    Crumbed chicken? You can call it nuggets. Just cut and crumb chicken pieces. If you slice a breast thinly you can actually get quite a bit out of it

    My boys love chicken breast cut into strips and coated with Moroccan seasoning and then pan fried. I serve with veg, and at the age of 5 they are only just now accepting that they need to eat their veggies or get no dessert.

    Veg korma curry

    Risotto- I have a few "no stir" recipes I use and they're always big winners!

    Potato and kumara bake- more of a side dish but its filling and at least they will eat that even if they won't have their protein.

    Quiche

    Homemade takeaway is a big hit too- pizzas, burgers, chips, fish etc all cooked and serve simply.

    Our kids (1, 6 an 8) love roast chicken with salad or more traditionally with roast vegies.
    Older 2 love tacos, chicken wraps, steak burritos, microwave roast potatoes with various toppings, pizza (make their own), fried rice, eggs for a quick meal and salad plates with cold meats.

    Sorry I dont know if everyone realised, but I should have mentioned in OP that this is in the gesatational diabetes section...so they need to be meals that include a fair amount of protein and smaller amount of carbs that I can take less of if need be.

    Sorry I didn't see that, obviously crumb chicken isn't good then
