It’s hard for me to stay out of the kitchen, even on Mother’s Day. But if I can persuade my family to join me there, my day truly will be special.
Here’s one way to do it: an easy, elegant chicken recipe--perfect for a Mother’s Day meal--that the whole family can make. You may even be able to step back from the real work.
Younger children will need a hand, though. Start them out by placing several chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag. Let the younger kids pound the chicken with a meat mallet.
Use your food processor to chop the herbs and combine with the butter to save time. Originally I used to tie the chicken bundles with kitchen twine, but wooden skewers or long toothpicks are much quicker.
Maybe your family will enjoy cooking you a meal so much that this won’t happen just on Mother’s Day.
