Meal Prep 101: Grilled Chicken Breast
"When in doubt, grill a whole bulk of chicken bewbs and freeze them."
That is one of my meal prep mantras that I strongly stand by.
They are a great source of protein, minimum preparation required, you don't need to monitor closely when it is in the oven and perfect for a quick protein fix. The best thing about it is, you can create a variety of different flavoured chicken by mixing and matching your spices.
I usually make 0.8kg to 1kg worth of chicken bewbs to make my time worth and also, to make sure I have some excess as "emergency" protein in my freezer!
My favourite brand is Macro Free Range chicken from Woolworths as they have minimum fats to be removed. They are slightly more expensive than your local deli but it saves you some time from having to remove those yucky fats!
Grilled Chicken Breast
I like mine in strips, so I usually slice them into strips before marinating them.
Favourite grilled chicken breast marination:
1 TBSP of each - Turmeric,Garlic Granule, Curry Powder, Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Optional: Cayenne Pepper (if you like the extra spicy kick) & Lemon Pepper salt/ rock salt (for more flavour!)
Of course, you can always play around the herbs to suit your taste buds!
1.2kg of grilled chicken breast is enough for 2 weeks worth of lunches (around 8 meals) and here are some of my favourite ways to eat these grilled chicken breast:
Do you bulk cook your meals?
If not, try this trick and it will make your life way easier and convenient, I promise!
