Monbento for Mama - Un-Sloppy Joe

Today's lunch for Mama (that's me) is filled with left overs. The kids have the next two days off and I did not plan any lunchbox food...But, I have to eat so I packed what we had left over from last night's dinner.

My Monbento is packed full of:
  • an un-sloppy Joe* pocket
  • grape tomatoes
  • left over pretzels and\
  • a few dried cranberries
* I found the original recipe on the Pillsbury website. I simply subbed a few healthier choices and doubled the recipe to guarantee left overs. This fed 6 hungry people for dinner and for a small lunch.

Unsloppy Joes

  • 2 lbs of ground chicken
  • 2 cans of tomato paste with pesto (6oz)
  • 2 cups of water
  • either two packets of Sloppy Joe seasoning mix or make your own HERE
  • 2 Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated biscuits
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cook ground chicken until thoroughly cooked through.
  • Add tomato paste, water and seasoning and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Roll out each biscuit into 6 inch rounds.
  • Top with 1/3 cup of meat mixture and about 1 TBS of shredded cheese.
  • Fold over half of the dough to create a pocket.
  • Seal edges with fork.
  • Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.
