Leftover grilled chicken recipes are helpful to keep on hand when meal prepping. Varying options give you the freedom to grill ahead!
When you’re living the low carb lifestyle you end up with a LOT of grilled chicken on hand! Finding ways to use it is what Pinterest and Facebook are for. When you have a busy lifestyle and you enjoy meal prepping, having lots of options for grilled chicken is helpful. PS – who isn’t busy these days?! Below are 27 recipe ideas that use grilled chicken. They all look unbelievably delicious!
For example, need a good grilled chicken recipe??
Here are a few ideas:
Next, I’ve got a few tips for you when it comes to grilling:
- A clean grill. Y’all I can’t stress this enough! Make sure your grill is clean. Which means you’ll want to turn your grill on SUPER high heat and let it burn off all the gunk from the previous time!
- Put your meat down and let it be. Do not touch it! When it’s ready to flip, it will release from the grates. If you feel any pull, let it hang out for a bit more.
- Don’t close your grill lid until you flip the meat. When you close the grill, it begins to steam, and you want the nice caramelized grill marks before you close the lid.
In addition, here are some storage containers I recommend for meal prep and on the go lunches
Pyrex Simply Storage – these are my absolute faves! Great sizes, they’re glass and go right into the dishwasher.
Prep Naturals Glass Meal Prep Containers – these have two compartments. I haven’t ordered them, but they’ve been on my wishlist for a long time. I love that they are glass, and have the suction sealing lids. They remind me of the next version…
Meal Prep Containers with 3 Sections – these are like the Ziploc ones you put in the kiddos lunch boxes. They’re plastic, so they travel well.
Fitpacker Meal Prep Containers – we bought these for my grandparents to take home Sunday lunch leftovers. We can add a meal to each of the boxes, snap a lid on and they can put in the freezer for later, or store in the fridge for that week. They go right into the dishwasher, and you can reuse them.
In conclusion, grill up some chicken, store it well in your fridge or freezer, and prep ahead for mealtime. This works great for low carb eaters who need to plan head. Or, it’s great for busy people who just need meals at the ready.
