When it comes to kids lunches I would be lying if I didn’t say that things can get a little mundane at times. It’s hard to find that balance between easy, healthy and cost-effective, not to mention that the kids have to actually like what you are dishing up.
The yum boxes floating around are extremely pretty and downright admirable, but when it comes to my kids it’s a strict, fruit, snack and sandwich request. All the extra eating cuts into playtime on the oval apparently. Hehe.
Ham is a great option, but if you purchase the packet ham already sliced and packed it can come with a lot of added crap which isn’t good for tummy’s to be consuming every day of the week. There are the old Vegemite and cheese, the list goes on and on.
We got bored! So we decided to try something new and the best thing about this little lunchbox sandwich saver is that it’s easy enough for Autumn (9) to make for the weekly lunches.
- 500g chicken tenderloins
- 2 spring onions
- Tablespoon of peppercorns
- 2 stalks of celery
- 3 bay leaves
- Kewpie Mayo
- Salt and pepper
1: place all ingredients into a pot and cover with water
2: bring to the boil
3: once boiled, turn off flame and leave for approx 20 minutes
4: check the chicken, if cooked drain and shred with either forks o fingers
5: add kewpie mayo, salt and pepper to taste.
Autumn has hers in gluten-free wraps with cheese and lightly toasts, the boys have theirs in a sandwich with cheese and lettuce.
Enjoy!!! And please, tag us in if you make it! We would love to see your creations.
You will love….
