Moms, I don’t know about you but one thing I dread the most during the holidays is stopping to figure out the answer to the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner?” Between the hustle and bustle of cooking for parties, gift shopping, school plays, school parties, and everyday life, having time to actually cook for the family is near impossible.
But what is even harder is finding healthy ON the GO dinner options during the holidays. That is until Michelle and I were introduced to El Pollo Loco.
Well, with this past week being Thanksgiving and with my husband working about a million hours by the time Wednesday night rolled around and we realized we had to feed some cute little faces we knew El Pollo Loco would be our answer.
When we got to El Pollo Loco the kids were STARVING so we made our decisions quick. What I loved most about their menu options was not only were their healthy options for Eric and I, but the kids menu was full of great choices. We have to be careful what our kids eat due to allergies and this made ordering so easy.
Once we ordered Everly took advantage of the salsa bar and I quickly grabbed us some creamy cilantro dressing or as I like to call it, heaven in a cup.
We did not wait long and our delicious food was ready! Thank goodness we had a short wait because the smell of the citrus marinated chicken has us all ready to eat.
Our food came, and it did not disappoint. I had a table full of happy campers just eating away!
The best part, our table was surprisingly quiet, a rare occasion in our house…..
Told ya we loved it! Even my picky husband said that he would definitely choose El Pollo Loco over once of his beloved hamburgers any day of the week. This is a major compliment coming from him so congrats to the Pollo!
