My kids like what most toddlers like: pasta, bread, chicken fingers, applesauce. But I have to laugh at some of the more experimental fare in my children's culinary repertoire. My son will do anything for a steamed artichoke. He's elevated it to the level of treat, ha!
My 4 year old daughter absolutely loves mushrooms. Cremini is her favorite, but she gobbles up both the fresh and marinated kinds from the jar. Go figure. I was definitely thinking of my daughter when I came across this Chicken Georgia meal in Recipes. The full recipe after the jump. Thanks to maggiesmom415 for posting it!
