Most troublesome decision to make when it comes to meal prepping lunches is what can I make in Winter that will keep me satisfied? Here is my answer…
- 500g chicken breast
- Diced pumpkin
- 2-3 bunches of broccolini
- Brown rice
- Fresh herbs ( I use parsley or coriander)
- Cinnamon (to sprinkle over the pumpkin)
- Coconut oil (spray)
- Mingle seasoning (Garlic & herb)
As you can see I haven’t given you measurements for any of the ingredients other than the chicken as that is a rough estimate. This will depend on your daily calorie intake. For example I have around 100-120g of chicken per lunch to help hit my daily protein goal. So depending on the individual on how much of each you will need.
First coat the chicken in the seasoning and let it rest while you chop up the pumpkin into bite sized cubes and toss a drizzle of coconut oil over them and cinnamon and place in the oven at 180 degrees, cook for 35-40mins. I like to pan fry my broccolini for roughly 12-15mins in a little oil, salt + pepper and some crushed garlic. Microwave or bring the rice to the boil which ever method you prefer. Last thing is the chicken, once again depending on preference as to how you cook the chicken but I personally like to BBQ it. You can also pan fry the chicken if BBQ is not an option. Once you reheat the meal I sprinkle fresh herbs over the top.
