This Sweet & Sour Chicken Bento uses the leftover from my Ootoya’s Sweet & Sour Chicken recipe for a delicious portable lunch! Served with steamed rice, ramen egg & Japanese potato salad on the side, it can be put together easily with some planning ahead.



  1. Pack steamed rice in 1/3 of bento box and let it cool.
  2. Reheat Ootoya's Sweet and Sour Chicken in a frying pan till heated through. Transfer them to a small plate and let them cool.
  3. Meanwhile, put Ajitsuke Tamago, Potato Salad, and cherry tomato in the bento box.
  4. When Sweet and Sour Chicken is cool, pack in the bento box.
  5. Cool down completely before closing the bento box to avoid condensation.
