Meal Prep – Healthy Chicken and Veggies

 

This sheet pan roasted chicken and rainbow veggies is a great dish to make if your just starting to meal prep or if you just want easy toss in the oven kind of dinner.

The chicken and veggies are loaded with spices and drizzled with olive oil, then roasted in the oven for 20 minutes or until charred and tender. Since the chicken breasts are cut into small cubes, they cook at the same rate as the veggies making it that much easier to cook everything at the same rate.

Divide the chicken and veggies into individual meal prep containers on a handful of brown rice or quinoa or your favorite type of rice and enjoys a weeks worth of meals all done in under 30 minutes!
