Happy November, Empresses! Halloween came and went by so fast, leaving my head spinning that Thanksgiving menu prepping and Christmas shopping are now underway! I love this time of year, but as I get older the faster it zooms by. Time pleeeeease SLOW. DOWN. During this crazy busy season, I am always in need of something in the fridge to grab on the go; a meal that is healthy, yet satisfying and easy to make. If you love spicy, quick, and full of flavor than this Sriracha Chicken is a definite for your weeknight rotation or weekly meal prep! I love healthy meal prepping for the week. A process to ensure that I always have a high in protein, low in fat meal for lunch or dinner that’s quick and easy to immediately grab. Otherwise, you will find me standing in front of the refrigerator or pantry staring mindlessly contemplating what I should eat. That scenario usually ends up ruining my workout and all the hard work I did. This Sriracha chicken is healthy and a great grab and go, because all you have to do is stick it in the microwave for less than a minute and lunch or dinner is served! There is no thinking involved, and that’s what keeps us on par with our fitness goals. It’s all about planning and discipline and keeping to a schedule. It’s only five ingredients and super simple, which keeps both calories and cost down to a minimum! Even if you aren’t a meal prepping kind of person, this crockpot Sriracha chicken is perfection for your weekly rotation. Just throw a few chicken breasts into the crockpot with some Sriracha sauce and a few other ingredients and you have a super simple weeknight meal that is sure to please!
