I have this internal dilemma that you might be able to relate to. I don’t love spending a ton of time on meal prep for the week. But when I do? I’m SO happy to have easy, nutritious meals that just need to be re-heated for a quick lunch.
Because of this love/hate relationship with meal prepping, I’m always looking for ways to simplify meal prep and come up with easy meals that will feed me throughout the week, WITHOUT spending a day in the kitchen to make it happen. I just can’t do it!
So what’s my solution? To cook all of the meal components on one pan! Or a few pans, depending on how much food you are prepping! (I talk about this in my Chicken Thigh Sheet Pan Dinner because it’s a sheet pan dinner…but in order to feed my whole family, I need to use a few sheet pans. HA!) But the point is, is that whenever I can cook things together in one pan, I do! This helps take some of the hands-on time away from me, which helps speed up the whole meal prep process.
I’m definitely working on some more meal prep recipes that incorporate this easy method. My Chicken Meal Prep with Quinoa and Broccoli uses this technique partially, but the quinoa does need to be cooked separately from the chicken and broccoli. If you have any requests, be sure to let me know!
One Pan Sausage and Veggies:
How do you cook sausage and vegetables?
One of the great things about chicken sausage is that it cooks up really quickly (these are some of my favorite cooking words!) and that there are so many flavors, that you can really change up the varieties so that you never get bored.
What meal prep containers do you use?
I have both the plastic and glass versions of snapware* and love them both! You don’t need anything special, just have enough pieces so that you can portion out enough for four meals so that you have lunches that are ready-to-go.
