This quick dish will put your kiddo’s favorite restaurant appetizer within reach. Sure, you’ll use American cheese, but you’ll also whip up a tangy secret sauce that will keep your adult palate happy, too.

They’ll cluck for more of these juicy chicken tenders! They can even help coat and bread the chicken (after a talk about the importance of handwashing before and after, of course) while you captain the skillet. Serve with P.F. Chang’s® Kung Pao Sauce and give your portion a grown-up twist with crushed peanuts and cilantro.

3. CRISPY ROLLED BEEF TACOS
