Honey Sesame Chicken Bowls


These Honey Sesame Chicken Bowls from Sweet Peas and Saffron can be used for meal prep lunches or a simple dinner for four. I love the balance of carbs, fats and protein to keep you satisfied, you’ll love how simple it is to make. 

To make, you’ll prep the rice, veggies and chicken separately and divide between bowls or containers after cooking. Rice is cooked according to package instructions, and veggies are sautéed in a pan with salt and pepper. Chicken is prepared by sautéing in the same pan that was used for the veggies until cooked. The final step is to quickly reduce the sauce by simmering ingredients in the same pan that veggies and chicken were cooked in. Divide the sauce between bowls and enjoy!
