This recipe is perfect for teaching young children how to cook. You can do the cutting then help the kids do the rest. (Make sure they wash their hands thoroughly after handling raw chicken!)

Replace shrimp with grilled chicken or prepared baked tofu.

To parboil the potatoes, put them into a small pot, cover with 2 inches of salted water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are just tender, but not completely cooked through since you'll finish them on the grill.

Turn on the oven, whisk together a few spices and dinner is ready before you know it. Feel free to adjust the heat level of the seasonings to your liking. Serve with a simple grain pilaf and steamed greens.
