Mommy Hates Cooking

Picky Eaters: Broccoli and Chicken Bake

I recently became a member of Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen.  This site has amazing recipes from families all over the country.  If you are looking for one in particular you are sure to find one there.

As I was browsing the site I found the recipe for Easy Chicken and Broccoli Bake. When I saw this I immediately thought this may be a good way to hide in the broccoli for my son, who as we saw in the broccoli post takes after me, he does not like it!

The change I made to this recipe, is that I used Gold ‘N Plump Ground Chicken.  This was my first time using ground chicken, so I cooked it with 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil to add flavor to it.  I had been told that it is best to add more seasoning to the ground chicken.  I was very pleased with the chicken, and it is perfect for my son because he does not like the texture of shredded chicken.

I fully cooked the chicken before adding it to this dish.  After it bakes in the oven for 20 minutes, I removed it, topped it with cheddar cheese and put it back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes.

How did it go over with my son?  He ate every drop!  It is definitely a winner in our household since it accomplished the goal, my son ate his broccoli.  I ate it too, but I still can not seem to get over my hatred of broccoli!

Enjoy this kid friendly dish!
