GREEK STYLE CHICKEN LEAN PREP
Looking for a new recipe to spice up your meal prep routine? Then this Greek style chicken tray bake is perfect for you! This recipe is super easy to make – with simple ingredients and a prep time of only 10 minutes, it’s perfect for a meal prep day, or even as a quick meal you can throw together for the family after a busy day at work.
Not only is this meal simple and quick to make, but it is also lean-approved and packed with healthy lean-gredients! Red bell peppers are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C which help with the absorption of iron into the body. Yellow bell peppers also contain antioxidants and are high in potassium.
The addition of black olives and feta cheese will add a salty bite of flavour and a little twist for your tastebuds! As a lean meat, chicken breast can be a little dry on its own, so the addition of cherry tomatoes will add extra flavour and can balance out the dish. For all of the dairy free Squadies out there, by taking out the feta cheese, this dish suits all your needs!!
Here’s how to make it:
