  3. Wash lettuce and tomatoes and pat dry. Place nicely in the bento box.
  4. Pack cooled Chicken Teriyaki on top of lettuce.

  7. Sprinkle furikake on top of slightly cooled rice.
  8. Cool down completely before closing the bento box.

Recipe Notes

[Please read FOOD SAFETY TIPS .]

If you are using a thermal bento box like Thermos, you do not need to cool down before closing lunch box.

This lunch is for my 6-year-old son.
