Prep Time 15minutes
Cook Time 25minutes
Total Time 40minutes
1Tbspcoconut sugar or brown sugar
1tspchipotle chili(or any other chili powder)
210ozchicken breasts(300g each)
2cupscooked black beans
1/4cupchopped yellow onion
1/3cupchopped red onion
1/3cupchopped fresh cilantro
Preheat the oven to 400F (200C).
Add sugar, coriander, cumin, chipotle chili and sea salt to a small bowl and whisk.
Sprinkle spice mix generously on both sides of both chicken breasts and add the rest of the spice mix to an oven-proof bowl or baking dish.
Add cooked black beans, chopped yellow onion, garlic and chicken broth to the bowl and place on a large baking sheet.
Add chicken breasts to the baking sheet and then wash, dry and dice zucchini and add to a bowl.
Sprinkle zucchini with sea salt and drizzle with avocado oil and then mix with your hands until all pieces are well coated.
Spread the diced zucchini out on the baking sheet and then place everything together in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165F.
In the meantime, prepare the pico de gallo: Add tomatoes, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, juice of half a lime and a pinch of sea salt to a bowl and toss until well combined.
Remove everything from the oven and let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes. Then use two forks to shred it and then divide it amongst 4 meal prep containers.
Divide zucchini and beans amongst the meal prep containers, too, top everything with pico de gallo, drizzle with some sour cream and store in the fridge for up to 4 days. (I drained the broth of the beans a little to make it less soupy and I added a little bit of water to the sour cream to make it more drizzable).
