    • Lunchbox Ideas

      Hey I just found this while searching for something else for Maya and thought it was a good idea!

      Plus this would be very versatile, you could season the chicken in lots of ways, leave out the sugar or substitute etc...:

      Chicken Dippers Lunch

      Next time you prepare boneless, skinless chicken breast for dinner, cook a couple extra and slice them into strips for an easy lunch. In this recipe, we take leftover chicken strips and quickly make a "buffalo wings" inspired healthy lunchbox that's sure to please. Can be made and packed the night before.
      Makes 2–3 lunches

      * 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about ½ pound) cut in strips, cooked
      * 1 TB apple cider vinegar
      * dash or two Tabasco sauce (optional)
      * 1/4 tsp paprika
      * 1 tsp organic cane sugar
      * 1/4 tsp sea salt
      * 1/8 to 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
      * 2–3 TB organic blue cheese dressing for dipping

      Chicken Dippers Lunch

      Combine vinegar and Tabasco (optional) in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Roll cooked chicken in the vinegar to moisten. Combine paprika, sugar, salt and pepper in a sealable sandwich bag and shake to combine well. Place moistened chicken strips in the bag with the seasonings and shake well to coat.

      Pack the chicken (still in its seasoning bag) with a lunchbox container of blue cheese dressing on the side. Keep cold.

      Complete your Chicken Dippers lunchbox with: celery sticks, corn & grain tortilla chips, apple sauce, an oatmeal cookie, milk or alternative beverage.

      Ofcourse I would substitute the chips, applesauce etc ideas with something else. Boiled egg might be good.
