Chicken & Vegetable Skillet Kabobs + a Seasoned Spread

My kids have been more enthusiastic than ever this summer when it comes to helping out in the kitchen. Weekly they are making their own breakfast, helping prep meals, and at one point asked to take cooking classes.

This week is their last cooking class of the session and they are pretty bummed. That just means I will have to utilize them in the kitchen even more. It also gives me an opportunity to sneak in some math skills, pattern practice and fine motor skills. Plus, one day in the future they will even be cooking for me without my help, right?

With our hectic schedules, quick & easy dinners are essential throughout the week. When we plan meals on Sunday, I go over our schedule to see which days limit our dinner time and then get the boys’ opinions on what they think we should make one or two evenings.

Our backyard garden is thriving right now with peppers and grape tomatoes. Corbin asked what we could make to use some of the vegetables he picked from the garden this weekend. I suggested some kabobs and of course he was onboard, because he knew that was something he could help with.

In a small mixing bowl, add Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread and mix in the chili powder, basil, garlic and pepper.

The new Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread makes it super easy and convenient for the little ones to help out. Corbin loves being able to do as much as possible when helping in the kitchen, so being able simply squeeze it out of the bottle right out of the refrigerator is a big deal. I didn’t realize I really needed such product, but I can’t live without it now. It is made with real butter and stays clean and crumb-free.
