This homemade version of the Americanized Chinese food classic is fool-proof enough for a harried weeknight and delicious enough to make you happy you’re making the effort of cooking. Kids and adults wolf down the tender chicken, bite-sized chunks of bell pepper, cashews, and delicious sauce.
We’re always looking for quick and easy weeknight dinners that appeal to our preschooler as well as us. With this recipe, you cook the Spanish rice and chicken together, and then add black beans and corn to the same pan (though it’s easy to separate them out for picky eaters who like their food in separate piles). Add more piles of chopped avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream, and salsa, and you’ve got dinner.
