Nicholas picked tater tots and curly fries as a side dish, so here he is getting them ready. The kids absolutely LOVE cooking and I'm so thrilled.
Gradually stir boiling water into skillet. Cook, stirring continually, until sauce thickens slightly. Return chicken to skillet.
Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until chicken is tender. Add salt and pepper, paprika and bay leaf and cook chicken for 5 minutes longer.
