I have tried meal prepping so many times but I always end up wanting to cook dinner. I look forward to that time in the kitchen listening to music, chopping, stirring, sautéing… it is my time and I love it.
But as nap times getting shorter and the baby gates falls to the onslaught of toddler hordes, I don’t have as much time to put into dinner. So, lately, I have been prepping some of the ingredients instead of whole meals.
One of my favorite things to keep in the refrigerator is roasted chicken breasts. I make a few on Sunday and am ready to toss together salads, pasta, or tacos in less than thirty minutes.
A favorite of ours is this salad; crisp romaine lettuce, roasted chicken, shaved manchego cheese, fresh baked croutons, and creamy balsamic dressing. Simple delicious perfection.
