BBQ chicken & mozzarella pocket


How many of you feel like your lives are being pulled in a million directions? My life generally involves working, laundry, cleaning, yard work, kids, kids activities, your activities, church, family and a variety of other tasks that must be accomplished every day or on a regular basis. 

Sound familiar?  Good, then I’m not alone.

My goal every day is to end the say with my sanity still in tact and some how make sure my kids are eating well enough so that their teeth don’t fall out.

On top of all of the above, I enjoy entertaining. I love having people over for dinner or girls nights or just to catch up.  I’m a very social person and love learning from others! 

My oldest starts kindergarten this year. {GASP!} How many of you are right there with me?! 

Now my mind is thinking ahead to packed lunches and classroom snacks as well as after school snacks and a dinner that will help provide strength and energy to tackle another day in the classroom. 


BBQ Chicken & Mozzarella Pockets


A favorite childhood memory was coming home and the snacks my mom would provide. 

My mother was an in home day care provider.  And her afternoon snacks were ALWAYS looked forward to. 

My mother could bake and bake well and we always enjoyed what ever she whipped up for the day.

I want to provide my daughter that same type of memory.  A special snack for when she comes home from school.  So I was thinking I needed a snack that wasn’t going to fill her up and spoil her dinner, but something hearty enough to satisfy her hunger after school.  And I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love BBQ chicken!

I needed a snack that was portable in the car which she could eat on the way home {or to an activity} and one that would be quick to toss together.

That’s when I created this easy and tasty BBQ chicken & mozzarella pocket snack.  Not only does it make a great and healthy snack choice for after school, between soccer practice or on the go, it also makes a great appetizer for your next party. I like to serve my BBQ chicken & mozzarella pockets with green grapes, a favorite fruit in our house!

Simple, delicious and easy.  My three favorite words!
