If you need to make healthy school lunches for teenage athletes or active kids, you’ve come to the right place; because as a mom to 3 kids, I know what it’s like when an active kid can eat you out of the house.
While school sports are a great way for kids to get involved, socialize, and learn new skills, they also work up an appetite. And we all know that this means that the first words out of their mouth when they get home are… “I’m starving!” Right?
These easy school lunch ideas will keep them energized and ready to score the winning point every day since they have a good balance of protein, carbs, and healthy fats.
If you like the convenience and flavors of take-out, you are going to love this quick teriyaki chicken recipe.
Quick and easy skillet recipes are my kind of meals and this teriyaki chicken is no different. A 30 minute marinade for the chicken is the key to bringing together the flavors of this favorite take out meal. In a large skillet you’ll cook the chicken for about three minutes on each side.
The flavorful marinade, then becomes the sauce after reducing for a few minutes, after the chicken has finished. Serve on top of cauliflower rice, or steamed rice and garnish with green onions. There you have it! A quick dinner, that’s even better than take out!
The recipe is family sized so it’s perfect for dinner or as a thermos lunch. Check out how easy this recipe is to make!
Of course we all know how much better Teriyaki Chicken is the next day, making leftovers the perfect thermos lunch.
