5-minute midday meal – Rooster’s Punch
Okay, so maybe you’re going to laugh a little at the name, but Rooster’s Punch fits this quick 5-minute recipe so well. I’ll combine the rooster (roasted chicken breast) with the punch (Sriracha) and a few other ingredients. This meal is light, flavorful and has a nice variety of protein, veggies and cheese.
This is a great midday or post-workout meal to keep you going all afternoon!
Once your pan has warmed up, add the bell pepper and onion and cook on low to medium heat until the vegetables begin to char a bit. Then add the chicken and salt and pepper to taste. If the chicken is already pre-prepared you only need to warm it for a minute. But, if the chicken is raw, you’ll want to fully cook it.
When your chicken and veggies are cooked, put them on a plate or in a bowl, add the cilantro and feta. Give it a little turn with a fork.
Now for the Punch! Add Sriracha to the mixture for a little sweetness and a nice punch.
I love this meal. It’s so quick, it’s nutritious, delicious and provides about 26 grams of protein to help rebuild your muscles after a great workout.
