We enlisted the kids to help. At first, we grabbed a baking dish and searched for some chicken marinade. After reading the instructions on the Good Table® box, we quickly realized that step wasn't necessary! General Mills has a new product that helps you make restaurant-inspired dinners with ease.

Good Table® products come in a variety of flavors that provide you with the ingredients to dress up your choice of protein. We chose chicken, because the kids are picky eaters. You can find it at Walmart near the bread crumbs.

Since the kids are so picky, we tried two varieties. Pictured below are Southwest Tortilla and Parmesan and Herb. The kids chose the parmesan- anything with cheese is a go!

Let me tell you, this was shockingly easy to do. There is no need to marinade and no messy egg mixture to keep the breading in place.

Step 1: Coating the chicken before breading.

The breading sticks to the sauce very well- much better than with bread crumbs and eggs. This is so much easier than your typical fried or baked chicken recipe. So easy, in fact, that the kids did most of the work! The instructions even include pictures.
