Chicken TAcos. Easy Packed Lunch.

Packing lunch should be a easy process. No one wants to get up super early and cook an entire meal that they aren’t even going to eat until later in the day. Most of the recipes we use are premade the night before as dinner, or in this case made earlier in the week and used for multiple recipes! I love either grabbing a rotisserie chicken or cooking 3 to 4 chicken breasts on Sunday to use in our menu throughout the week. Pull out 1/2 of a breast, slice it up, and you have endless options. Like these chicken tacos!

But before we get into the recipe I have to ask… Have you entered the MightyNest Giveaway? You can win $100 of lunch gear for your kids AND enter your school for the opportunity to win!  The backpack is seriously the cutest thing I have ever seen and my five year old can’t stop talking about the amazing reusable utensils. Personally I’m loving the four section lunch holder! Weather your children are heading into kindergarten or 6th grade, this gear is going to make back to school that much easier!

1/2 chicken breast, cooked and cut
1/4 cup rice
1-2 tablespoons guacamole

Pack in individual containers and let them build their tacos when the time comes.

I just purchased a million of these reusable sandwich bags. They are perfect for storing tortillas or any bread based item, and the design is amazing!


We like this simple guacamole, but you can find individual serving packs in the veggie aisle of the grocery store. Salsa and sour cream served in little silicone baking cups are also great alternatives.
