Veggie-Chicken Meal Prep? Yes, Please!

It’s been one week since I’ve launched my meal prepping and I have to say that it was a success! It was so nice being able to go to my fridge and put together a well balanced meal in less than 10 minutes. Lunches were painless, as I usually substituted carbs for a garden salad using ingredients that I already had in my fridge. After deciding to prepare a single package of the ground turkey meat and prepping for 2, I had to start cooking again on Thursday, but I think that’s still pretty good! If you are only prepping for yourself, you should have definitely been good for the week!

This week I’m thinking chicken! There are sooooo many different ways to prepare this delicacy, but since we’re going for simple, I’ve decided to recommend a simple pan-baked veggie option that can be ready in 30 minutes! It’s also a great gluten-free option for those trying to make even healthier choices. Simply chop and season the chicken with the spices listed below (you may add or remove ingredients based on your personal preference and/or health needs), place in a baking tray along with the vegetable ingredients, and drizzle with olive oil. I also personally enjoy adding vegetable seasoning to my veggies when roasting  them–gives it an extra kick. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes and voila! Suggested ingredients are listed below. Let me know if you decide to try it out as well as how it works for you!

Happy planning!
