Outside of the Lunch Box

Hi and welcome to Captain Culinary’s school edition. Sorry I have not been making blog posts. School started and I’m only in the sixth grade.  Don’t blame me it’s a lot to manage when you’re only 11 years old.

Don’t be the normal boring kid that brings PB&J’s for lunches.  That just isn’t right. On the first day of school I brought garlic chicken with fresh mozzarella, chickpeas, tomatoes and cucumbers in a bowl. During the second week of school, my favorite lunch was a three cheese grilled cheese that I made. Tomorrow I am having bacon wrapped chicken bites… BOOM! Also, if you are a grape lover and a candy lover you will love cotton candy grapes. And can you believe they are naturally grown like that! No added sugar no preservatives pure cotton candy flavored grapes.  Pink cotton candy flavored not blue. We found them at Harris Teeter and at Whole Foods. I recommend whole foods that place is awesome I cannot lie.

Here’s how to make the bacon wrapped chicken bites

Step one: cut the chicken separating the tenderloin from the chicken breast.

Step two: cut the chicken into equal cubes. Why you ask? So that they cook evenly.

Step three: wrap them in bacon keeping it secure with a toothpick.

Step four: Roll it in chili powder and Brown sugar (mix that together before). Bake it for 30 minutes at 350° Fahrenheit or until the chicken looks done.

So here’s to a great year of school lunches. Remember think outside the lunch box. Please look for my next blog and comment if you want.

    Love your posts! I try to think outside of the lunchbox for my little girl who is just now experimenting with new foods at 9 months old. I think you’d be impressed with some of the food we’ve made over here: beef + leek + apple + spinach + broccoli. She also loved a mango, chia, coconut milk pudding we made. Hopefully she will continue to expand her palate and grow into a great eater! And I agree with you about Whole Foods. That place is awesome!

    P.S. I work with your mom 🙂
