Nutrition Ninjas Term 4 Week 3

For family dinners this week, the Ninjas assisted to make Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies. The children carefully worked on knife skills to cut up the veggies, and practised precise measuring to create the cooking sauce. Each week, the children grow stronger in their cooking knowledge, and continue to build on their fine motor skills. Many comments were made about the delicious smell wafting through the building, so if you enjoyed this meal, the recipe is provided for you here:
