Have leftover chicken and veggies? Bring the kids into the kitchen and let them help you thread the pieces onto skewers (or coffee stirs for little ones) for a simple lunchbox meal. I love the flavor twist to give the skewers some sweetness by adding pineapple and teriyaki sauce.

 

Meal Prep Tip

  • Grill or cook extra chicken breasts on the weekend and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. When ready to assemble the skewers, cut cooked chicken into pieces.
  • Prep veggies on the weekend by cutting various bell peppers into chunks and storing in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Skewers can be prepped the night before and stored in an airtight container or lunchbox in the refrigerator.
  • Make this recipe with your children and talk about the various colors and flavors of the peppers. I love letting my girls use these knives to help cut everything into pieces.  (affiliate link) StarPack Nylon Kids Knives
