Chicken Thigh Meal Prep

Ingredients

Chicken

4 Chicken Thighs

1/2 Tablespoon Seasoning Salt (I use Lawry’s), or other seasoning mix

Rice

1 Cup Brown Rice

1 Cup Water

Veggies

8 oz Frozen Vegetables

Instructions

Chicken

Preheat oven to 425F.

Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel. Skin side up, drizzle with oil, then sprinkle the seasoning on.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until chicken is at least 165F at the thickest part (I use an inexpensive digital thermometer to check.) Move ahead to making the rice while the chicken cooks.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool. While it is cooling, prepare 4 meal prep containers.

Once cool, add one chicken thigh to each of the meal prep containers.

Rice

Add rice and water to an Instant Pot. Place lid on and turn vent to “sealing”. Cook for 15 minutes on high pressure.

Quick release the pressure, remove lid, and use a fork to fluff the rice.

Allow to cool completely, then divide the rice between the four meal prep containers.

Veggies

Open your bag of frozen veggies and divide approximately 8 oz between your 4 meal prep containers.

Seal the meal prep containers with their lids, then store in the refrigerator up to 4 days.
