If you’re looking for easy recipes as chicken meal prep before a major exam, here’s a recipe that won’t fail you.
When doing chicken meal prep, I prefer using dry rubs. They don’t take a lot of time and they rank high on the flavor meter. I am making this super easy for you by using ready-made spice rub- the Chinese five spice powder.
Just rub the spice powder along with a good seasoning of salt on the chicken thighs and you’re are done marinating. Using a non-stick pan, fry the chicken in two batches.
I always recommend frying in small batches in all my chicken meal prep recipes to give you a crispy cover and your chicken won’t taste like boiled meat.
Quinoa Fried Rice Recipe
There’s something about rice that you just can’t give up on them, especially fried rice. But when you’re on a weight loss program, fried rice is usually out of bounds. But I have found the perfect replacement for rice in any fried rice recipe.
It’s leftover Quinoa!
Quinoa is one of the latest, most versatile superfoods. Quinoa is the best healthy low carb alternative for your fried rice recipes. Replacing starchy rice with healthy quinoa, you get 15 times fewer carbs than rice. Plus it contains double the amount of protein and 5 grams extra fiber.
It’s gluten-free. It’s a complete protein. AND it’s a Kosher food.
The beauty of Quinoa is that you can replace them with rice, add them to your salads or even add them to your soups and tacos.
For this Quinoa recipe, I am making my version of the Quinoa Fried Rice Recipe. Replacing starchy rice with healthy Quinoa. Rice has a pretty high standard when it comes to fried rice. But believe me, this quinoa fried rice recipe would be something you would want to try out again and again.
When you ask me how to cook quinoa, I use two methods. You can cook it like rice or you can boil it like your favorite comfort food, pasta.
For fluffy, super tasty Quinoa every single time, let it sit for a few hours or overnight after cooking. You can also use leftover Quinoa. This helps prevent the mushy taste that could put your entire family off of Quinoa for the rest of their lives.
You can also check out my YouTube video on How To Cook Quinoa to see how I do it.
