits and vegetables. But, sometimes kids aren’t so willing to try out new things and turn their noses up at certain fruits and veggies. Visit CBC Parents to find out about a fun little “taste-test” game I like to play with my kiddos and how it works to to entice our children to try new things.

Campbell’s Tex Mex Chicken & Rice Bake

texmex1

How is March Break treating you? We’re smack dab in the middle of it right now and finding constant entertainment for the kiddos has been rather exhausting to say the least. After a jam-packed day of activities today, the kids were starving for supper. I figured tonight would be a great night to try out a new recipe – Campbell’s Tex Mex Chicken and Rice Bake. I had all the ingredients on hand already and it seemed rather easy – and an added bonus, my kiddos love chicken. Plus the kids were home with me, which doesn’t usually happen when I am preparing supper, so I figured they could help out too! They love helping by measuring ingredients, pouring them and mixing them. They’ve become excellent little helpers. The preparation for this recipe is beyond easy and the end result is delicious. That’s my kind of recipe! This is why I have been loving these Campbell’s recipes so much – they truly are “Simple to Make, Easy to Love.” Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

1 can (10 oz/284 mL) CAMPBELL’S® Condensed Low Fat Cream of Chicken Soup
1 soup can 1% milk
3/4 (175 mL) cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
1 1/2 tsp (7mL) chili powder
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) mixture of red and green pepper strips, chopped onion
1/2 cup (125 mL) frozen corn
4 (about 1 lb/500 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Tex Mex cheese (or Cheddar and Monterey Jack mixture)

3. Bake at 400°F (200°C) until chicken is cooked through and rice is tender – about 45 minutes. Remove cover and broil until cheese is golden and bubbly – about 3 minutes. Remove chicken and stir rice before serving.

Rainbow Crafts and Foods for Kids
