At the start of the new year, many of us get serious about our meal prep. It's easier to curb the cravings for our holiday sweet tooth if we already have meals waiting and ready for us in the fridge. This spicy chicken from Pinch of Yum is the perfect solution and it's cooked and ready to pop in the fridge for the week after just seven minutes.
That's right — in the time it takes to fill my suburban with gas you can make dinner or lunch for every single day this week. Where are your excuses now, huh?
It's easy to get overwhelmed with meal preparations. Sometimes it feels as though you're inundated with ingredients and the task of prepping for an entire week is insurmountable — especially when prepping for more than one person or an entire family. This recipe is here to swoop in and save the day (think: Wonder Woman in a glass storage container).
Rice and chicken are cooked in a short seven minutes in the Instant Pot and then peppers, beans, and nuts are added in when portioning out. Y'all — that's it. BOOM. This meal prep is extra simple, big on flavor, and melts the stress away from the process.
Best of all, there's room to make it your own with your favorite fresh salsa or even cooking your own beans ahead of time. It's flexible and customizable and a perfect platform for those who want to prep but fear the table of little tiny containers laid out before them!
