Instructions
  1. If desired, toss cucumber with any optional seasonings to punch up the flavor.
  2. Arrange bell pepper, cucumbers, chicken, olives, and hummus in a lunch container (or multiple if needed). Keep crispbread and prunes separate to avoid them getting soggy. Pack the chocolate square on its own.
Recipe Notes

If you’re roasting your own chicken, rub chicken breasts with a bit of oil and seasonings, and bake in a 400°F oven for 15-20 minutes, or until chicken reaches 165°F.
