Jalapeño Ranch Chicken Sandwich

This summer is shaping up to be an exhausting one.

My kids are getting older and all they want to do is play video games and watch Netflix all day. I’m forcing them to go outside and play, encouraging them to work, and I’m even going to sign them up for some summer camps (hello, my name is taxi driver… how may I help you?)

We can recycle bottles and cans in our town for a decent refund, so my kids are now going door to door asking for bottles and cans to recycle. They’ve done so well that they wanted to invest in their business and buy a wagon to carry their bottles. I found a used one for sale, and because I wanted to get my kids out and active (and also because I’m trying to reach 10K steps per day), I decided we would walk there. It didn’t look too far away on the map…

2 miles later…

My two year old pretty much quit after 100 feet, so I was left to carry her. All I kept thinking was, we’ll get that wagon and then she can sit in it on the way home! 

Luckily before all 4 of my kids had a mental breakdown, we made it! The kids bought their wagon and then proceeded to fight over who got to pull it home… such is life.

When we got home I whipped up these killer grilled chicken sandwiches and everyone forgot about fighting over the wagon.

For like 10 minutes.

    You all deserved that ‘killer’ sandwich. Carrying a two yr old is not a piece of cake. Good for you to start your kids early with balancing life between ‘real’ life and ‘fake’ techno life. Its a huge challenge for parents today. Outstanding sandwich by the way.

    Great story. Lol. 2 miles later. I have had “adventures” like that before. Thankfully they have the wagon now. Love this chicken sandwich. My family really doesn’t go for jalapeños in our house but I think I could sneak just a little in for a subtle kick 🙂
