Recipe for Kids - Chicken Breast and Zucchini Linguine

 Recipe - I've always loved cooking with kids, and I've found that it's best to start off with simple meals. This way, you can see how much fun they have having food and can get to know their personalities. If you're cooking for one, it's helpful to have an idea of what they might want first. 

For example, if they like pasta, you might want to make sure that you have some ready before you go into the kitchen. If they only want one side of chicken, then it might be easier for you to decide which part of the chicken to choose like breast.

For that kind of moment i will share one of my easiest recipe so you and your kids can share moment together.

About Chicken Breast and Zucchini Linguine

  • 10m for prep 
  • 10m for cook 
  • 4 servings


  • 450g chicken breast fillets, halved horizontally
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 500g zucchini noodles
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) light cream
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) Massel chicken style liquid stock
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill leaves
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 30g baby spinach, to serve
  • 30g parmesan, finely grated


Step 1

Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Season the chicken well and cook for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

Step 2

Heat oil in the pan. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the zucchini noodles and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes. Add the light cream and chicken stock. Simmer for 1-2 minutes or until the zucchini noodles are just tender but not soft.

Step 3

Slice the chicken and toss through the sauce along with the dill and chives. Divide among serving bowls. Sprinkle with the spinach and parmesan, to serve.


Kids learn patience by being taught things they can consistently repeat. They also learn by playing and following rules, which means you should make sure that they are doing what you want them to do. 

It's okay to say no when they ask for something; it's better to say nothing and see if they try again later. It's also important not to try to make too many changes at once (and maybe especially not before they've finished eating). 

Cooking with kids is like solving a Rubik's Cube; you can't get too excited or frustrated, because whatever combination of movements and words they use will eventually combine to form something that looks like something else, but not quite yet.
