Thai peanut chicken Rainbow Bowls
These peanuts chicken meal prep bowls come together with sautéed chicken, a rainbow of veggies and a delicious peanut sauce for a healthy make ahead, low carb lunch idea?
Honestly, I can say they are delicious, healthy and ready in wait for it.. under 30 minutes.
I love healthy lunch ideas especially when it involves anything peanut butter. Now, there are something’s you should note about these peanut chicken meal prep bowls.
The first of which being that you may want to bag the lettuce separately because if it sits in the bowls for too many days it goes soggy. I also pack the peanut dressing separately to ensure that
all the veggies stay fresh and then I drizzle the peanut sauce overtop ready to serve.
They even taste yummy when eaten cold or preheat the chicken separately if you’d like although there’s enough flavour these that I don’t think you need the chicken heated up!
