For the kiddos, we're spicing chicken cubes with some Italian seasoning mixed with garlic powder and a pinch of salt. Then you'll add cumin, smoked paprika and cayenne for the adults. This meal hits the summer nail on the summer head.

Ingredients

Directions

In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the dried Italian seasoning with 1/2 teaspoon of the garlic powder. Add a pinch of salt. Rub the seasoning mixture all over half of the cubed chicken. This batch will be for yo' kids.

In another small bowl, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder; add the cumin, smoked paprika and a pinch of cayenne and salt. Rub this seasoning mixture all over the other half of the cubed chicken. This batch will be for you.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the kids' chicken to the pan and saute until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining, spicier chicken. Saute until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, prep a simple green salad for the adult eaters, and boil a few ears of corn in a large pot of salted water. Melt some butter and roll the corn in it. This is a healthy, positive thing in life.

Give some corn to your littles along with their seasoned chicken. And give yourself some corn (with some salad and the spicier chicken), only toss a little bit of hot sauce on the corn! This is also a healthy and positive thing in life. Serve, eat and be happy.
