With the boys on different school schedules yet again, I did a first day of school supper rather than the “special snack” from our elementary school days. I chose a favorite (and easy) dinner for the first night – chicken taco boats – and used the same decor from their pancake breakfast.
The EASY menu:
- Shredded chili lime chicken (absolutely amazing, recipe follows)
- Tortilla bowls, warmed (my boys favorite for taco night, so easy to eat!)
- Daddy-OLE’s Homemade Salsa
- Sour cream, lettuce, tomato, cilantro, shredded cheese
Shredded Chili Lime Chicken
This chicken is absolutely delicious and full of flavor. Every time I make it I literally cannot stop eating it. The recipe is HERE from Half Baked Harvest. She makes it in the crock pot, and that works perfectly. Tonight I didn’t have 6 hours of lead time, so I threw everything that would go in the crock in the instant pot and cooked it on high for 15 minutes, did a 5 minutes natural pressure release and then flipped it to venting. I shredded it, and added the lime and cilantro just lie you’d do in a crock pot. Since I still had a bit of time before serving, I turned it to Keep Warm until we ate.
As far as how things went… thumbs up all around! Yay!! I thought about them both all.day.log. Whit eased right in and already has a favorite teacher. John is pleased to have lots of friends in his classes and a “good” lunch period.
Hope the good reports keep coming!!
