Chicken Tender Salad

Serves 1

Why take lunch kits from the store when you can pack up this healthy chicken salad in just a few minutes? You’ll have fun putting together this interactive, "DIY" meal right at school! You can get creative and add or swap in a variety of additional ingredients, such as tofu instead of Rach’s Baked Chicken Tenders, or sliced grapes.


  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half

  • 1/4 English (seedless) cucumber, sliced in half lengthwise and cut into half moons

  • 1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped

  • 4 chicken tenders, breaded and baked, then cut into pieces on the bias

  • 1/4 cup honey mustard dressing

  • 1 cup baked corn chips, crumbled


Pack the cherry tomatoes and cucumbers together in a sealable plastic bag. Pack the remaining ingredients separately in your lunch box in sealable plastic bags or airtight containers inside one large container to serve as the "salad bowl." Once it’s time for lunch, combine all the ingredients in the bowl and give it a good shake to make a healthy chicken salad. Yum-o!
