Chicken and Rice Patties

Chicken and Rice Patties
My kids adored these. They thought they tasted just like my fried rice. I wasn’t sure I would like them cold and while they are even tastier hot, they did taste great cold too.

I made these for school lunches, but they would make a great picnic food or made in mini muffin trays they would be a great finger food for a party.

Our current lunch box set up for the primary school kids

Kids Konserve lunch box review
I am often asked what do I use for a lunch box for my kids. The photo above shows the lunch box set up we are currently using for the primary school kids. We use:

This works well for us as we can:

  • add whole pieces of fruit if needed
  • the kids can have cut up fruit and veg for brain food
  • items can be made the night before and stay fresh
  • items can be easily kept separate
  • kids know what is for lunch and what is for recess
  • they can take single items out as needed
  • it can keep food cold
  • items don’t get crushed
  • and it is waste free
