  • 100 g skinless chicken breasts grilled, sliced
  • 8 wholemeal wheat crispbreads
  • 20 g avocado mashed, (approx. 1 tbsp)
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes quartered
  • ¼ red (Spanish) onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery cut into snack-sized pieces
  • ground black pepper to taste (optional)


  • Combine your tomatoes, dill, onion, and black pepper (if you’re using it) in a bowl, and toss to create a simple salad.
  • Put each of the lunchbox components—the salad, the chicken, the avocado, and the celery sticks into different compartments in a container, or into small separate containers.
  • This meal is designed to be enjoyed picnic-style. When it comes time for lunch, it’s as easy as assembling the different pieces on the crispbread, or enjoying them on their own.
  • Hint: If you’re taking this to work with you, a squeeze of lemon juice stirred through the avocado will help prevent it browning before meal time.
