Wether we are on a plan to lose fat, to lose weight, or simply want to maintain a healthy weight, chicken seems to be the perfect option. Not only because it is affordable, almost everybody likes it. It also is super easy to make; therefore is very versatile; and is a wonderful source of lean protein (Chicken breast that is). It could be eaten cold, hot, room temperature, on the go, or served on a lunch or dinner. I like it even for breakfast!. It can be tossed over a salad, be the main character of a meal and is kid friendly. Those are only a few reasons why chicken seems to be our perfect ally when we are on a mission!
We have all heard that preparation is the key for any plan. It is not a secret that when we have great options available, it is easier to stick to a plan; and pass on the options that will keep us away to reach our goal, whatever that goal is. However, it is not a secret either that when we ALWAYS eat the same (wether that “always” is a week, 2 weeks or 12) the chances that we will “fall off the wagon” and assault the guy that is having a slice of pizza next to us, are greater. That is why I decided to make 6 chicken breasts, in 4 different ways, in 30 minutes. The result? 12 meals! It is important to clarify that in my particular case, and based on my caloric needs, weight, and goals, I consume the equivalent of 1/2 chicken breast per meal, as my source of lean protein.
