Chili Lime Chicken Meal Prep
Our Chili Lime Chicken Meal Prep has 3 days of preparation before being packaged for delivery. The design of this dish provides a very nice contrast and provides all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs. Although chili is in the title it is not a super spicy dish. Our clients enjoy this dish because of well the flavors work together.
In this article, we will be goin over each day of preparation to give you a better understanding of how we prepare our dishes.
To begin our week we will prepare our chili lime marinade, roast our cherry tomatoes, cook our yams, make our avocado goddess sauce, and sear our chicken.
Our chili lime marinade contains cumin, coriander, paprika, light chili powder, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. We take blend these ingredients them into a smooth marinade that will flavor the chicken. We store the marinade with the chicken until we are ready to sear it later in the day.
Next, we roast our cherry tomatoes. By roasting our cherry tomatoes it allows them to provide more flavor to the dish and brings out a brighter color. In addition to the flavor and appearance benefits, roasting cherry tomatoes also brings out more of the nutrients and vitamins the tomato provides. While we roast the tomatoes, we also cook our yams. First, the chefs dice the yams. Next they cook them in the oven in order to soften them before they are cooked with all the vegetables.
Third, we will be making our avocado goddess sauce from scratch. The avocado goddess sauce contains avocado, cilantro, basil, jalapeno, lemon juice, and cumin. These ingredients are bleneded into a nice sauce that will pair nicely with the chili lime chicken meal prep.
Finally, to end the day, we sear the marinated chicken breast. Since the chicken has been sitting in the marinade, we sear it to lock in the flavor and provide a nice texture to the chicken. After a quick sear on the grill it is then put into the refrigerators where it will be stored until we finish its cooking.
For our Wednesday preparation of the Chili Lime Chicken meal prep we will be sauteeing our vegetables and cooking our chicken.
This dish will have onions, peppers, broccolini, zucchini, corn, and cherry tomatoes. We start the sauteeing process by cooking the onions and peppers on the grill for 20-30 seconds. Next, we add the broccolini and zucchini for 20-30 seconds. We then finish it off by adding the corn and cherry tomatoes. This blend of vegetables provides the maximum amount of vitamins and nutrients for the meal.
Next, we will be cooking our chicken and cutting it. First, the chicken is cooked in our rational ovens until it reaches a safe internal temperature. Once the chicken is cooked, it is then sliced into 4 pieces until it is ready to be packaged.
For our final day of preparing the chili lime chicken, we will plate and package the meal preps. During this process we take care to make sure each meal is packed to the correct size. Since our clients all have different goals, it is important they get meals that will aid them in their journey. For this reason, our team makes sure that each container has the right amount of macros. The plating begins with our avocado goddess sauce, then we add the yams, and finally we finish with the vegetable mix and sliced chicken breast.
Once the meals have been packed to the appropriate size we’ll seal the meals using our advanced packing technology equipment, which allows us to decrease the Oxygen inside the container down to 1% and slow down the oxidation process drastically. We strongly recommend the meals be consumed within 5-7 days of delivery, but because of the technology’s ability to reduce the oxygen in the container, the meals can last up to 12 days.
