Anyone who’s looked at weight loss or saving money in the kitchen has definitely stumbled on the phenomenon known as meal prep. It just makes a lot of sense to portion out meals that you know you want to eat. You know, something that will keep you from dashing off to get some fast food when you’re exhausted, running late, or starving.
This beautiful ghost chicken is exactly the thing that every chili head should have in their repertoire. It’s super simple and way tastier than you could ever expect.
Even better, it pairs with everything… everything. Add some greens and slice these breasts to make a salad. Add some rice and steamed veg for a decadent dinner. Or, chop it and add your favorite taco toppings and a couple of tortillas and voila!
Seriously, it’s like a miracle chicken, with the heat to make you crave it day in and day out. You’ll be sold after just one bite. And then, you’ll make it every week for the rest of the year. Now, that’s the sort of meal prep dish you want, isn’t it
