One Pan Meal Prep


 I will spend all day making cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and pastries, but when it comes to “healthy” cooking, I am spectacularly lazy. 

This is why the One Pan Meal Prep is not only my go-to, but pretty much the only way I’ll prep healthy meals for the week. 
In this prep I did ginger sesame chicken, broccoli, sweet potatoes, and carrots. 

We pretty much always have chicken breasts (thanks babe 😘), so all I had to buy was the marinade and veggies. It only cost me $5.00. You read that right, FIVR DOLLARS for four meals! 

I took two chicken breasts and cut them into 2″ pieces and marinated them the day before.


When you get ready to cook everything, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with foil. Put your marinated chicken in the center of your cookie sheet. Then you basically just chop all your veggies up and put them on either sides of your chicken, give a quick spray with cooking oil, and toss on some sea salt.
 I like to do at least 3-4 different veggies so I’m not eating the same exact thing every. single. night. Dieting is hard enough without it being BORING. 

After you have everything laid out, bake it for about 20 minutes, or until your chicken is done. Most of your veggies should be cooked, but sometimes I have to put the sweet potatoes back in for another 10 minutes if I don’t cut them small enough. 

Once everything is done cooking, just slice your chicken and pack it all up! I normally do 6-7 oz of chicken per meal with 1(ish) cup of a veggie. I’m not really strict on measuring the veggies. 💁🏻


All together this probably takes about 5 minutes of prep, 20 minutes to cook, and 5 minutes to package! 

The only thing easier than this is maybe a crock pot meal. Which reminds me, I really need to start using my crock pot again! 🤔
