With lightly seasoned chicken breast, cherry tomatoes, and generous chunks of your favorite cubed cheese, these Chicken Skewers with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce are the perfect kid friendly lunch box meal!

The REALLY cool thing about these is that if you prep the chicken breasts along with the chicken used in the previous Southwestern Chicken Salad post, you can cut your efforts in half and cook once for two tasty meals!  One for you and one for kiddo, the whole family will be happy.

We all know that anything on a stick is BETTER.  Pancakes on a stick? Yep.  Sausage on a stick?  Of course.  Popsicles? I mean, YES.  So while this meal is so simple, it’s also kid pleasing because pulling the ingredients off one by one and dipping them into the PERFECT Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce is the stuff kid dreams are made of.  You cannot go wrong with these Chicken Skewers!

Some big tips are making sure you cut your skewers to size in your kiddo’s lunch box (I cut the sharp end off to make it school friendly), make sure your cheese chunks are big enough so they don’t crack when being skewered, and make sure you pack PLENTY of dipping sauce.  This sauce reminds me of a certain nationwide chicken place that was a staple of our childhood, but even better because it’s made with high quality nutritious ingredients!  These Chicken Skewers with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce are the perfect, fun, finger food!

If all else fails and you run out of skewers, simply pack the individual items in compartments in your bento box, and you still have an amazingly well rounded meal.  Your kiddos will be the center of the lunch room with these fun finger food addition to the lunchbox lineup!  We hope you love them!
