This was meant to be added to my Meal Prep Monday series, however I think I have proven Meal Prep Mondays will be a struggle for me (I’m 0/2). This will, without doubt, be the most simple recipe I have ever, will ever post. That’s because it honestly does not have a ton of flavor and very few components. It’s not supposed to! This is our go to way to meal prep our chicken for the week; Our “anything” chicken that goes with literally anything.
A few posts back, I had mentioned that I would share what we do on nights preparing a dinner isn’t feasible or the nights I just don’t freaking feel like cooking. Now believe me, we definitely aren’t afraid to order a pizza or some lo-mein. However, for the love of pant buttons, we can’t do that all the time. That’s where “anything” chicken steps up to the plate.
I know sharing this easy recipe may be silly, but it has truly been a lifesaver in our household. By spending 3 minutes putting a few ingredients in a crockpot, I will have the main ingredient for tons of different lunch and dinners throughout the week. To name a few go-to’s that I’ll be sharing: Almond & Grape Chicken Salad (SO good for lunch or dinner), Chicken Tacos, Chicken & Dumpling Soup, Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash and for the reaaaaaallly lazy days? Just throw that shit on some lettuce and you have a salad.
Breakout that crockpot from the top shelf in your pantry. Hunny, that baby is about to give you some meals.
What You’ll Need:
- 8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
- 2 cloves of garlic
- fresh parsley, chopped
- salt & pepper
- smoke paprika
Literally, just dump it all into a crockpot and cook it on high for 6 hours. The chicken should literally fall apart, essentially being shredded or “pulled” chicken. You want it to be “plain”, this way you can use it for any recipe you want without compromising flavors. Stay tuned for quick & easy recipes showcasing this recipe.
