For Kids: Serve the chicken diced on some baby spinach greens along with your kids' favorite dressing, or serve it atop couscous made with chicken broth and raisins. Nutrient-boosting option: Top with homemade fruit salsa.

For Adults: Serve with caramelized onions, spicy tomato salsa, and homemade guacamole. Or serve it on the kid-friendly couscous above, adding diced olives, cashews, and lemon zest. Warm salad option: Diced, atop baby spinach greens sautéed with mushrooms, garlic, and cayenne.
