We're still really really excited for Finding Dory, so we had to make another themed lunch to get ready for it! I think we may also have to do a Finding Nemo watch party before Monday night's premiere.
In this bento, I decided to make a chicken salad since chicken salad and crackers are a favorite sandwich alternative around here. I did *consider* the idea of tuna salad, but then it seemed like we were eating Dory's friends, so chicken it is! I used leftover boneless skinless chicken breast that had been marinated in a tomato/garlic/basil blend. It made for a really awesome flavor combo! I always do my chicken salads with my mini chopper before adding in mayo to get a nice finely chopped meat.
Once mixed, I knew we had to use our blue fish silicone cup to hold a big scoop of the salad. There were part of a set of 4 critter cups I found years ago at Ross. I wish I could remember the brand, but the box has been long gone.
I added some crackers for salad and some chunks of gouda cheese to round out the main course. To the right, I added some fresh green grapes and an apple cinnamon bar, cut in half, for a treat. Since we are staying with our Dory theme, everything got a few extra under the sea themed picks. Lunch is packed in one of our EasyLunchboxes!
Don't forget to come back all week as we add in some more fun Finding Dory ideas and lunches for you!
