I have been taking about the great Get Kids Cooking Challenge by Uncle Ben’s this week. You know the one where you could WIN a $10,000 RESP! What an amazing way to jump start your savings for your child’s education. Each week they have been issuing fun cooking challenges that you can take part in to enter. We have tried several of the Uncle Ben’s recipes and they have all turned out great. There are still a few weeks left of the challenge, so get your kids cooking today! Here is a recipe that we tried and the whole family loved: Curry Chicken Basmati Rice Pilaf.
This one pan recipe was simple to make, and the kids loved it too. A perfect way to introduce new flavours like curry to the whole family. You could also include veggies like peas or carrots depending on what your family loves.
One-Pan Curry Chicken Basmati Rice Pilaf Recipe
- 3 Tbsp Curry Powder
- ¾ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
