Chicken Olive Bread Cups

32- Chicken Olive Bread CupsPin


I have kids who have terrible hunger pangs, yet wouldn’t eat anything that is given to them. I am lucky that they eat fruits like apple, banana, pomegranates, etc. and vegetables like cucumber and carrot, but otherwise to get a meal across to them is very difficult, in general. Just the other day last week, I made a simple stir fry of chicken and broccoli, hoping that they would touch the green thing along with the chicken, alas, my plate kept getting flying broccoli pieces landing into it and they quietly finished off the chicken. No amount of screaming, requesting or begging worked. It is always the case… Sometimes it is so nerve-wrecking, but then I remind myself that even we as kids were very fussy with vegetables… πŸ˜€


This is the simplest snack I have ever made, I guess… Some slices of bread, topping of your choice, baked till done and ready to devour! This is so apt for packing into the kid’s school snack box, when you get impromptu guests and even for your Iftar time snacks, since Ramadan is approaching soon, InShaAllah. Since it has ingredients that kids will love, it won’t take time to fly off your plates!

Hehehe… as a kid I never knew broccoli! πŸ˜€ This is super easy isnt it? minus the baking, I always do something with rolled bread but just goes on the pan or deep fried! πŸ˜› It all happens so quick that there is no time for me to click! Btw, is this pic after baked? the bread looks fresh and white.. forgive me, if I am wrong.. πŸ™
