Meal prep. Sunday is upon us, you guys!
It’s absolutely key if you want to stay on track with your nutrition.
Unless you’re into splurging big wedge on an over-priced Super Salad from your local Organic Health Food Cafe. Which I’m certainly not.
Apart from the fact that the majority of those wildly expensive salads always come with the stingiest serving of protein.
Everybody knows that the slow cooker and meal prep go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly. You can have almost an entire week’s worth of meals done and dusted with pretty much zero babysitting of said meals.
This one is perfect. Spicy, really meaty, tangy and super filling.
- Throw everything in.
- Come back hours later to decant your macro-friendly meals into your favourite lunchboxes.
- Revel in the smugness of actually enjoying your food whilst still slayin’ your nutrition.
Slow Cooker Spicy Salsa Chicken
- 600 g chicken breast
- 100 g red onion, diced
- 2 tsp garlic, minced
- 400 g chopped tomatoes
- 15 g tomato puree
- 1 beef stock pot
- 60 ml red win (optional)
- 165 g salt-free sweetcorn
- 235 g aduki beans (or any black beans)
- 1 tsp chilli powder more / less to taste
- 1 tsp cumin

- 1/2 ts[ paprika more / less to taste

Simply combine all ingredients in your slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours (depending on the strength of your slow cooker).
It's ready when you are able to pull apart the chicken breasts and shred them easily with a fork.
Shred the meat and stir well before portioning out and refrigerating / freezing for meal prep!
