You swore your child would eat everything. That is, until she didn’t. While the hipsters’ kids eat mostly Paleo or whole foods, yours subsists on what can only be described as the beige food diet: chicken nuggets, fries and bread. In the modern word of farm-to-table eating, your child is still freezer-to-fork. You worry she will grow up pasty and preserved, living out a life of culinary colorlessness. So you bring her into the kitchen and together you riff on the traditional. It’s not a complete healthy dinner overhaul—you still deliver on the chicken—but even she agrees it’s an upgrade.

Raising kids can be competitive, but that’s not what we are about. Our recipe for real life starts with finding what works best for your family, helping you cut a few corners, and more importantly starting with ingredients your kids will actually eat. That’s why we let you choose each meal in your weekly meal delivery box and why we use pre-prepped ingredients from the best sources.
Even your pickiest little eaters aren’t likely to reject chicken, especially fried chicken. While the slaw might feel adventurous, even for some adults, we know that if you try it, you just might like it. This oven-fried wonder feels like a cheat-day indulgence, and we like it that way. We hope your family enjoys this recipe for our Oven-fried Chicken and Lemon Rainbow Slaw. Get ready to celebrate with a glass of pinot grigio, because tonight, you are winning dinner.
