Since most of us aren’t home for lunch, eating right can be a bit tricky especially when you’re on the go. Theresa suggests cooking up a big batch of chicken breasts and freezing them for an easy, healthy and delicious lunch option. You can bake plain breasts and add them to salads or use the chicken as a wrap of sorts and stuff them with veggies for a complete meal.
If you take a bit of time on Sunday you can easily prepare a big batch of these delicious chicken roll-ups to have for lunch all week.
Inside some flattened chicken breasts roll up some snow peas, roasted red peppers and hoisin. Top with some soy sauce and sesame seeds and bake at 350ºF for 30-35 minutes until no pink is left inside and the juices run clear.
Flattening chicken breasts is easy too. Simply place a chicken breast between two pieces of cling wrap and using a mallet, a rolling pin, a wine bottle (or even your fists!) pound the chicken until it’s about a 1/4” thick. You can use them for the roll ups or dredge in a little egg and flour and bread crumbs and pan fry a few minutes a side. Add to salads and sandwiches for some extra crunch.
And there you have it. Easy, peasy, good for you lunches.
