How to Make It
First you’ll want to do the prep work. This is a great time to get those kid friendly scissors out for kids to have some fun! Remember they’re more willing to eat food if they helped make it!
Cut the chicken into 1/2 inch strips. This should be done by an adult since it’s raw. Then cut up the vegetables.
Here’s a pro tip for you:
Use an oven safe thermometer. It’s easy to over cook chicken, using a thermometer to check if it’s reached 165F is the best way not to overcook chicken. All ovens are different, so it’s best to use this.
- Use an internal thermometer – this will prevent dry chicken!
- Can you freeze these?
- This recipe is best fresh. There are no preservatives in the recipe. I also don’t really enjoy the texture of defrosted meat.
- How long will it keep in the fridge?
- You can happily keep it in the fridge for 3 days.
