Easy Meal Prep doesn’t mean you have to compromise of the flavor factor. That’s not how we roll here on FlavCity. You can create this entire week’s meal in less than 30 minutes, without having to punish your taste buds.
Chicken Thigh Recipes
Chicken Thigh Recipes are sure to be a hit at every dinner table. If you want your chicken to be praised, then opt for the thighs rather than chicken breasts. The red meat in chicken thigh recipes makes it juicer and softer, with an added burst of flavor.
Seasoned with a dry spice rub, these chicken thighs don’t need extra marination time. While I recommend marinating all my chicken thigh recipes for at least twenty minutes at room temperature, I didn’t follow the same protocol here. Time’s of the essence here and so we start frying immediately.
Boneless Skinless Chicken Thigh Recipes
You will find that many of my easy meal prep have boneless skinless chicken thigh recipes. That’s because chicken thighs are easier to cook without the bones. When you’re short on time, getting the bones off can be a game changer. Plus, they have so much more flavor compared to chicken breasts.
Now there are some people who don’t prefer boneless skinless chicken thigh recipes. That’s because it’s a common myth that thighs are more fattening because they contain more fat than chicken breasts. While they do have a higher fat content, the fat is the good kind.
The mono-saturated fat in your chicken thighs aids weight loss, lowers cholesterol level and lowers the risk of cancer and heart diseases. With chicken thighs being more flavorful, I tend to prefer boneless skinless chicken thigh recipes for my meal preps.
Brussels Sprouts Recipes
I like to pair my protein with some veggies. So in this recipe, I choose one of my much-loved Brussels Sprouts Recipes.
My roasted Brussels sprouts aren’t something your mama cooks. Firstly, they don’t give off the same stinky smell while baking. Secondly, they are crispy and caramelized on the outside and creamy on the inside.
The secret to my crispy Brussels sprouts recipes is in the baking tray. I place a baking tray inside the oven during the preheating process. Do you how that helps?
When I place my Brussels sprouts and the carrots on the tray, it immediately starts sizzling and cooking. Saves me some precious time. Also, the heated tray prevents the veggies from sticking to the bottom while baking. No more scraping off your roasted Brussels sprouts and the carrots!
