How do I meal prep these teriyaki chicken stir-fry lunch boxes?
Being prepared or making meal prep lunch boxes is really easy. You basically triple or quadruple one serving size and get everything ready – the protein, veggies and carbs which in this case is saucy teriyaki chicken that has a finger licking sauce, roasted vegetables simply tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper and boiled brown rice. You can swap the rice for quinoa, noodles or anything else you like.
- I put the rice on to boil first while I prep my veggies because the rice takes the longest to cook
- Then I toss the veggies with olive oil, salt and pepper and put them into roast
- And finally I make the chicken because this chicken recipe really takes only 20-25 minutes if you’ve marinated it before hand
What containers can I use for meal prep lunch boxes?
This is super important because you need containers that are refrigerator/freezer safe and microwaveable. Because you will probably carry them to work and just pop them out of the fridge and into the microwave. I love these glass containers with lids. But if you don’t like glass or want something lighter, these reusable containers are pretty great as well.
Have I got you excited about meal prep? Because there is more where that came from! I wish I could give you some kind of money back guarantee because that’s how good these teriyaki chicken stir fry meal prep lunch boxes are.
