Family night is very important to our family. We try to set aside one night per week where we spend time together doing something fun without the distractions of work, sports, music lessons or other commitments. While shopping at Walmart, I came across Tyson Batter Tenders in the freezer bins and saw that there was a coupon for $5 off of Smurfs 2 when you purchased the chicken. Seemed like a perfect pair for a fun dinner and movie night with my boys.
As a kid, I grew up watching Smurfs cartoons and I especially loved when baby Smurf was brought to the Smurfs by a stork. Since the Smurfs are small and as a throw back to my childhood, I decided to create a dinner based around Baby Smurf. The chicken tenders were perfect for baking and then cutting into bite-sized pieces to make the perfect “baby” kabobs for my boys with a variety of dipping sauces.
These were super easy to make. I baked the chicken according to the package and while baking, I boiled some tortellini. Then I used my cheese cutter to make some fun shapes out of cheese and threaded them all onto skewers. You could also use cookie cutters to cut up your cheese into fun shapes. Then I gave the option of four dipping sauces: Marinara, Ranch, BBQ sauce and Honey mustard.
To go along with the theme of “Baby Smurf” I paired our chicken skewers with baby carrots and tangerines, which my boys call baby oranges. I thought it made for a fun and colorful dinner.
My boys had a great time trying out the different sauces and loved eating their food as kabobs and they loved the Tyson Batter Tenders. . Food is just more fun when you get to stab it with a stick. 😉
We absolutely loved Smurfs 2! I love when there are movies that we can all enjoy as a family and also movies that have a good theme and moral interwoven throughout.
