Chicken Bistro Box

Bistro boxes make lunches easy! This bistro box contains lean protein with grilled chicken, whole grains and fresh veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes plus Ranch for dipping.

With a few simple ingredients (including leftover chicken from dinner the night before), kids can mix and match their own bistro box to fit their taste buds.

Nutrition Tip: Full of vitamin C, tomatoes actually taste sweeter when they’re kept at room temperature (chilling them dulls the flavor). Cucumbers are 96 percent water, so they’re an extra-hydrating veggie for kids.

Let’s talk about these adorable Tomberry Tomatoes from Nature Fresh Farms. They’re about the size of a blueberry and are perfectly poppable and snackable.

Veggies pair perfectly with Ranch for dipping and I love these individual containers of Litehouse® Homestyle Ranch dip – they’re easy to throw into lunchboxes, no mess required!
