Plan Ahead Chicken

You fail to plan, you plan to fail! It is no different when it comes to your healthchicken lemon and healthier meals.

One of the simplest tips that my clients find most helpful when planning healthy meals is to marinate a whole package of chicken breast with a simple marinade that can then be modified in the last minute and flavored to match any cuisine your heart desires.

The recipe is simple. All you need to do is marinate the chicken breast with a good amount of olive oil, lemon juice, whatever herbs you wish to use, salt and pepper to taste, and some garlic. Use a bay leaf if you have it handy.

Mix it all up, put it in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate. When ready, take as many chicken breasts as you need for the meal and cook it four to five minutes per side on the grill or in a skillet as you wish, and it’s ready to be served with your favorite vegetables or salad.

Do you feel like you get bored easily eating the same thing over and over? No problem. Once you have picked out the breasts  you need for the meal, season them with whatever spices, herbs, rubs that you want and you can turn it into Mexican, Italian, Asian, French or any other cuisine in just a few minutes.

Short on time? Slice or dice the chicken into smaller pieces before cooking and dinner is ready in minutes!
