Spicy Chicken Meal-Prep Bowls Primavera Kitchen Recipe

I have to confess that I’m really enjoying making meal-preps for the week on Sundays. My life in the kitchen during the week has been so much easier. I don’t need to think about what to pack for my husband’s lunch or what to make for lunch for my son and myself. Also, when you have healthy meals on hand, you won’t end up buying processed foods loaded with salt, preservatives, and artificial flavors. Stay ahead of the game. It’s amazing to stay on track.

Some people say they don’t like to spend their free time on Sundays in the kitchen cooking, but actually, you don’t need to spend more than one hour making it. I think it’s well worth the extra effort to meal-prep on the weekend and have your week’s meals planned. This way your week will be less busy and you’ll have more time to enjoy your family, eat healthier, and save some money. It’s a win-win situation all around.

Spicy Chicken Meal-Prep Bowls Primavera Kitchen Recipe

These Spicy Chicken Meal-Prep Bowls are great to make if you love a very seasoned and wow-tasting chicken recipe because they’re loaded with spices such as coriander, paprika, powder onion and crushed red pepper. The veggies are drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. You roasted the chicken for 15 minutes, then add the veggies and roast everything together for 10 minutes more. If you like tender roasted veggies, this is the way to go.

While the veggies are in the oven you can prepare the “mashed” cauliflower, which is very easy to make. You’re going to steam it until the cauliflower is fork tender and when the cauliflower cools down you’re going to slowly start to mash the cauliflower with an immersion blender. When the cauliflower is completely smooth, you’re going to add butter, cream cheese, garlic clove, Parmesan, salt, and ground black pepper and stir well to combine. So easy and I promise you it tastes really good.

Here’s what I love about this Spicy Chicken Meal-Prep Bowls recipe:

  • It is easy and quick.
  • It is versatile. You can use any type of veggies here to go along the chicken.
  • It is paleo, whole30, low-carb, keto and gluten-free.
  • It’s flavorful with lots of spices.

I’m sure this Spicy Chicken Meal-Prep Bowls recipe will make your day and week run a lot smoother. Please give it a try!

Ingredients:

For the chicken and veggies

  • 1 + 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon powder onion
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:

For the chicken and veggies

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, place chicken with 1 tablespoon olive oil, thyme, paprika, onion powder, coriander, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper. Toss everything together and set aside.
