  1. Divide chicken between meal prep containers, along with cheese (1 tablespoons per bowl).

  1. Store in sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

To Serve
  1. Heat in the microwave until steaming hot, and cheese is melted over the chicken.

  2. Add sliced avocado fresh, if desired.

    • make sure you add the avocado fresh or it will turn brown
    • undercook your veggies & cauliflower rice slightly because they will cook again when you re-heat
