Ground Chicken And Vegetables
This ground chicken and vegetables recipe packs a lot of flavor, protein, and veggies into one tasty and healthy dish! You can easily work it into your weekly meal prep rotation and it’s even easier if you have an instant pot to cut down the cook time. There’s no need to bake chicken and scrub sheet pans and can even be used as a recipe for leftover roasted chicken. It has the best of stir fry—easy, delicious, and very versatile. Try it as a taco stuffing for Cinco de Mayo too!
Instead of using a few tablespoons of olive oil, I decided to spray the pan with coconut oil to keep the calories lower and on track for my fitness and weight loss goals. Spicing it with gyro seasoning brings a bright kick of flavor that brings to mind mediterranean paradise and smokey meats. This freezes well so you can portion it out to individual meals to take for lunch at work or an easy dinner to prepare. Onedish meals are always welcome because they cut down on prep time.
Even better is you can cut and dice the vegetables and just keep those in the freezer for when the craving for this dish hits you. Freezing the ingredients separately allows you to use them for other easy recipes that you can find on my website as well, so feel free to search by ingredient and get your creative culinary juices flowing!
