"Fried" Chicken

"Fried" Chicken

I absolutely love using my Air Fryer. It really, truly makes things tastes fried, even though there is no oil in the fryer. Craziness. I have always liked fried chicken… I used to love this one fried chicken Kid Cuisine freezer dinner as a kid. My parents would get us those whenever we had a babysitter. This is a lot healthier though, haha. But it tastes JUST as good, if not better. The Old Bay makes this chicken super tasty. And then your partner can make “old bae” jokes. So fun.

Tarragon Egg Salad

Tarragon Egg Salad

I love tarragon. I had it in a Blue Apron recipe one time and fell in love. I had a bunch of eggs to use from my egg CSA through Ley Creek Farm, so I figured I would meal prep a batch of fancy egg salad for my lunches. Instead of having it on a sandwich or wrap (which you totally could do), I had mine just over plain arugula, with some multigrain crackers for dipping. Egg salad is awesome and versatile - you can really do a lot with it!

Chicken Patty

Chicken Patty

Sometimes, you just want something comforting like a chicken patty. But often, the ones you buy at the store are so processed and laden with additional ingredients. They are super simple to make at home - you can make a huge batch of these and freeze them. You can eat them on a whole wheat bun, or a lettuce wrap, or even just plain! I really like these chicken patties for easy meal prep. Try subbing out almond flour for the all-purpose flour to make these keto!

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is a great clean eating recipe to meal prep for lunches! I make a big batch of it and my husband and I will eat it for lunch (or snacks!) all week long. I love the surprise sweetness of the dried cranberries in it. I also love the versatility of chicken salad - you can put it in a lettuce wrap, make it into a sandwich, top a salad with a scoop, or even just eat it straight out of the bowl. This is my third (I think?) recipe where I’ve made shredded chicken using my Instant Pot and, if you couldn’t tell, I’m in love. It’s an effortless way to make moist, delicious shredded chicken! (Sorry if you hate the word “moist”!)

Spicy Turkey & Sweet Potato

Spicy Turkey & Sweet Potato

This delightful recipe was born out of necessity and from what ingredients I had laying around my kitchen and I think it’s a hit. It’s a grain-free, high protein dish that I’ve been using as a snack between meals, but you could easily turn into a full entree. It definitely makes for an awesome meal prep! I even froze a couple of extra ones for next week. And I bet you could all get much more creative with the spices, too! I like heat, but I also love the simplicity of this recipe. That being said, please leave a comment if you switched the spices up! I’d love to try a new combo :)
