Meal Prep Time

Yesterday I decided to prep my lunch for the rest of the week.

When I was looking through Pinterest I found this recipe for Grilled Chicken and Veggie bowl.  Most of the ingredients I already had at home so I thought why not try it.

First I cut the three large boneless, skinless, chicken breast into smaller pieces. After that I stabbed them with a knife and got the mallet and tenderized the chicken breast.

After that I rubbed on the mixed spices of garlic salt, black pepper, salt, paprika, and grounded cumin.

I marinated the chicken overnight, I will admit that I made a mistake and didn’t read the instructions carefully. I should’ve added a lime to the marinate. Since I missed this step I just added after I cooked it.

The next morning I used my George Foreman grill to cook my chicken. I cook them for about 5 to 7 minutes depending on how thick the chicken piece was.

After that I served my bf and my lunch. The rest I put in the freezer for the rest of the week. To my surprise it was pretty tasty! Even my boyfriend loved his lunch. So the rest of the week is going to be very tasty. As for the side I just boiled some broccoli and threw it in.


Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!

Budget Friendly Meal

Lately I have been obsessed with trying out recipes. This week I decided to try out Trader Joe’s Sriracha BBQ Chicken Skewers.

One thing that I liked about this recipe is that it is easy on the wallet.

The ingredients you need are;

  1. Boneless Chicken Breasts
  2. TJ’s Organic Sriracha & Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce
  3. Pollo Seasoning
  4. Bamboo Skewers (recommended to soak in water)

In the end I customized the way I made the dish. What I did was get the chicken breast and chop them into cubes. Before I put them into a bowl I poke them with a knife so the TJ sauce can go into the chicken. So after putting the cubes of chicken into the bowl I pour in the TJ sauce. I just wanted the chicken lightly covered in the sauce.

After 15 minutes of setting, I get the cubes of chicken and start putting them into the screwer. To add more flavor I sprinkled the Pollo seasoning all around the meat.

Once the meat is cooked throughly you can enjoy dipping it into Sriracha for an extra kick.

I hope you enjoyed my foodie quest this week.

Let me know if you try it out yourself.
