Easiest Recipe When You’re Hangry And Don’t Like To Cook

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing a 6 minute muscle building chicken and rice recipe for busy men who don’t like to cook.

Before I show you how quick and easy this step-by-step recipe is, let’s talk about pre-cooked ingredients.

For a lot of people, pre-cooked food is important, because let’s be real.

Whether you’re busy:

  • Taking the kids to football practice
  • Fitting in your workouts
  • Or spending time with friends

One thing is for sure.

You are busy, I’m busy, we are all busy.

That’s just the world we live in today, so we must accept it.

Eating Fast Food Is Not Your Only Option When You Are Busy

Does a busy lifestyle give you a free pass to a lifetime of fast food restaurant drive thru breakfasts, lunches, and dinners?

Of course not.

If you’re reading this, you are a member of the Live Lean Nation, and we only rock with fast food during our well earned cheat meals.

During the rest of the week, we choose to make healthier food decisions, that are better for our long-term health.

One of the most important ways to improve our health is via the foods we feed our body.

However, this doesn’t mean we need to be perfect 100% of the time.

It just means we’re focused on making daily progress towards achieving our health and wellness goals.

Best Ways To Add More Protein To Your Diet

Best High Protein Foods For Weight Loss And Muscle Building

On our Live Lean TV YouTube channel, I’m always sharing creative ways to add more protein to your diet.

This usually includes:

  1. Purchasing and cooking your meats in bulk:
  2. Purchase pre-cooked meats:
    • It’s great to see more healthy and convenient pre-packaged high protein foods becoming available.
    • For example, I found the below Grilled & Ready Fully Cooked Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast from Tyson, at my local grocery store.
    • This is perfect for people who don’t like to cook, don’t know how to cook, or simply don’t have the time to cook.

For example, today I didn’t have time to cook.

I had a crazy day of filming and I was feeling “hangry”.

When I got home, I almost lost it when my fridge was void of all things protein related.

My first instinct was to call it my weekly cheat meal, and head out for something quick and dirty.

Then as I was driving, it all of a sudden hit me.

I just remembered Jessica and I had a night out planned for Saturday.

This quickly ended my plans for a quick cheat meal.

Do This When You Need A Quick And Healthy Meal

Therefore, I knew I still needed something quick and healthy.

As I drove past all the fast food restaurants, I decided to stop at my local grocery store to see if I could find a quick and ready to eat protein source.

I quickly went to the refrigerator aisle to see what pre-cooked protein sources I could find.

Luckily I found this Grilled & Ready Fully Cooked Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast from Tyson.

As my stomach yelled at my again, I quickly put the pre-cooked chicken in my shopping cart, then threw in a bag of pre-made salad and a frozen bag of pre-cooked riced cauliflower and sweet potato.

I knew I had some olive oil and balsamic vinegar at home for the salad dressing, as well as some almonds, so the salad was good to go.

As my stomach was yelling “FEED ME!”, I rushed to the register to check out.

Once I arrived home, within 6 minutes flat, I had a bowl of the following healthy chicken and rice salad ready for me to devour.

Instructions
  1. Since the chicken is already fully cooked, simply add 12 oz of the pre-cooked chicken breast to a heated pan over medium high heat for 5 minutes, to re-heat the chicken.
  2. At the same time, add 6 oz of the pre-cooked riced cauliflower and sweet potato to the same pan as the chicken, and re-heat for 5 minutes.
  3. While the chicken and rice is being re-heated, add 2 handfuls of the pre-made salad mix to a cutting board and chop it up into small bite sized pieces.
  4. Add the chopped salad mix to the bowls and top each salad with 1 tbsp of almonds.
  5. For the salad dressing, simply mix 2 tsp of olive oil, 2 tsp of balsamic vinegar, and 1 tsp of garlic powder in a bowl, then mix together.
  6. After the 5 minutes is up, remove the chicken and rice from the heat, then add it on top of the salad.
  7. Top each bowl with the salad dressing.
  8. You are all done. All that is left is to take a bite and yell out, "Damn That's Good!".
