Chicken with sundried tomato and mustard sauce

Thanks for the kind comments on my previous post regarding my thumb. The stitches are out now and the wound seems to be healing well. Here is my first bento after the incident (I made a couple of sandwiches but nothing fancy): parsley couscous, grilled asparagus and chicken with sundried tomato and mustard sauce. Just about everything was leftover from dinner. I just cooked about double the amount and packed the rest into bento boxes. They were in the fridge overnight and then ready to eat the next day without reheating. I placed them in insulated bags during the day and that worked well.


Recipe for the chicken is posted at Soy and Pepper.

Happy Bento-ing :)

I don't really know what went wrong here. It's a Pikachu, right. But a Pikachu like if it was drawn by a blindfolded 5-year old...

I hope my kid will recognize it... *sigh*
