Super flavorful Thai Chicken Curry loaded with vegetables and perfect for meal prep! 10 minutes prep time, 20 minutes in the oven and you’re done! Dinner or 4 lunches made in the blink of an eye.
If you’ve been following along for a while you know about my obsession for Thai Curry anything. One of my favorites is this Coconut Curry Soup. The simple thought of having something Thai curry flavored for lunch every day for a week sounds heavenly!
The objective of this recipe was to be able to prepare it super super fast. Let’s face it. Meal prepping isn’t necessarily the fun part about meal prep lunches. It’s the eating part that’s fun, right?
So, how can we efficiently meal prep on a Sunday without spending all day in the kitchen?
There have been more than a couple of weekends this year where I’ve skipped meal prepping for the week because I simply couldn’t find the time for a 2-hour meal prep session.
These Thai Chicken Curry Meal Prep Bowls are prepped in 10 minutes tops. While they are in the oven you don’t have to do anything and then it’s a matter of 5 minutes to divide everything into 4 containers for the week. Less, if you don’t precut the chicken.
How to make Thai Chicken Curry in the oven
It’s so simple you won’t believe it. All you have to do is prepare your curry sauce, whisk it all together in a deep baking dish, add your whole chicken breasts and that’s it.
I do not recommend cutting the chicken into pieces as #1 that’s an extra chopping board your have to wash and #2 the chicken dries out more easily. Keeping the chicken breast whole gives a juicier chicken.
Make sure you do not overcook your chicken. Overcooked chicken tastes incredibly dry no matter how much sauce you pour over it.
For best results use a meat thermometer and pull the chicken out of the oven as soon as it reaches 155F internal temperature. Then let it rest for approximately 10 minutes without cutting into it (important!). During the rest time, the chicken reaches 165F internal temperature which is considered safe for consumption.
What to serve Thai Chicken Curry with
I’m a huge advocate of filling your plate at least half with vegetables. If at one meal you didn’t, then go overboard a the next meal.
Probably the single most important thing when trying to achieve eating a clean and healthy diet is adding vegetables in abundance to each and all your meals.
Today I’m partnering with Mann’s because with them eating veggies it made easy!
The sweetness of the rotini and fettuccini goes soooo well with the Thai Chicken Curry and the Broccolini® gives such an amazing nice crunch to the whole dish.
