Pineapple BBQ Chicken Meal Prep


Hey guys! I hope you’ve had a beautiful weekend thus far and have saved a bit time to do some meal prep for the week! I didn’t have plenty of time within the kitchen this previous week, however I did find yourself “meal prepping” the one profitable recipe that I had, so I’m going to share that. This Pineapple BBQ Chicken Meal Prep is tremendous straightforward and is a kind of lunches that I stay up for consuming every single day, even after having it for a couple of days in a row!

For this meal prep I paired my Skillet Pineapple BBQ Chicken with wealthy and Savory Coconut Rice, and just a few easy broccoli to get my greens in. Frozen broccoli florets is severely my go-to vegetable for meal preps as a result of it’s easy, the flavour goes with nearly all the pieces, and it holds up properly within the fridge. I might have preferred to have completed some recent snow peas for this meal, however sadly I couldn’t discover them on the grocery retailer, so hold that in thoughts as a very good choice for this meal.

This Pineapple BBQ Chicken Meal Prep is a bit completely different as a result of every of the recipes makes about 6 servings, so you may really prep six meals if you happen to’d like. If you solely wish to prep four days at a time like I do, you’ll have some leftovers. You have a few choices right here. While you technically can freeze further two meals as-is, I’d charge this as only a “so-so” freezable meal. The sauce on the hen received’t be the most effective after freeze-thaw, however not horrible. Other choices are to both prepare dinner solely four hen thighs as an alternative of 6 (I’d make the identical quantity of pineapple and sauce to make it straightforward on myself), or make all six and lower every of the additional two hen thighs in half and serve 1.5 thighs with every meal. Leftover rice really freezes very properly, or use it in different methods all through the week, like breakfast bowls. I selected the breakfast bowl choice as a result of I really like my breakfast bowls! 😀
