I saw someone make sushi out of cucumber on social media and thought it was such a great idea When I’m meal prepping, it’s usual for work - so the idea of taking raw fish wasn’t too appealing ♀️ So, I decided to use some rotisserie chicken to make a lunch “sushi” It honestly turned out way better than expected, and I know this will be one of my exciting go-to’s when packing work lunches!

6 oz skinless rotisserie chicken
2 low-fat string cheese
½ cup sushi rice (cooked)
1 bell pepper
¼ cup shredded carrots
2 tablespoon light mayo
1 teaspoon sriracha
1. Pull rotisserie chicken off bone, and remove skin. Prepare “sushi” ingredients by cooking sushi rice (this is stickier rice) and slicing peppers thin. Cut string cheese into halves.
2. Cut ends off of cucumber and hollow out the insides. Stuff cucumber with sushi rice, chicken, peppers, carrots, and cheese stick. Slice into 1 inch think slices.
3. Prepare spicy mayo by mixing light mayo and sriracha in a separate bowl. Lay “sushi” out on plate and drizzle with about ½ tablespoon mayo and enjoy!
*I served mine with a little wasabi and low-sodium soy sauce!*
