Meal Prep: Chicken 3 Ways

Which came first; the chicken or the egg? In this post, the chicken. The big, beautiful, whole roaster chicken to be exact. When preparing for a cleanse, I like to make a whole chicken (or two to have a lot of leftovers). Depending how many people you’re feeding, a whole roaster can get you 3 meals.

The first meal is obviously, you guessed it, roasted chicken. This is easily one of my favorite simple meals. Paired with sautéed spinach and cauliflower rice. My mom (hi mom) is the “oven stuffer roaster queen”. She gets her plastic gloves out and pulls the neck and bag out of the inside of that chicken and tosses it in a tin. Bake for the first 20 minutes on 400 (to kill all the bacteria) and then lower the temp to 350 for about another hour 40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165. We’re old school still and I haven’t even opened my pressure cooker I’ve had for a year.

The second meal, and a fan favorite, is buffalo chicken dip. My husband loves it and nobody even knows it’s “paleo”. Serve with veggies or stuff in lettuce wraps or on a salad. (celery and cucumber are my favorite with this) or seite Foods grain free tortilla chips post cleanse. *this recipe can also be served cold for a quick meal. Definitely a crowd pleaser.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

1-1.5lb shredded chicken breast

1/2c Franks hot sauce

1/2c Sir Kensington mayonnaise

1tbsp primal kitchen ranch dressing

Mix all ingredients together and bake @350 for 25 minutes.

The third meal is curried chicken salad. You can always leave the curry powder out, but it gives it that special something.

Curried Chicken Salad

1-1.5lb shredded chicken breast

1/2c Sir Kensington mayonnaise

1tbsp curry powder (more depending on taste)

Chopped veggies (I’ve added cucumber, peppers, celery, and carrots depending what I had) just make sure to chop small

1/4c chopped pecans or sunflower seeds (or both!)

Mix all ingredients and serve on top of romaine or in a lettuce wrap.
