Satay Chicken

Cinnamon Chicken


  1. 1 cup basmati rice
  2. 1 can of chicken broth (1 3/4 cup)
  3. 4 chicken thighs (frozen, boneless & skinless)
  4. 1 onion
  5. 1 slice white bread
  6. 2 tablespoons butter
  7. 3 tablespoons flour
  8. 1/4 cup milk
  9. 1/2 cup water
  10. 1/2 cup frozen corn
  11. 1/2 cup frozen peas
  12. 1 teaspoon salt
  13. 1/8 teaspoon ground cinammon

This takes about half an hour total, starting with most ingredients frozen. All three of my kids will eat it.

Put the frozen chicken thighs in a saucepan in the sink filled with hot tap water.

Put the chicken broth in another saucepan at medium-high heat. Add the 1 cup rice, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon cinammon. Once it comes to a boil, cover it and turn the heat down to just above low. Turn the heat off 15 minutes later.

Meanwhile put a big frying pan on medium, put in the butter, chop up an onion, and put it in the butter. Stir it occasionally, to make sure all the onion gets sauteed and as little onion as you can gets burnt.

By this time (unless you're a really fast onion chopper) the chicken should be semi-thawed. Chop it up into bitesize pieces, like you see in cashew chicken at Chinese restaurants.

Add the chicken to the onions. Add the milk and flour and water too. Stir fairly often. (The goal of the water is to boil the chicken so it all gets cooked, even the parts not on the pan.)

Now chop up the bread into the tiniest pieces you can (I usually get 1/8 inch squares) and throw that in too. Keep it cooking, stirring, until the water has mostly boiled off. (About this time the rice is done so turn off its heat.)

Once you're sure all the chicken is cooked, dump in some frozen corn and peas. Wait until the mix is well-bubbling again. Then turn off the heat and throw in the rice. Mix well. Serve.

Banana and Yams


  1. 1 yam
  2. 1 banana
  3. a little olive oil
  4. (optional) peanuts
  5. (optional) maple syrup

Cook sweet potato beforehand. (You can cook a bunch of them in a microwave by pressing the "bake potato" button.) Remove skin, chop into 1 centimeter thick slices. Cut banana in half, then cut it in half lengthwise.

Heat oil. Add sweet potato, banana, and peanuts. Cover for about 5 minutes. Banana bottoms should brown. Eat with maple syrup. (Source: the allergy self-help cookbook)

Parmesan Fish


  1. 4 salmon steaks or fillets
  2. (optional) 1 little thing plain yogurt or sour cream
  3. (optional) 1/2 tsp salt
  4. 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  5. 2 tsp lemon juice
  6. 1 tsp dill, 1 tsp tarragon, maybe some basil
  7. paprika, for coloring

Put everything except the fish in a bowl. Stir, should be the color of thousand island dressing. Pour over fish. Cook until fish is done. (Source: third cousin of Betty Crocker)



  1. 2 cups rolled oats (optionally, add other flours, seeds and nuts)
  2. 1 cup shredded coconut
  3. 1 stick butter
  4. 1/2 cup honey
  5. raisins (optionally, add chopped dried pineapple and dates)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix oats, seeds, nuts, and coconut. Put stick of butter in saucepan, add equal amount of honey as butter, melt butter. Pour honey & butter over oats & nuts, mix so all the oats are wet. Cook until it starts to brown, about 20 minutes. Mix in dried fruit. (Source: second cousin of Betty Crocker)
