Previous Dinner Was: Honey Soy Sauce Chicken.
The best thing about this recipe is that you only need 4 ingredients (chicken, honey, soy sauce, and sake). It takes less than 10 minutes to prep and simply pop in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Need I say more?
Lunch Next Day:
- Onigiri (rice ball)
- Honey Soy Sauce Chicken, bone removed
- Quick and Easy Tamagoyaki (Japanese Rolled Omelette)
- Sauteed cabbage, seasoned with salt and pepper
- Various fresh fruits
You could put chicken drumetts directly in the bento, but knowing how slooooow my children eat, I removed the meat off from bone so that they can finish their lunch quicker.
In the morning, I reheated the chicken (for food safety reason) and made Onigiri, Tamagoyaki, and sauteed cabbage. With all the colorful fruits and tomato added to bento box, the “leftover” lunch now is a beautiful healthy balanced meal.
Have a nice week everyone!
