Best-Loved Chinese Recipes
Although most people associate Chinese food with a favorite restaurant, anyone can quickly learn to prepare classic Chinese dishes at home -- in about the same time it takes to order take-out. A great way to get your family started on Asian cooking is by using our best loved Chinese food recipes such as our Chicken Stir-Fry with Noodles, Asian Turkey Meatball Wraps and everyone's fabulous classic Fried Rice,.
Once your kids are more familiar with the flavors and textures of Chinese cooking, stir fries can start making a regular appearance as easy weekday dinners.
Chinese stir fries can make it from wok to table in less than 10 minutes, and the prep work can be done up to a day in advance, or avoided altogether with precut, frozen mixed vegetables (available in most supermarkets) . Making Chinese at home lets you customize the ingredients to suit your family's tastes -- and dramatically reduce the sodium and fat content.
The flavorful sauces and rainbow colors of Chinese food will encourage even the pickiest of eaters to try out new twists on familiar ingredients, but if your kids are still stubbornly refusing broccoli, you can just replace it with other vegetables (get tips to help your kids eat veggies). You can also get your kids involved in preparing dessert, thanks to this Fortune Cookie craft.
