well, i don’t think anything i could have done tonight would have topped the Watchmen bento in coolness factor. almost 350 sites have referred visitors to it! crazy, huh? anyway, tomorrow’s bento isn’t nearly as exciting but it is definitely tasty and healthy.  i feel a lot better about giving the kiddo chicken nuggets for lunch when i know they’re made from hormone-free chicken and baked with healthy ingredients instead of fried in mystery fat.

on the menu:

  • 6 pecan crusted chicken nuggets
  • sugar snap peas
  • nectarine slices
  • 1 biscuit
  • condiments: honey (in the Bee Movie bottle – so cool, Walgreens: $0.35) & butter
  • 1 large Lemonhead candy (kiddo and i LOVE these)

Here’s the recipe for pecan chicken.  I usually modify it a little by cutting the chicken into nuggets instead of strips and I don’t put in as much cayenne.  Guess i’m not as into BAM as Emeril is :P   The recipe is really quick and easy, and cleanup isn’t bad either, especially if you cover your baking sheet with parchment paper.
