Quick and easy to make, great for teenagers coming in from school starving to prevent them reaching for the biscuit barrel. This is a good way of using up leftover chicken from Sunday lunch. You could add a couple of handfuls of frozen peas, some sliced mange tout or chopped baby sweetcorn.

Children can tear up the cooked chicken with their fingers and instead of chopping the baby sweetcorn they can break it into pieces instead which gets round them using sharp knives. Peppers, spring onions and coriander can be chopped using kitchen scissors instead of knives too.

Older children and teenagers could make the whole recipe from scratch once you've taught them how to use the kettle and gone through the dangers of boiling water.
