Yesterday we were planning to watch our daughter play in a soccer game and then head over to the baseball field to watch our son play his game. Normally we have to do what I like to call "Divide and Conquer." (One parent goes to soccer and the other goes to baseball.) Yesterday was a rare opportunity for both of us to see both games on the same night because they were both in the same town. (woo hoo!) Unfortunately things didn't work out quite like we had planned because the baseball team cancelled their game due to rain.
I had already planned a picnic dinner to eat in between the soccer and the baseball game and even though we only went to one game, I went ahead and packed our dinner "to go" anyway. I made grilled chicken skewers to eat at the field, along with some oatmeal raisin cookies and fresh pineapple. I ran out of time to get the grill heated properly so at the last minute, I decided to bake the chicken instead of grilling it. I think my daughter liked them even better baked.
Baked Chicken Skewers
4 boneless chicken cutlets
2 Tablespoons barbecue sauce
4 Tablespoons oil
1 1/4 cup bread crumbs
The chicken skewers were a hit. I wish I had taken a picture of the faces of the other fans sitting in the stands when my daughter pulled a chicken skewer out of the bag. At one point, the entire row of people sitting in front of her turned around to see what she was eating. That didn't seem to discourage her from eating though, she ate her share as well as her brother's dinner!
It was a great game and the team continues to be undefeated.
