How many nights per week do you sit down as a family and have a meal together?
Family dinners are important to me. Maybe more so because when I was a kid my dad worked out of town a lot and so dinner as a whole family didn’t happen all the time. So for us, we typically eat as a family 7 nights a week. Occasionally one of us might be out, or Zach at a friends or something like that. But we eat together almost every single night.
That is part of the reason that I am always on the look out for a new recipe to try. With 3 kids there is always something that they don’t like, right? I am sure more than a few people can relate. However, I do try to expose my kids to all kinds of foods. Believe me, my husband will tell me if he doesn’t want me to make something again!
And who doesn’t love finding a New Comfort Food?
THE NEW COMFORT FOOD IS:
1. Using mostly local, seasonal ingredients
2. Minimal ingredients in the recipe
3. Quick, easy steps and fast prep time
So today I thought it would be fun to do a Chicken Salad Wrap. I knew the tortilla being a spinach wrap might push the limits of the kids because they haven’t liked them in the past. But otherwise I was pretty sure that this would be a hit!
I ran to the store and grabbed some Foster Farms Simply Raised Fresh Chicken. I love it because it is locally grown (Pacific Northwest Grown), antibiotic-free chicken. I only needed a few other things, so I got everything I needed and headed home to make a delicious Chicken Salad Wrap.
I got so excited to get home and get started that I ripped my chicken open without a picture first! So here is one of the package partially ripped off!
Next, I seasoned it with my favorite 21 Day Fix seasoning and added a cup of water and poached it.
While I was poaching the chicken I cut up lettuce, avocado, tomato, mango and I put the juice from half of a lime into the chicken. I also added just a bit of mayo and mustard into my chicken and gave it a good stir.
Last, I just layered it all onto the tortilla shell and wrapped it all together. It was a hit and the kids even liked it! So I guess we have a #newcomfortfood to add to our list!
