Healthy meals for kids: Chicken breast fillet with colourful vegetables
Lean chicken gives your kids vital protein, while the vegetables served alongside it will give them a wide range of nutrients and vitamins. As this dish is tasty and looks great, your kids will love it. Here is our simple guide to make 2 portions of this delicious meal.
- 2 chicken breast fillets
- Olive oil
- Mixed vegetables of your choice - preferably seasonal. Try carrots, peas, corn, broccoli, tomatoes, or even red pepper
- Cut your chicken breast into thin fillets and season to taste with a little salt and pepper.
- Wash and chop your vegetables or, if you are short on time, grab a bag of mixed frozen vegetables.
- Steam the vegetables and chicken together in a pan with a little water or olive oil.
To make this delicious recipe even easier, an air fryer such as the Philips Airfryer XXL can help. It keeps the veggies nice and crispy on the outside and evenly cooked on the inside, while your chicken stays juicy and full of flavour.
If your child is still refusing to eat their veggies, try making them even more tempting. Use cookie cutters or, if you’re feeling crafty, carve raw vegetables into animal shapes. You could even arrange your salad into a smiley face, with cherry tomato eyes and corn lips. Plus, if your kids love chips and crisps, healthy vegetable crisps make the perfect side dish.
