Meal Prep

My husband and I love getting in the kitchen and preparing meals like this one in advance so we have healthy lunch and or dinner options in the refrigerator ready for heating up. I can’t tell you how nice it is to just grab the container, heat it up and have a quick healthy meal in minutes. One of my favorites is this spicy honey chicken with roasted vegetables and brown rice. It is so simple, but very flavorful and filling. Give yourself a good hour and a half or so and you’ll have lots of food prepared for the week.

Meal Prep Ideas

The nice part about this recipe is you can use your favorite vegetables, whatever you have in the fridge. I really enjoy carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, onions, etc.

My secret sauce is literally 2 ingredients for the chicken. Franks RedHot Wings Buffalo sauce and honey. Try it. So so good mixed with roasted chicken.

It helps to get everything organized before you get started with your containers. I put everything in bowls so I can easily get my containers ready for the refrigerator.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked brown rice
  • 4 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce for “wings”
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 8 cups Roasted Vegetables of your choice I used green beans, cauliflower, broccoli and carrots. I use THIS method for roasting most of my vegetables

Instructions

  • Place chicken into a large skillet over medium low heat. Stir in hot sauce and honey, stirring to combine. Cook for 5 minutes, until hot. Remove and transfer to a large bowl. Place brown rice into a large bowl and place roasted vegetables into a large bowl.
  • Get out 4-5 medium tupperware containers. Layer the bottom with about 1/2 cup of brown rice, 1 cup of cooked chicken and 1 heaping cup of roasted vegetables. Cover with lid and place in refrigerator until ready to heat up for lunch or dinner.
  • Note: To roast vegetables….Place vegetables of your choice onto a large baking sheet. I like to line my baking sheets with either a split liner or tin foil. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and season with pinches of salt and pepper. Bake at 375 for 15-25 minutes depending on how large your vegetables are. Use a fork to test vegetables after about 15 minutes. If it pierces easily with a fork, they are ready to go!

  1. I love rice bowls, but for some reason I’ve never though to make extra for lunches – so easy and healthy when you use brown rice like this – great idea!

    Do you ever make the chicken in the crock pot? I’m not sure how the honey would hold up. Maybe I could just cook the chicken in the crock pot and add the honey and hot sauce at the end.

      I did this last weekend.. Cooked the chicken in the crockpot then transferred to the stove and added the honey and sauce. Turned out amaaaazing

    Hey Jenny, First of all I want to let you know that visiting the Picky Palate website is part of my weekly routine! I remember years ago seeing you on TV for cooking and then two years back for Thanksgiving was looking for a dessert recipe and stumbled on to your page from a link The Pioneer Woman has and have been cooking with your recipes since! I would love if you would do a chit chat about your daily eating routine (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), your go to meals, snacks, working out, equipment and tips!

  4. Oh, this is just what I need for my lunch. As an office staff, I have to prepare my own lunch box in early morning along with my breakfast. I often do it quick and simple. Now with your tips, I will have a very delicious and healthy lunch, also more time for breakfast. Thank you!
