Two weeks ago, I mentioned in a post that every week at the grocery store, I buy a 5 pound package of boneless skinless chicken breasts. I bake the whole package at one time, cut it up and use it all week for lunches and dinners. It is a huge time saver for me and it also keeps me on track for eating healthy. You see, if I know I have some yummy chicken already cooked in fridge at home, it is easier to pass by those lousy fast food places!
Apparently, you loved this idea as well because I received so many emails asking how I bake the breasts and then how to use it to make quick meals. In response, I present to you my Chicken 5 – 5: how to turn 5 pounds of chicken into 5 quick and easy dinner recipes for a whole week of menus!
I use my juicy and flavorful cooked chicken breasts in so many different ways, often depending on my mood, but I thought it was important that I share with you my 5 favorite recipes to use my pre-baked protein in! My recipe for the actual baked breasts is at the bottom of this post, so just keep scrolling, just keep scrolling, just keep scrolling…..
