I spent way more time on this bento than I should have. But I really needed to focus on something just for me for a little while...
There's a bit of a leftover remake to this one. I made the little chicken patty things with leftover chicken from Sunday dinner at my parents' house. Recipe will follow, providing I can still see the screen when I get that far... Along side the cute little chicken patties, I have broccoli and an onigiri from the freezer stash. I'm getting the hang of using those things. This one I was able to just pick and munch. There's also a bottle of potsticker sauce for the chicken patties.
The other layer has a nectarine, carrots, hummus, a few grapes, and a babybel cheese. I love and adore babybels, but I won't buy them anywhere other than costco, because I refuse to pay a lot for them. So this is the first one ever to make it to a bento.
1/2 chicken breast, cooked.
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon Mrs Dash. Whatever kind you feel.
2 heaping tablespoon flour (I used wheat)
Water until sufficiently moist.
You could also add shredded zucchini and carrots to this. And I bet it would be amazing. I'll have to try it once my new Salad Shooter gets here.
Anyway. Shred the chicken. Mix the ingredients. The batter should be moist, but not runny. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Put small dollops of the chicken mixture into the lightly greased pan. Slightly flatten. Cover. Cook for 3 minutes or so. Flip. Cover, and wait until cooked through. Maybe another 3 minutes. Serve with yummy sauce that you love. I love potsticker sauce.
