Hi, I am looking for some yummy chicken recipes that are quick and easy to make. I have 2 young children(ages 6 and 4) so I would appreciate that some of them be kid-friendly and I would also like some that I can do for a romantic evening dinner with my husband. Thanks for your help!

My children are 12,9 and 5 so I can understand the child friendly part!! I like to marinate chicken wings or legs and bake in the oven or grill for the children. They can use fingers and tend to eat more! I also do kebabs on sticks with marinated chicken pieces. For dinner tonight I am actually having crumbed chicken steaks with tomato and cheese on top with roast baby potatoes and string beans. Maybe you could try that also oe day.

I think another reason why I eat chicken noodle soup but also believe that chicken noodle soup helps to make you feel better afterwards.. Is because of the love that your mom, or even grandma or the person whom you love had put in to it.
