Honey Baked chicken - Lemon n Spice Kids Lunchbox ideas

There is no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to become a good one !!!

I like to cook. Well, most days :) .  This is the 4th week  of Rithika's 3rd grade and I was able to send homemade lunch everyday morning with her at 8.00am. Last year I used to drop her hot lunch at the school lunch table around 11.45 and she will eat it during the lunch break from 12.00 pm to 12.30pm. Same sort of food, but lots of work for me like driving again, coming back, again pickup at 2.30 etc. This year we started bicycling to school and it feels absolutely wonderful. A little bit of exercise in the morning and we reach before the first bell with more planning.

Beetroot chips, apples, baked chicken, baby spinach and blueberries, Raisins

In her Planetbox today :
  • Beetroot chips
  • Apples
  • Baked Chicken 
  • Baby spinach and blueberries

Baked chicken Recipe for kids lunchbox :

Clean and cut one chicken thigh into small pieces. In a bowl, mix 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp Pepper powder, 1/2 tsp of ginger garlic paste, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp of honey. Add the chicken pieces to the marinade and combine well. Transfer to a sheet tray lined with foil and Bake in a 400F preheated oven for 25  minutes. Insert toothpicks on each piece to make it easy to eat. (I marinate the chicken pieces previous night and keep in the lower bottom of the refrigerator overnight to save time in the morning)
