Oh, for the lazy days of Summer.... As If!
Nowadays we all rush around trying to balance two jobs, the kids and running the house. Many of us are taking classes on top of that.
The end result is we often just grab whatever is handy to snack on. Chips or sweet snacks like cookies or snack cakes. Not very healthy,eh? Try this instead. Take a few minutes and buy a package of tropical fruit mix at the market along with some wooden skewers. Also buy a package of popcorn chicken bites ( Tyson makes some really good ones).
You have all you need to make a platter of mini kebobs that your children will love.
Just make some up in the morning and place on a platter in the fridge.
They'll grab 'em and go.
Here's the recipe instructions:
Take a skewer and slide two pieces of fruit on
add one piece of pre cooked popcorn chicken
add a slice of banana
you may also put cheese cubes next if you like
now just repeat the process until the skewers are filled up
arrange on a platter and cover with plastic wrap.
Chill and watch them disappear!
This idea works really well as an appetizer also. Simply use long toothpicks instead of skewers and arrange on a bed of rice or lettuce leaves.
