Meal Prep 30 Minute or Less – Ginger Cashew Chili Chicken
Do you ever get bored of the basic meal prep every week and as a result end up running to the closest fast food chain for that tasty salt and sugar infused meal?
Look no further, we at LINK have compiled a list of top 30-minutes or less recipes to help you stay accountable to your health goals while enjoying the taste and uniqueness of these recipes.
Here’s how to make it
- 8 oz chicken breast, chopped
- 1 C water
- 2 Tbsp Cashew Butter
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2 inch knobs of fresh ginger
- 1/2 tsp sesame oil or avocado oil
- 1 diced dried red chili pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- dash of pepper and turmeric
- cashews for topping
- cilantro for topping
First, begin by chopping chicken into bite-size pieces, chopping cilantro, chopping the chilli peeling, then grating your ginger with a grater or food processor, and mincing garlic.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high and toss in garlic. Next, add chicken and stir. Add salt, turmeric, pepper, fresh ginger, and stir. All sides of the chicken should be slightly cooked at this point with no visible raw meat.
Add the chilis and stir. Finally, add the water and cashew butter, stir and turn down to a low simmer. Simmer, stirring every few minutes for about 20 minutes, making sure nothing is sticking, and that the sauce is thickening. If the sauce hasn’t thickened, you can turn up the heat to help thicken towards the end of cooking. Make sure the chicken is finished, then serve atop cauliflower rice, or desired vegetable, sprinkling with cashews and cilantro.
