I don’t know about you but given the choice I would take a packed lunch over a shop bought one any day. With so much nastiness going into our food these days it is nice to know what we are actually eating. This means making your own food from scratch from good quality locally sourced (if possible) ingredients.
A lot of people don’t prepare their own lunch. When asked why the most common answer would be lack of time and energy, lack of ability to actually cook or simply a lack of good will. Making your own lunch can be fun 🙂
A few days ago I prepared a quick and easy Mexican chicken which we used as a filling in our lunch sandwiches.
All you need is 15 minutes and you can have a tasty fresh chicken sandwich on your plate.
- 2 skinless chicken breasts
- ½ cube of Knorr chicken stock
- 1 Mexican Knorr flavour pot
- 4 tbsp oil
- 2tbs of mayonnaise
Heat up a heavy bottom frying pan.
Cut your chicken into desired size – 1cm x 1cm cubes work for me.
In a medium size bowl mix oil, chicken stock and flavour pot.
Add the chicken chunks into the bowl and mix well massaging the flavours into the chicken.
Fry on the well preheated frying pan for 10 to 12 minutes; stir and toss well to ensure that all pieces of the chicken are cooked.
Remove from the heat and allow it to cool down a little.
Add mayonnaise and mix gentry.
Serve with your favourite bread or as an addition to salad.
My Mexicans Chicken went into a sandwich. As it contained mayonnaise I didn’t even butter the thins 😉
Then my Mexican Chicken sandwiches went into The Wrapper… a brilliant product perfect for packed lunches.
The Wrapper is a reusable sandwich wrapper. It costs £5.50 and it comes in many lovely designs. I totally love the idea behind it; no more wrapping our food in foil or paper. Now everyone has their own personal wrapper to keep their food fresh for longer.
The Wrapper is extremely easy to use:
And if it gets dirty you simply wipe it clean 😉
Not only is it perfect for packed lunches but it also doubles as an eating mat. No more crumbs in the car; no more eating from the dirty table in the park and no more unnecessary rubbish.
I hope that The Wrapper idea takes off and it becomes a must have product in every household. Can you even imagine how many tons of rubbish we could avoid if everyone swapped to it and simply wrapped their food in The Wrapper?
What do you think? Would you use The Wrapper in your own home?
