Ferb, from the cartoon Phineas and Ferb. My boys used to love watching this cartoon. Why Ferb, and not Phineas?

Well, I love that Ferb has green hair! All I needed to do was to trim the floret of broccoli and stick it into the rice! And he's got a bigger and longer face than Phineas. Just the right size to cover the rice partially. The face was assembled while the chicken was baking in the oven.

In the bento, there is ovenbaked Rotisserie Chicken Thigh Fillets, ovenbaked baby corn, rice, carrots and broccoli. I love using the oven to bake the chicken thigh fillets. Minimum cleaning up. This bottle of McCormick Rotisserie Chicken seasoning is a must-have in my pantry.

  • Debone the 2 chicken thighs, clean and pat dry with a paper kitchen towel. Do note that the cooking time will be longer if you can chose not to debone the chicken thigh.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning on both sides of the chicken thigh fillets.
  • Place the fillets in the tray with the skin side up.
  • Spray a little cooking oil onto the skin of the fillets.
  • Bake in the oven at 400F for about 25 minutes.
  • Coat the baby corn with some oil.
  • Season with a little sea salt.
  • Place the baby corn into the tray of chicken fillet, 15 minutes into baking the chicken thigh fillets.
  • Remove the tray of chicken fillets and baby corn from the oven when done. Let cool and cut chicken fillet into strips before putting them in the lunchbox.

If you bake the chicken fillets long enough, the skin will be crispy. Do not spray too much oil onto the skin, as oil does come out from the chicken during baking. You don't want your chicken fillets to be soaking in oil when cooked.

Time to search for more ovenbaked chicken recipes!
