Easy Make and Take Lunch Recipe Ideas is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Minute® Ready to Serve Organics.
Sometimes getting lunch together for my husband to take with him to work can be a challenge. But over the weekend I tried something different...I prepared an Easy Make and Take Lunch Recipe of grilled chicken with an assortment of vegetables.
I grilled a few boneless, skinless chicken breasts along with zucchini, peppers and onions. I also steamed broccoli...which we love.
I even prepared a salad. I divided everything up in these really great containers and lunch for the coming week was ready.
And to go with my husband's lunch, we're trying these new Minute® Ready to Serve products: Minute Ready to Serve Organics. They're the perfect go-to pantry staple that can easily be taken with my husband to work in the morning.
Easy Make and Take Lunch Recipe Ideas
Make sure you print out the recipe for this easy honey dijon marinade at the bottom of the post. It's so delicious!
Easy Marinade for Grilled Chicken
- ⅓ cup Honey
- 3 TBS. Whole Grain Mustard
- 2 TBS Dijon Mustard
- 2 TBS Olive Oil
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- Combine the above ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Pour the marinade on chicken and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
- Grill the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Grilled zucchini is brushed lightly with olive oil and cooked for a few minutes on each side until fork tender. Season with salt and pepper after it has cooked.
Slice the onion and red pepper thinly so everything cooks fast and evenly.
Everything is laid out and ready to pack up!
Divide the food and create the lunches.
All my husband has to do is select which Minute Ready to Serve Organics package he wants to enjoy with his Make and Take Lunch every morning before he leaves for work.
You can eat them straight from the cup too! In just 60 seconds you have a fully cooked, perfect single portion of rice to go along with lunch. And the best thing is you'll never get bored with your lunch since there are several flavorful and wholesome varieties.
