Healthy Meal Prep
Makes: 7 meals
Takes: 35 minutes
Lasts: Should store for 2 to 3 days in fridge and
4 weeks in freezer depending

Ingredients:

  • 600g chicken breast thinly sliced
  • 500g washed long grain white rice
  • 1 red chilli, sliced
  • 3 servings of tender stem broccoli
  • 4 servings of whole leaf spinach
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 sliced red onion
  • 2 stock cubes(chicken or maggi)
  • 3 heaped table spoons of smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of thyme
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste

Method:

  • Boil the washed white rice in salted hot water
  • Using a, non stick large frying pan, heat some fry light spray
  • Add sliced onions, the red chilli and chicken andย fry until slightly browned
  • Dissolve the two stock cubes in some hot water (to make stock water) and add to pan
  • Add peanut butter, lemon juice and thyme
  • Add 1 cup of hot water until at desired, (sauce like) consistency
  • Leave to simmer until chicken is cooked and add salt and pepper to taste
  • Boil broccoli until slightly undercooked / still crunchy (this is to avoid over cooked vegetables as you will be reheating these me and and thus cooking further)
  • Serve rice and chicken into desired portions – add broccoli to 3 meals, spinach to 4
  • Leave to cool completely before adding the fresh spinach and storing in fridge or freezer. When I prep I usually eat one for dinner, store two in the fridge and freeze four

Enjoy!ย
