 Chicken Taco Bites are bite sized chicken tacos designed to get our oldest son to eat!
Chicken Taco Bites
It’s always a struggle to get our oldest son, Lincoln, to try a new food.
It’s frustrating.
It’s challenging.
Sometimes we fail,
but sometimes we succeed.
And that little success, allows us to keep creating dishes we think he’ll like.
This dish was created as a result of that constant Tug of War!
Who knew he’d like Chicken Tacos?!
But, he likes chicken and he loves ‘Mexican chips’.
Our new strategy is to get him to commit to ONE BITE.
(I’m not ashamed to say we’ve resorted to bribes rewards at times!
I feel like JR Ewing on Dallas, “Son, you’re gonna take a bite….
 and turn Southfork over to me….
and I’ll make sure things work out with Elena.”
Don’t you just love how he never raises his voice, never gets frantic?
And those eyebrows!?
Did you know The Eyebrows have their own Facebook and Twitter pages?!
L-O-V-E that!!!

Do you have a picker eater? What techniques do you use to get him/her to try knew foods?

    Thanks for linking this in – somehow it ended up in bananas – so I have moved it to the chicken edition for you. Cheers

    I have friends who started an 50 food challenge with their picky eaters. When they have tried 50 new foods they get a toy. So far it is working. I love the tacos I think they are very appealing.

  3. says

    These sound so easy and tasty! My son is fortunately not a picky eater (yet) but my little brother was the worst I had ever seen, so I totally understand your struggle!

      We actually did a 50 new foods contest and gave him a big happy that he’d been wanting and thankfully he’s kept eating some of the 50 things he tried. He still doesn’t do fruits or veggies though.

    Paula, These look terrific and perfect for appetizers. Lincoln will surprise you one day when he’ll eat everything … after he’s off to college. Love the Dallas referencing. Pinning this!
