When it comes to easy meals it doesn't get better than little pieces of chicken coated in a sweet yet savory sauce. And this one is fun for the little ones to slather with an adorable silicon pastry brush that looks like a blue man.

This was a meal prepared by my beautiful children while I got ready for a run. I laid out the chicken and set Audrey up with the potatoes and a sharp knife. The potatoes are easier to cut when they are less wobbly so I cut them in half for her. She cut most in quarters and then sliced a few thin for the girls. Maurene would not be left out so I set her up with a small cutting board and her own potato. She pulled out a child sized butter knife and then was upset it would not cut. I let her hold a sharp knife while I placed my hand over hers and let her help me cut a few.
After these simple preparations were made we put the food in the oven and the corn on the stove all ready to cook. Audrey went to piano lessons and I went for my run. All that had to be done was to turn on the oven and stove. I would love to share a picture of this fabulous meal but it was mostly consumed by the time I returned home from running with friends.
