Cooking at home has many benefits – it’s budget-friendly, it’s healthier, and you know exactly what’s going into your dish. But my favorite part about dinner is the epic lunch leftovers the next day.

Now there’s no need to stand in line for 20 minutes during your lunch break for that Chinese chicken salad with only 4 bites of chicken because with Reynolds™ heat & eat disposable containers, lunch leftovers has never been easier, or tastier.

These containers are a safe alternative to plastic containers, ideal for reheating in the microwave. They’re heat/leak-resistant, and they can easily go from freezer, to fridge, to microwave. That pretty much means you don’t have to bring home those dirty, smelly lunch containers anymore. Simply pack, microwave and dispose. Just be sure to remove the lid prior to reheating.

Done and done.

And I promise you. You’ll get some dirty, jealous looks when you walk into the office with this – chicken breasts topped with pesto (homemade or store-bought), fresh tomatoes (sun-dried tomatoes can be substituted) and melted mozzarella cheese.

It’s unbelievable quick and easy, made right in foil packets making it super easy for individual serving or for packing up your lunch!
