Healthier Sweet & Spicy Chicken
These crispy-saucy, lil’ bite sized, sweet & spicy chicken morsels are just as tasty as the restaurant versions we all love.
If you’re using fresh pressed garlic and grated fresh ginger root, (not powder) this will give your dish an amazing, tangy-fresh melt-in-your-mouth flavor that definitely beats out the restaurants!
You can add more or less red pepper flakes and/or hot sauce, depending on your own heat preference.
I highly recommend adding this to your regular meal prep ideas!
Simply add 4-5 ounces of this chicken into your glass meal prep containers, alongside 1/2 cup brown rice, and 1 cup of steamed broccoli.
Seal up those containers, then place them in the fridge for future meals.
Lasts up to 4 days.
