@AeroLove: Tonight I made lemon pepper chicken with lemon rice and peas.  Super easy, and if you put the pea/rice mixture in the bottom of the bowl with the chicken breast on top it looks fancy, lol!  

Basically what I did was place the chicken in a ziploc bag, added some olive oil, add some lemon pepper seasoning (could also squeeze some fresh lemon juice into the bag) and just shake it all around (after closing the bag lol!).  It gets the chicken all coated nicely…then pop it into the oven at 350 degrees for about a half hour.

Then I just got some brown rice and followed the instructions on the box.  1 cup of brown rice + 1 cup of water = 2 servings of rice.  Once the rice starts getting softer I add some frozen peas.  Then they cook up with the rice =D and BAM…….add some olive oil/little bit of lemon pepper seasoning/juice from the chicken cooking over it/whatever.  And serve it up =) 

All of that can be cooked in like a half hour or so.  It’s all pretty easy and it only dirties up a baking dish and a little pan.

@AeroLove:  What kind of food/meat is his favorite? That would help.

One of the simpliest and yummiest lunches (IMHO) are grilled cheese sandwhiches with spicy mustard and tomato slices. Can also be served with tomato soup, but that’s kind of too tomato-y for my personal taste. ๐Ÿ™‚

When I am being really lazy I make salsa chicken.  You take two chicken breasts and put them in a glass baking dish.  Pour one can of Rotel over the top of the chicken breasts.  Bake at 350 degrees in the over for 45 minutes (make sure chicken is completely cooked through, no pink!)  Sprinkle with finely shredded cheddar and melt in oven for an additional 2-3 minutes.  Serve over instant brown rice with a side of steamed veggies (we like broccoli florets) or a salad.

Is he into breakfast?  Maybe make a big breakfast, like pancakes with fruit topping, eggs, and bacon.  You never have time to eat like that before you go to work right, so it would be fun to have someone make it for you on your lunch break.

Make panini! And serve with chips and soda!

Delicious, but not too much in the afternoon!

@AeroLove:  It really more about flavoring the chicken with the Rotel and there really isn’t much left of the tomatoes by the end of cooking.  You can easily push the tomatoes off the chicken for your portion.  Smile

Is he coming home for lunch or are you traveling to him?

You could probably do the same with a jar of green salsa instead of tomato salsa

This is like the most boring thing ever, but I’ve been eating turkey and cheese sandwiches for lunch…but here’s the cool part:  I bought the cajun smoked turkey from boar’s head, their sharpest cheddar, used sprouted grain multigrain bread, and smushed half an avocado on the sandwich.  They’ve been delicious.

 

I know it’s not glamorous, but it’s tasty!

I’m actually craving chicken salad right now–shredded cooked chicken, pineapple, celery and japanes mayo–yum!

I love the panini idea. A man does love a women who can make a good sandwich ๐Ÿ˜‰

Or alternatively I made baked chicken thighs last night and I packed them up for his lunch today. I also gave him a whole wheat & flax sandwich thin. A small salad with a little cheese, sunflower kernels, and dressing on the side. An avocado sliced up to either eat on his salad or his sandwich thin with the chicken. And some fruit and a piece of chocolate.
