Today’s quick and easy recipe is actually inspired by my kids, both of whom have turned into pretty proficient cooks in the kitchen themselves. We’ve always encouraged them to take part in preparing meals or baking their favourite treats. It’s a lifelong skill that every kid should be encouraged to learn the most they can about. It also fosters a love of food and a better understanding of nutrition.

As they grew into pre-teens and then teenagers, the ravenous appetites of young adults came with the always and inevitable, repetitive “I’m hungry”! From a young age my kids were encouraged to solve that problem for themselves and to be a little inventive in the solution.

When Maple Leaf Foods asked me to come up with a quick and easy recipe idea using their new Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® Slow Roasted Shredded Chicken, it was this idea that came to mind. They’ve used this idea many, many times for after school fuel ups, quick lunches and late night snacks. Paired with a side salad it makes a terrific dinner for the busiest workdays too.

Make this recipe idea fun in the kitchen with smaller kids by using smaller 6 inch tortillas, letting them choose their own toppings, and adding them themselves. When kids are involved in preparing their own meals, you’ll have far fewer complaints at the table, I guarantee.

We generally use part skim mozzarella for pizza, and keep whole wheat tortillas on hand too. Using those, along with fresh peppers or other veggies makes this a pretty nutritious snack or meal too. Because Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® Slow Roasted Shredded Chicken is made with natural ingredients and no added preservatives, it is an ideal quick & easy choice for this recipe idea.

I can see lots of versatile ideas for this shredded chicken too; because it is so simply seasoned you can add any flavours you like. From spicy taco and Quesadillas with salsa to chicken salad wraps and those giant burritos my kids seem to make all the time these days, this product is a quick, easy way to make those meals in minutes.

SENSATIONAL!! So easy to prepare, cook, and transfer to a cutting board. They easily slide off the pizza pans...no need for a pizza peel. I used sliced back-bacon instead of chicken. If you wish a somewhat thicker crust, consider placing a second crust on top of the fist, and "cement" the two together with a bit of cheese or sauce.

Rock Recipes strikes again....!!!

I love making these for lunch. My fav is to use buffalo sauce, chicken, peppers, and mozza.
