Written by COA Nutrition Team On September 21, 2018

Make these yummy Chicken Pesto Kebobs with your kids for dinner tonight! Small bite size pieces that kids love to assemble themselves.

  • 2 medium red bell peppers
  • 2 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced white mushrooms

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Take a minute to mentally walk through what you’re cooking

Before you start cooking, taking just one minute to think through what you’re about to do makes all the difference in the world. If you’re making multiple dishes, you can pick out what takes the longest to cook and the exact order to prep and cook things, seeing where there are opportunities to prep things while something else is cooking. It’s a lot more efficient to have a mental game plan so you don’t hit any bumps, like forgetting to get water boiling.
