Gluten free chicken nuggets micro greens salad Project Lunch Box

I am so excited to share my latest recipe for Attune Foods. Each month I use one of their awesome products in one of my very own recipe creations. This time I chose their Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal. These skewers are a healthy, delicious homemade alternative to chicken nuggets you would buy at the store. Over here we are big fans of super lean chicken breast recipes.

This chicken is awesome for Project Lunch Box. Enjoy with your favorite dips or slice and dice it into a fresh green salad. Also great with rice, quinoa or pasta. The choice is yours! I suggest preparing a Big Batch so you have meals for a few days.

It sure does look all pretty tucked inside a lunchbox, doesn’t it?

What do you think about freezing these? My kids love the frozen chicken tenders but….yuck….they’re disgusting!!! Would you par bake them then freeze, or bake them all the way then freeze them? I’m not great at freezing meats….beans and grains, yes….meat, not so much.


25 Marla February 16, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Very good question Shawna. I have not tried freezing these. If I did, I would cook them all the way. Let them cool. Pack skewers in a single layer with parchment or wax paper in between each layer. Pack all of that in a ziploc bag. To reheat I would probably heat them in a toaster oven or under a low broiler in you oven. Watch carefully so they don’t burn. Let me know how it turns out if you try :)


26 Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray (soon to be Rachel Cooks) February 16, 2012 at 10:34 am

Yum! Headed over to check it out!

Whoa! I’ll be trying these very soon! I think the kiddos would even eat these!
