Thai Ginger Cilantro Ground Chicken a.k.a. Your New Lean Protein Meal Prep Staple!


This one’s bound to become a classic! Ready in under 20 minutes, delicious, nutritious & spiced to perfection!

So I definitely make a conscious effort to incorporate more plant-based protein into my diet, but lean ground chicken is definitely something I cannot go without!

What I love about preparing a ground chicken recipe for meal prep is that it’s so versatile that you could eat it a different way everyday (& you just won’t get sick of it, not only because it’s so good but because you won’t get bored of eating the same thing everyday).

You can eat it:

  • as is!
  • stirred into brown rice!
  • in Buddha bowls!
  • lettuce wraps!
  • salads!
  • tortillas!
  • sandwiches!
  • in grilled bell peppers!
  • sweet potato or spaghetti squash halves!

Basically, the possibilities are endless!!!!

Most of my meal preps involve some sort of ground chicken recipe (some weeks I’ll do ground turkey too!) & those are mainly the reasons why! I mean, do you blame me?

This week, I decided to hit up the Thai flavours & opted for some white onion, green onion, coconut oil, ginger, chilli flakes, coconut aminos, rice vinegar & CILANTRO FOR DAYZ.

Without further ado, let me tell you how to make it!

My loves, YOU WILL NEED:

  • Coconut oil cooking spray
  • 1 white onion, DICED;
  • 1 package of lean ground chicken;
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger;
  • 1 tsp. onion powder;
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder;
  • 1 tsp. chilli flakes;
  • 3 tbsp. coconut aminos;
  • 2 tbsp. organic rice vinegar (no salt or sugar added);
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro;
  • 3 green onions, CHOPPED;
  • Sea salt & black pepper.

NOW, for that HOW-TO?

  • Spray a medium skillet with coconut oil cooking spray & heat over medium high heat.
  • Once heated, add the onion & sauté for about 5 minutes, until browned & fragrant.
  • Now, lower your fire to medium. Add the chicken & spices, coconut aminos & rice vinegar & sauté for another 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken begins to look cooked through & browned.
  • Add the cilantro & green onion, season with sea salt & black pepper & sauté for another 1-3 minutes!
