Chicken Taco Bites are bite sized chicken tacos designed to get our oldest son to eat!
It’s always a struggle to get our oldest son, Lincoln, to try a new food.
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?!
Do you have a picker eater? What techniques do you use to get him/her to try knew foods?
*The Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce is VERY hot, use with caution!*
