Meal Prep – Tender and Juicy Pulled Chicken!
This really couldn’t be simpler to make and will feed you nicely for 6 meals!
You will need:
- 1kg skinless boneless chicken thighs
- 2 onions
- 6 cloves of garlic (or more if you love it like I do!)
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
- white wine vinegar
- Jasmine rice (however much you want to have with it really!)
The process looks something like this:
The key is to cook the chicken on a really slow heat over a couple of hours.
This gives the white wine vinegar, onions and garlic, time to break down the proteins in the chicken and leave it nice and tender for pulling.
I prefer skinless boneless chicken thighs as they’re a bit juicier and a bit tastier than chicken breast – but go with whatever you feel, just remember to adjust your macros accordingly!
You can do essentially the same recipe with pork – just use apple cider vinegar instead.
Add any seasonings you like! I Love Frank’s Red Hot with this.
Want macros? We got macros! A two hundred gram serving off the pulled chicken works out close to this:
One cup of cooked white rice (or roughly 210g) comes to 242 calories and 53.2g carbs.
That brings us to a grand total of 467 calories.
So this is an ideal meal for any time of day, but especially a couple of hours before, or just after a workout!
Let me know how you get on with this, and feel free to change up the veg to anything you like! Cabbage, broccoli, carrots, green beans, it’s all good!
