Andy is not a sandwich or salad person when it comes to packed lunches. But I love a good deli sandwich or sub! Sometimes I can convince Andy, but I know it is not his favorite! So I am always looking for something new, quick and easy for lunches!
I came across this kit while shopping at Walmart so I thought I would give it a try. It came with a garlic-ginger paste, Korean BBQ sauce and sesame seeds for topping. You could use beef, pork or chicken. So I decided to give chicken a go! I had some chicken tenderloins in the freezer, and I took them out the night before to thaw out.
The directions on the back were super easy to follow. You only had to add the protein and vegetables. The directions suggestion onions and peppers, but I also added zucchini and broccoli. I chopped all the veggies and cut the tenderloins into quarter sized pieces. Then you coat the chicken with the garlic-ginger paste. Heat a pan with oil at medium-high and add the chicken to brown on all sides.
Once the chicken has started to cook and brown, add the vegetables. Continue to simmer for another few minutes. Then add the Korean BBQ sauce and stir until well combined. Turn down the heat and allow the stir fry to simmer an additional 5-10 minutes. Serve over rice🍚 and top with sesame seeds. This was another quick and easy meal to prep. For a pre-mixed kit, I thought it turned out pretty good. It was delicious and filling. It became the perfect hot lunch on a rainy day. Andy enjoyed it as well. I think next time I would try it with another protein!
What do you pack for lunch besides sandwiches or salads? Do you have a quick and easy recipe that has become your go to lunch? Or have you found kits like this that you would recommend?! I’d love to hear!👇🏽
