Chicken tenderloins ready to be sliced.


This one is a huge hit with the kids and the mums. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, is full of goodness and protein, and has a few hidden vegetables too. The tofu we used and recommend are lightly-fried tofu patties, with chopped vegetables mixed into it - including carrots, mushrooms, and corn. Once it's all fried up with the chicken, the kids won't know what's what - only that it tastes great!
