A Dinner Success Story…for a Two Year Old

So, I can tell you how many times I’ve had this conversation/argument with my two year old Sam.  

Me: Five More Bites

Sam: No.

Me: You have to eat something.

Sam: No

It goes on like that for several minutes, before Sam finally gives in and gives me the pleasure of one bite.  Well, tonight I made a recipe from the blog, Full Bellies. Happy Kids. It was for Chicken in a Mushroom Gravy Sauce with a Lemon Garlic Spaghetti.  Not only did he eat it, but he asked for 3 more servings.  The only thing I would change about this recipe is adding chopped onion to the olive oil.  The sauce was a little bland.  Also, I added canned mushrooms, and did not have lemon juice, so I used a Lem ‘n Dill seasoning.  Here’s the recipe:

Chicken Breast, sliced lengthwise

Olive Oil



Garlic Powder

Cream of Mushroom Soup








 Season the chicken.  In a skillet, lightly coat in olive oil. Fry the chicken.  Add mushroom soup, and a little water to thin it out.


Cook Pasta.  After draining, add butter, garlic, and the juice of half a lemon.  Add Parsley.


Does it get any easier??
