4 Hassle-Free Chicken Lunches for Those On-the-Go

Eating healthy on the go is a big challenge, especially when you have a hectic job that just won’t quit! Busy guys and gals know the struggle when noon rolls around. But nothing beats healthy homemade meals, especially when you can get a little help. Using precooked or leftover chicken can help you shave off prep time. Check out these four not-so-boring brown-bag recipes that’ll take your taste buds around the world.

1. Tuscan Chicken Salad Wrap

Wraps are the epitome of an easy, on-the-go lunch, and this zesty Tuscan chicken salad wrap is a case in point. It’s a balanced meal that is ready in minutes. Combine precooked chicken strips (or leftover chicken), white beans, spinach, tomato, cheese and basil — then wrap, roll and go. Recipe makes 2 servings at 1/2 wrap each.

2. Greek Chicken Couscous Bowl

Looking for a lunch idea straight out of the Mediterranean? Toss together a refreshing vegetable trio (lettuce, tomato and cucumber!) with fluffy couscous and savory grilled chicken. Drizzle with some Greek dressing, and dig in. Recipe makes 2 servings at 1 chicken bowl each.

3. Mexican Burrito with Chicken & Avocado

Why buy burritos when they’re so simple to make? Save time with precooked chicken (you can also use leftovers!) and budget-friendly staples like canned beans, shredded cheese, salsa and frozen corn. Then, step up your burrito game by adding creamy avocado and fresh lime juice. Wrap in foil, and pack for a homemade lunch. Recipe makes 3 servings at 1 burrito each.

4. Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Look forward to lunch with these flavorful Asian chicken lettuce wraps. They’re sweet, savory and filled with satisfying chunks of cooked chicken, mango and edamame. Packing tip: Keep the lettuce leaves separate from the chicken mixture, so it’s easier to reheat. Recipe makes 2 servings at 2 large lettuce wraps each.
