Let My Children Cook Spicy Chicken Bake Passover Recipe

Spicy Chicken Bake

Tamar Ansh has released a wonderful new Passover cookbook this year — and it’s truly different than anything I’ve seen before.

Promoted as a kids’ cookbook and activity book, Let My Children Cook features delicious, family-friendly recipes that are simple and quick to make. They really are do-able with your children — or, better yet, by your children!

The recipes feature fun cartoon illustrations, an easy-to-read font and simpler words for chefs of all ages (children ages 8-15 are the target audience).

Let My Children Cook also includes cooking and safety guidelines, and explains general dietary laws and those specific to Passover – all especially catered to new cooks.

Let My Children Cook

My family received a review copy of Let My Children Cook a few weeks ago and we have already tried out several recipes. One in particular has stood out as our favorite: The Spicy Chicken Bake. It’s perfect for Passover, of course, but it’s also gluten-free and grain-free (and even white potato-free), so we ate it often during our Whole30!

I even made this recipe for 60 people at a family Shabbat dinner at my shul last month. It was universally liked by both adults and children (I was even asked for the recipe by one self-avowed chicken “hater”!).

Oh, and before I share the recipe, let me just say: Don’t let the word “spicy” in the title turn you off. It’s spicy as in “made with many spices”, not as in burn-your-mouth-it’s-so-spicy-hot. I don’t like spicy harif, but I do, very much, like the flavor of this dish.

Disclosure Statement




  1. Just made this – replacing onion with celery, adding a small white potato in addition to the sweet potato, and adding fennel because I had some. I actually made 2 pans – one for us, one for good friends who just had a baby (I’d promised to make them a Pesadik meal). They’re cooling now, will get frozen shortly to be thawed sometime in a couple of weeks! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. My family does not like cooked carrots. Can they be left out or does the recipe need the flavor?
