Welcome back to our weekly Bento lunch recipe idea post. Every week we are sharing a new school lunch idea that you can make for your kids. These are new and delicious ideas that will keep them from getting bored with the plain old peanut butter and jelly every day.
Finding new ideas can sometimes be difficult. Here at Southern Mom Cooks, we want to make it easy for you to create unique lunch ideas. We have shared everything from All Star Lunch ideas to Fathers Day Lunch Ideas. You could also use these ideas during the summer months if you are running out of lunch creativity for your kids while they are home.
Today I have an easy chicken nugget bento lunch idea that your kids will love if they are anything like mine! My kids are always asking for nuggets at home or when we eat out, so why not sent them in their lunch?
Chicken Nugget Bento Lunch Recipe Instructions:
By using a thermos in the lunch box, you will be able to keep their lunch warm until they are ready to eat at school!
- Step One – Heat up your chicken nuggets in the microwave.
- Step Two – Stick your nuggets in a thermos, they will stay warm for several hours and be ready for your child to eat at lunch time.
- Step Three – Be sure to send dipping sauce, napkin and silverware to use in their lunch.
You can make this lunch very simple or add lots of extras to jazz it up.
- Chicken Nuggets
- Dipping Sauce ( My son likes Ranch)
- Cheese stick
This lunch idea will take only a few minutes to make, heat up the nuggets while you are making your kids lunch and it’s ready to pack up while they are eating.
