Michelle (ingenting) Try that Brandi's casserole thing that I put on there. It's really easy to make. I'm a disaster in the kitchen and I like to eat it. I think kids might like it because it has potatoes and cheese and is not too spicy.

Valerie I make pesto pizza pretty frequently at our house. I'm going to post the recipe under "entrees". Of course, this assumes that your kids will eat pesto, but if they're adventurous eaters at all, they'll probably like it.

Heather (docswife76) | 1 comments My kids, ages 17, 11 and 6, all love this recipe.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

* 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
* 3 cups water
* 1 cup chopped celery
* 2 onions, quartered
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
* 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
* 5 carrots, sliced
* 1 (10 ounce) package frozen green peas
* 4 potatoes, quartered
* 3 cups baking mix
* 1 1/3 cups milk


1. In large, heavy pot, combine soup, water, chicken, celery, onion, salt, poultry seasoning, and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat about 1 1/2 hours.
2. Add potatoes and carrots; cover and cook another 30 minutes.
3. Remove chicken from pot, shred it, and return to pot. Add peas and cook only 5 minutes longer.
4. Add dumplings. To make dumplings: Mix baking mix and milk until a soft dough forms. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto BOILING stew. Simmer covered for 10 minutes, then uncover and simmer an additional 10 minutes.

Valerie I just remembered that the sloppy joe recipe I posted a while back might be another good bet...
