When it comes to chicken meal prep, there are those who picture bland, tasteless food. And then there are those who have already tried out my chicken meal prep recipes before.
This chicken meal prep is going to be easy. It’s going to be healthy. But what’s most important is that it’s going to be tasty. I have turned up the taste element, a notch higher in this easy chicken and rice recipe.
Fridays are for Chicken Meal Prep at Bobby’s Kitchen. In today’s meal prep, I’ll be creating one of my easy chicken breast recipes that’s best served with golden rice, and finished with spinach crunch peanut salad.
Easy Chicken Breast Recipes
If you know me, you know that I like dry marinades in my boneless Chicken Breast Recipes. In this recipe, I use muchi curry powder that’s heavy on the turmeric. One reason I prefer turmeric is that it has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic properties.
After marinating, I keep all my easy chicken breast recipes at room temperature for twenty to thirty minutes. That way they cook evenly and are soft to chew. While the chicken marinades, you can make the pomegranate dip.
When cooking the chicken, resist the impulse of turning and tossing your chicken over and over again. Let it cook for a good five minutes. You don’t want to ruin the golden crusty, seared top of your chicken.
Chicken and Rice Recipe
If there’s one power food combination, it’s chicken and rice for me. And this chicken and rice recipe is golden, it’s tasty and it’s spicy!
There are a thousand and one ways to pair your chicken and rice. In this chicken and rice recipe, I add a creative twist to my all-time favorite comfort food. I have done this by infusing spices and zest to both my rice and chicken.
When it comes to rice, I’m very particular. Check out my video to cook the perfect rice.
In this golden rice recipe, I start off my washing my rice with cold water to remove the excess starch to prevent clumping.
When cooking my golden rice, I fry them with the spices before on medium heat. That way the rice absorbs the flavor better and my turmeric rice gets their golden, nutty and earthy flavor.
Another secret to my creamy rice: I add coconut milk with my water. This adds a tropical flavor to the rice and ups the taste game. Complete the flavor ride with a good dash to seasoning. Next, cover the rice and let them cook.
Once all the water dries out, it’s super important to fluff your golden rice. Fluff the rice using a fork to avoid mushing your rice. Add in the rest of the ingredients and let the rice rest for a while.
Once the chicken meal prep parts cool down, you can transfer them into containers. This recipe will create five meals/servings.
