Why do children always love to eat  chicken?

I know you will be probably asking that same question in mind. No matter how it is being cooked, they will always like it. I have observed with my nieces and nephews how they left the plates empty when their rice (staple food of the Filipinos) is matched with chicken. It may be chicken adobo, fried chicken, buttered chicken, chicken barbecue, roasted chicken, it will always be pleasing to their eating senses. How I love to look at them watching and waiting when will the cooking done and how they would grab a piece of it to eat. I can really tell their heavenly experience during meals with chicken dish on the table.

I've read that parents can keep their children at home for long hours if the children feel the love and care that is suppose to surround there. How will the children feel that love and care? Not just let them feel it but show it by cooking delectable and nutritious viands for them but it must be garnished with perfection, flavored with love and prepared with passion. You will not only keep them for hours but will even hang around with you for years.
