Quick, good & kid approved

Recently, I had the opportunity to try a recipe for Kroger Honey BBQ Chicken & Bacon Dippers. That's not a recipe I would have made up on my own, even though I like to create quick new meals that  my kids can enjoy and of which I approve.

I was excited to find out the ingredients were simple; prep and cooking time was minimal, and the kids could help. Here are the Kroger products you need:

Kroger rotisserie chicken (savory)
bacon bits
greek yogurt
honey BBQ sauce
sweet corn
red pepper
tortilla wraps
Monetary Jack/mild cheddar cheese

When we got home, everybody washed their hands and we got busy. I shredded the rotisserie chicken into a bowl; my 14  year old mixed the BBQ sauce, greek yogurt and bacon bits plus the sweet corn and red peppers (which we used the food processor to chop) in a smaller bowl. My son cut the cheese into equal length and width slices.

Bobbi and I combined our ingredients:

Elijah got the tortilla wraps ready, and after we filled them with the chicken bounty, he placed the slice of cheese on top and I closed the wrap. The final touch was to spray the closure with a little non stick spray. Then I popped them into the oven for 8 minutes, turned them and waited another 8 minutes.

The finished product was pretty as can be! They smelled really good too, and best of all - my KIDS couldn't wait to try them. My babes are finicky eaters, so this in and of itself was a piece of magic wafted by Kroger.

Oh - you want to know if they were good? YES! This recipe got added to our back to school menu rotation. My daughter who never finishes anything ate two. That made me want to whip up another batch right away. She ate more the next day, with salad. These little babies are a winner in our book!
