Mealthy Tip

Have you found yourself getting bored always cooking with chicken breasts? Give boneless, skinless chicken thighs a try! Not only are they inexpensive and delicious, but they are also very easy to cook. They also tend to stay more tender and juicy throughout the cooking process.

Made this for lunch prep this week and it's really quite delicious and easy to make. I used chicken breast instead of thighs with brown rice. I also crumbled some tri-color tortilla strips for added crunch when I am ready to heat this up for lunch.

The shredded chicken was really good! I used it in a burrito bowl for work, but used the rest of it for taco night.

I recently got into the meal prep world and this is one of my first forays. Excellent. The chicken is so tender. Agreed that some tortilla strips are a great add-on when you are ready to eat.

I liked this a lot. Ate it for 3 days in a row and it was still good. Yum.

These chicken burrito bowls are so good! Definitely one of my favorite meal prep dinners I don't mind eating over and over again.

I’ll be honest - I didn’t love the amount of prep that went into this. I know, it’s a meal PREP. Lol. I was insistent on using one pot for everything so that dragged it on. However, I will probably have to make this again because it’s some of the most delicious, tender chicken I’ve ever had and the flavors meld beautifully. I topped with some fresh avocado and it was soooo good. I love that it’s balanced as well. I’m probably going to sear all chicken before pressure cooking now. Great hack!

Kid approved!!! I used the chicken thighs but next time I’ll do the breast- it was good! Will make again!

First time I’ve ever tried this type of chicken in my pressure cooker. It was one of the most delicious chicken recipes I’ve ever made at home. Don’t skip the step at the end to make the sauce. Yummy!
