High Protein Meal Prep Bowl with Grilled Chicken
- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 cups water
- 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 grilled chicken breasts, diced
- 2 cups broccoli florets, chopped
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- Juice of 1 lime
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
In a saucepan, combine the quinoa and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed.
While the quinoa is cooking, grill the chicken breasts until fully cooked. Once the chicken is cooked, dice it into small pieces.
Spread the broccoli and red bell pepper on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred.
In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, black beans, diced grilled chicken breast, roasted broccoli and red bell pepper, chopped cilantro, and diced avocado.
Squeeze the lime juice over the top and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Divide the mixture evenly into four meal prep containers and store in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.
Enjoy your high protein meal prep bowl with grilled chicken for a delicious and healthy lunch option throughout the week!
