Chicken taco recipe bento box lunches

These super tasty tacos couldn't be easier, or taste any better. And our kids can't get enough of them.

Good news, because they're very good for you, too.

Avocado is a great source of fat, lean chicken is rich in protein, and cilantro is full of vitamins, anti-oxidants and essential oils. The pectin in the apple cider vinegar helps promote digestion and the cabbage is full of fiber, a combo that offers a supercharged immune-system boost.

And with white corn tortillas, this Easy Chicken Tacos with Citrus Slaw makes for gluten-free bento box lunches, to boot.

Take it to go in your clear translucent bento's XL container with a Raspberry lid and an organic cotton napkin in Magenta and make them all a little envious.


  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons honey, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon grainy mustard
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups sliced cabbage, half red and half white
  • 1 tangerine or clementine orange, peeled and chopped
  • 1 chicken breast, coarsely chopped
  • 4 soft white corn taco shells
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped

How To

  1. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together, vinegar, oil, honey, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  2. Add cabbage and toss.
  3. Add orange segments and stir to combine.
  4. Arrange tacos, and fill with chicken, slaw, and top with guacamole.
  5. Eat two now and pack two for later in your bento's XL lidded container.


For a vegetarian option swap the chicken for any mild veggie protein like a medium tofu, whether in cubes, strips or slices. The chicken has a very mild taste here as the other ingredients bring the zing, so you can substitute it easily. If you want a little smoky flavor, try our tempeh.
