When you have extra grilled chicken on hand, like these Ranch Grilled Meal Prep Chicken cuts, you need different ways of using them throughout the week. Eating the same chicken over and over is quite boring – but, it’s such a time saver to prep ahead. 

The Best Bruschetta Chicken Recipe starts with grilled chicken, and I have a few tips for you!

Need some quick grilling tips?

  1. 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!
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.

Next, let’s chat about saving time in the kitchen.

Here are a few tips for planning and prepping ahead for a busy week!

In order to plan your menu and find time to prep, you need to PLAN to plan! Sounds funny, I know. However, when you set aside half an hour to plan your menu, your shopping list, and your Game Plan prepping ahead becomes less of a chore. 

  1. Find half an hour to make your menu, note your grocery list, and create a Game Plan.
  2. In your Game Plan, write down your menu + all the items you can prep ahead.
  3. When you bring your groceries home, place them in “meal kits” while you see what you need to prep ahead.
  4. Chop all the veggies and fruit and place in air-tight storage containers like these.
  5. Put your proteins in containers placed with the corresponding veggie/fruit containers in the fridge.
  6. Any snack veggies and fruits, I prefer to store in the reusable zip bags, so I can put in my bag.
