locallunch lunch idea rules

  1. Must be able to make it the night before and keep it in the fridge overnight
  2. Must fit in a single lunch container all together
  3. Must be tasty enough to stop you nipping out to a locallunch spot!
  • 1 chicken breast
  • Herb garden salad leaves
  • Cucumber, julienne sliced
  • 6 Piccolini Tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 bunch spring onion, sliced
  • 1/2 white onion, sliced
  • 1 block egg noodles, cooked
  • Handful sesame seeds
  • Sesame oil
  • Light soy sauce
  • Pinch five spice seasoning

It’s pretty simple this one, which is really the idea of these locallunch lunch ideas, as you’ll work out from the rules above.

First off I get the chicken breast marinating while I’m sorting everything else out. In a bowl, sprinkle a pinch of 5 spice over the chicken and then add a few chugs off the soy sauce. sprinkle some seasme oil over that and try to cover it really well. Once you’re happy with it, sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top and pop it in a pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes.

Now you can get a pan of water up to the boil and stick a block of dried noodles in there to cook. While they’re sorting themselves out, start on your salad. It obviously doesn’t matter too much what you do here but if you use what I used, arrange the leaves as a little nest in the bottom of your container and arrange cucumber strips with halved tomatoes all around it, leaving a nice bed for the noodles.

In about ten minutes when they’re cooked, take them out to drain and then run some cold water through them as you stir. Check the chicken. If it’s juicy and looking done, take it out and carefully slice it into even strips before leaving it to cool. When it has done so, arrange the noodles on top of the salad and stack the chicken on top of them. Drop some sliced spring onion over it all and add some more of the seasoning to your own taste.

Cover it, fridge it and don’t forget it in the morning!
