Meal Prep Monday – Seasoned Baked Chicken

Seasoned Baked Chicken - My Name is April

Welcome to a new segment of My Name is April! I’ve been dishing out sweet treat recipes to you for a while now and have studiously ignored the savoury aspect of my life that is my weekly meal prep. But more and more people have been asking me what meals I cook that are good for me, and especially in bulk, without it taking up an entire day of my weekend. Over the years the boy and I have developed a few awesome life hacks for easy meal prepping that anyone can do in a few hours!

One of our favourites is our seasoned baked chicken. The easiest of all meal preps, you can cook over 1kg of chicken in the space of 40 minutes!

How amazing does that look! The meat stays incredibly tender and melt-in-your-mouth when you bake this way. We enjoy eating ours with a large variety of vegetables which we steam whilst the chicken is baking.
