Today we will make some delicious chicken packets and fruit parfaits.
Look at all these great vegetables we have to work with.
So, one of my favorite things about making these chicken packets is that you can put
just about any vegetable in it that you like, and
you can change up the flavors every time you make it by just adding a different set
of ingredients. Let’s wash our hands and then
cut up a red pepper. Now remember, when you’re working with knives
at home to always make sure a grown-up is around. There’s really
three things about this dish. We have the protein, which I’m using fish
and you’re gonna use chicken. And then we have the vegetables and the seasonings.
Will it make a difference if you’re using chicken or fish?
Well, there are some differences, cooking wise.
The fish takes a lot less time in the oven. The fish has important oils in it that
are particularly healthy for you. They are both excellent sources of protein.
Let’s get started on your chicken. One of the things is to try something new
if you’re feeling adventurous today, or if there’s something you haven’t tried
before, why not try something new. Or if you prefer, pick your favorites today
and the next time you make it at home you can try something different.These
are looking good. If you are making this at home, with your
family and everyone wants to make it their own way you can actually write names
on the foil. Then when it comes out of the oven you will know exactly which one is
yours. The oven is set to 400 and preheated. We’ll
come back and check on them in 20min and make sure the internal temperature has reached
165 degrees.So, after 10min we’ll put the fish in.
The fish will cook to 145 degrees internal temperature. While that is cooking let’s
get started on the parfaits.
YEAH! Dessert We have some fruits here that your familiar
with, like strawberries, grapes, blueberries and bananas. For toppings…we have some low
fat whole grain granola, and some pecans. Some examples of whole grain ingredients are
oats, brown rice, whole grain barley and whole wheat. In our bowls here, we have
some low fat yogurt. Yogurt and milk adds calcium to your bones,
so you can grow up to be a strong young man or woman in your case.
How you do it is really up to you. Some people like to put the yogurt down first.
Some people like to put the granola down first. I usually eat fruit for a snacks. But sometimes
I also eat them for breakfast Fruit is a great snack. It can be good for
breakfast, lunch, part of a meal or dessert. Here ya go!
Do you remember what temperature it should be?
About 165 degrees Fahrenheit Perfect. Yeah! It’s done. Let’s go eat.
So, here in this meal we have the protein from the chicken and the fish
and we also have all the vitamins, minerals from the vegetables that we used.
So my favorite part was working with you guys to put our packets together
and creating our own unique flavors and now getting to taste how it comes out.
Yeah, it tastes delicious. This stuff is like edible art. It’s colorful
and creative at the same time. I didn’t know cooking healthy foods could
be so nutritious and fun. On to the parfaits. I can’t wait to dig
in. Chef I can easily make this at home for a
snack and I think I will some time. You can use whatever fruits are in season.
Switch it up, just like we did with the chicken packets. We can try different
things at different times. It’s actually very easy to make this parfait.
