Chicken Dippers Lunch

Chicken Dippers Lunch

Makes 2 to 3 lunches

Next time you prepare boneless, skinless chicken breast for dinner, cook a couple extra and slice them into strips for an easy lunch. In this recipe, we take leftover chicken strips and quickly make a "buffalo wings" inspired healthy lunchbox that's sure to please. Can be made and packed the night before.

Ingredients: 
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1/2 pound), cut in strips, cooked
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • dash or two hot sauce (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cane sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons blue cheese dressing for dipping

Method: 

Combine vinegar and Tabasco (optional) in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Roll cooked chicken in vinegar to moisten. Combine paprika, sugar, salt and pepper in a sealable sandwich bag and shake to combine well. Place moistened chicken strips in the bag with seasonings and shake well to coat.

Pack chicken (still in its seasoning bag) with a lunchbox container of blue cheese dressing on the side.

Keep cold.

Complete your Chicken Dippers lunchbox with: celery sticks, corn and grain tortilla chips, apple sauce, an oatmeal cookie, milk or alternative beverage.
