Another recipe that I've adapted from JustBento.com. Any ready to eat sausage will work in this, and I think bacon would be good as well. The peas could also be replaced with corn, sauteed mushrooms, or whatever else sounds good to you.
From Just Bento.com This is one of my favorite things to take for lunch! It's so simple, yet the salt brings out the wonderful flavor of the chicken, and crisping the skin in the pan makes it taste even better. I like to salt the chicken the night before, cover, and refrigerate overnight; then cook in the morning, although you could do the whole thing the night before.
This is an easy starter that combines two of my favorite ingredients- artichoke hearts, and clams! If you can't find Spanish preserved artichoke hearts, substitute canned quartered artichoke hearts. Posted for ZWT5
I recently took a cooking class, and this was one of the recipes we made. I've changed it up a bit to use ingredients I keep on hand most of the time. This is a quick and easy side dish, and goes well with chicken, pork or seafood.
From JustBento.com This is another of my lunchtime favorites! I usually use 1 small thigh, and put it in the marinade the night before. In the morning, I quickly cook, cool, and pack in my lunch with some vegetables for a complete lunch. Note- The smaller you cut the chiken, the faster it will cook through.
From Fine Cooking, Dec 2011. I've adapted these a little bit, using less leek than the original called for. The original also called for 4 small sweet potatoes, which I've never found; the ones I get are a pound or more so I've adjusted the cooking time to reflect this. If you can find small ones, cut back the first baking time to 30 minutes.
