Fiesta lime grilled chicken

Happy Mother’s Day!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday 🙂  We had my parents over for dinner to celebrate and I made this bento from the leftovers.  In the bento: fiesta lime grilled chicken, cucumbers, green beans, tabouleh (with cilantro, avocado, red onion, lime juice, and tomato), and watermelon.

For the grilled chicken, I marinated it in a lime and garlic sauce.  Then served it with sautéed assorted peppers and red onion with cilantro and lime juice.  The topping is really what made the dish.  It has to be done on extremely high heat so that it sears.  Add a little salt and pepper and… delicious!  It would have been great with some chopped jalapeños!

Happy Bento-ing!
