Top with green onions, sesame seeds or any other toppings.

Meal Prep And Storage

If you want to meal prep for part of your week this recipe is a great one to do. Just cook up your chicken and veggies and place in single serve containers. Add in your rice, quinoa, cauli-rice or whatever you want.

Then reheat and enjoy.

If you have leftovers after a meal just store in the refrigerator for up to three days. In terms of freezing you can freeze leftovers, but the vegetables will become a lot softer once they thaw from being frozen.

You can freeze for up to three months in the proper freezer-friendly containers.
