How I Cook my Chicken & Meal Prep

February 22, 2015

Don’t you just hate it when you eat a piece of chicken and its just… Dry.  Or even worst… if you bought it from the store and within seconds you’re just… BLOATED? Why? Sodium overload. Ewwwwwwww…

So most of the time, I make my own. Here is how I like to Marinate Chicken Breasts:

Ingredients
  • Chicken Breasts (about 1 pound/16oz)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Lemon Juice
  • Herbs (oregano, basil, cilantro, chili peppers etc.)
Instructions
  1. Place chicken in a shallow dish or 1-gallon sealable plastic bag
  2. Add seasonings or marinade of your choice and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 12 hours

I love cooking all my meals as soon as I wake up. Now how do I manage to make breakfast, prep all my food and get ready in an hour? ^_^

THE OVEN.

The oven is my best friend. I roll outta bed, walk over to the kitchen and set the oven on BROIL HIGH. While the oven is heating up, I then…

  1. Take out two non-stick rectangular baking trays
  2. Put foil on top of baking trays (easy clean up)
  3. Spray olive oil spray (or your preferred non stick spray)
  4. Put my veggies (I love green beans, broccoli, zucchini or asparagus) on one dish, my protein on the other
  5. Spray more non stick spray on top (gives it that crispy texture that I love when broiling 😉
  6. Put the food in the oven and let it broil high (about 20-30 minutes)
  7. Get ready for the day

By the time I am done getting ready, my food is cooked! I then divide my food into about 3-4 containers and set it aside to cool before I package it up for the day. While my food is cooling, I cook my eggs and viola! all my food is ready for the entire day!!!

How do you guys prep your food/meals?
