Another quick post but this time with teriyaki chicken thighs from a large batch I cooked myself.
Pre-cooked chicken pieces are excellent for bento stash. Freeze each piece individually then it’s quick to reheat and pack into your bento.
For today’s box I chopped a large chicken thigh into bite sized pieces so it would fit snuggly in this round box.
Also on the menu…brown rice with diced takuan, furikake, edamame, enoki mushrooms, tomatoes,dried olives and a slice of heirloom melon.
The produce department were sampling the melons and I’m a “sucker” for samples. This time the tactic totally worked as these cantaloupes called “Tuscan Melons” are sweeter than candy!
Update: Here’s another 2 tiered bento with a similar arrangement…also with melon and enoki mushrooms!
