a, um, kind of half-eaten bento
Yeah... so I totally forgot to snap a picture before I started digging in. Oops.
Anyway, this is one of the most stupid-simple (yet tasty!) bento I've ever made. Plain brown rice, microwave-steamed broccoli, and sesame chicken. It took like ten minutes, and most of that was waiting for the chicken to cook through, during which time I was also making breakfast. Bento really doesn't have to take much time or effort once you get the hang of it; it's an almost seamless integration into our schedule. Low-stress is the name of the game!
The sesame chicken was made by taking pieces of chicken thigh, pressing them on a place of black sesame seeds, and then cooking them in a bit of oil. However, I kind of forgot to put anything else on them, so they were kind of bland. Needed salt, or soy sauce, or something to add flavor.
So it was a pretty bland bento, but nutritious and definitely not bad. Simple wins.
