Chicken Seasoning Bento with chicken

Today’s bento is a Chicken Salad. I tried sprinkling chicken seasoning on the chicken while it was in the frying pan, but the spices were all stuck in the bottle so I had to tip it upside side down with the lid off and then a whole chunk came out and covered the meat with a thick layer. Well I like Chicken Seasoning so I didn’t even try to take any out. This was the tastiest chicken ever! Very salty though! IΒ  think I even got a little giddy from the amount of salt there was in it! I had some lovely mixed lettuce leaves which are from a convenience pack, ready cut and washed so I got some interesting colours for the background and because there was plenty of it, I didn’t skimp with the greenery this time! I put a chequered apple and a chequered cucumber chunk in there and some tulip carrots. The Rice Ball is just plain rice with nori stars on it, and the tomatoes have sesame seeds sprinkled on them. I made 3 of these and the kids and I had one each today for lunch. The baby is now able to feed himself pretty much, but the chicken was far too salty for him – he just stuck to the salad and his onigiri.

By the way, I tried cutting the raw chicken breast with an owl shaped metal Cookie Cutter. The cutter just bent and crippled over. So we ended up with just regular straight chicken strips. But they were sooo tasty! Finger licking good! πŸ˜€ My tongue has gone a bit numb though now from the saltiness. I think we’d better not have any moreΒ  salt for 2 weeks! πŸ˜€

  1. Hehe! That happened to me just the other day when I was making my swiss chard. The garlic salt shaker lid came off and dumped a whole glob of garlic salt (good thing I mix my own because I don’t add as much salt to mine) It tasted really good too, so i changed the name to Garlic Swiss Chard!

    The chicken looks good in strips, and I love your checkerboard cuke and apple!

  2. Looks delicious!! Good to know it is hard to cut out chicken shapes, I won’t try it for fear of hurting my lovely cookie cutters! πŸ˜€

  3. You’re so funny with your salty comments! I’ve always admired the technique you used on your apple and cucumber but I have no idea how to do it!

  4. Haha, I’ve had that happen before…with chili powder!!

    Maybe you could try using the point of a knife to follow the outline of the cutter on the chicken? I think that would work if the shape wasn’t overly detailed. Maybe I’ll try it next time I cook chicken and then let you know. πŸ™‚

  5. Yeah the outline was there but it was a long owl and a thick piece of Chicken Breast. I saw on Marisa’s blog (All in good food) that she has these amazing sharp knives that can slice the chicken breast really thinly horizontally so then I think it would probably be easier to try cutting shapes from the meat that way. I seriously need to get some sharp knives, or knife sharpeners!

  6. hahhahaa! The chicken meat must be so tough that it bent your cutter! Anyway, if they are tasty… they are tasty in whatever shapes!

  7. Almost miss this post … Perfect rice ball! Looks yummy and so many colors too. Poor cutter … hope nothing seriously damage πŸ˜‰
