Buffalo Chicken Meal Prep

I've had quite a few people tell me over the last last week that they really liked my breakfast meal prep post that I did, and so I figured I would share a lunch meal prep that my husband and I ate a few weeks ago. This one is a healthy spin on buffalo chicken wings, which happen to be one of my favorite foods. This one however is healthier, doesn't have a fried batter component, and you still get the blue cheese flavor in the quinoa! Lots of good lean protein, nutrient dense carbs, and loads of veggies! What more could you want in a lunch? 

Makes about 4 lunches
1 1/4 cup quinoa
2 1/2 cups water
1 tbsp blue cheese
2 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Franks Red Hot Sauce 
Carrots and Celery (as much as you want per container)

In a pot on the stove, prepare the quinoa to package instructions. When the quinoa is finished cooking, stir in the blue cheese, and then set aside until later. 

Cut your chicken breast into bite size pieces, and then in a skillet on medium heat, add in your oil, and cook in batches until all of the chicken is cooked all the way through.

Once all of the chicken is cooked, toss it in the franks red hot sauce, and then portion all the food into your meal prep containers.

 I portioned mine into four meal prep containers and then ate one the first day and had the other three throughout the week. These can be stored in the fridge for up to three days, or stored in the freezer up to a month (probably minus the celery). The night before you want to eat your meal, take it out of the freezer, and put it in the fridge to thaw over night.
