Pizza Chicken Meal Prep Recipe
You may not be able to eat pizza every day, but you definitely can enjoy this Pizza Chicken Meal Prep!
Pizza Chicken. You’re looking at us funny, we can feel it. Hear us out, because this meal prep recipe just might blow your mind (and your tastebuds!). Let’s be honest, we would all eat pizza every day if we could, right? But all those calories and empty carbs are unfortunately not a great complement to your killer gym workout. But we’re big believers in everything in moderation here at MPOF! So what’s a pie lover to do? Pizza Chicken, of course! This meal prep recipe is all of the things you love about pizza: rich tomato sauce, perfect Italian spices, delicious runny cheese, even mini pepperoni. But instead of carb-heavy crust, we’re putting all of that goodness on top of a perfectly cooked chicken breast!
There used to be nothing better than a tender, juicy chicken breast straight out of the oven. But then we made that tender, juicy chicken breast into Chicken Pizza- and, um, that is definitely better. Because this homemade Pizza Chicken recipe comes together in no time at all (only 26 minutes from start to finish), it’s quick enough for a weeknight family dinner and has definitely become part of the regular rotation in the MPOF houses. Plus it’s kid approved, and gluten-free to boot! Serve yours on top of a fresh mixed green salad or with a side of steamed veggies for a nutritionally complete meal. We love ours with broccoli (shown below)- the crunch of a hearty vegetable is the perfect complement to rich, gooey Pizza Chicken.
So when your craving for pizza kicks in (sometimes daily for us!) you can satisfy it with this protein-packed, low carb meal prep recipe that can be made for less than $4! Check out the video below to see for yourself how easy it is to put this Pizza Chicken together.
