So it was just one of those days where I was on a stretch of day shifts. I was damn tired. I did not feel like going to get groceries. And I had no food in my fridge. But luckily cause I’m highly organized like that I had stuff in my freezer! Hooray.
This is the easiest recipe has only 5 ingredients besides the spices from your spice rack. It is so healthy. It’s got a great macronutrient balance and is packed with micronutrients as well.
We don’t always have to resort to take out or eating quick crappy things that make you feel shitty. If anything with working day shifts or shift work we need to be diligent with our nutrition so we can muster up the energy to move forward with enthusiasm.
This recipe would also be great for a big family as it takes such little time to make! You can serve it with a simple sandwich or toast. Or a warm toasty piece of whole wheat naan bread. Now we’re talking!! Hope you enjoy my creativity on this one.
Serves 4 big bowls or 6 medium sized bowls
Calories per serving of big bowl 330
2 frozen Chicken breasts
1 package of frozen broccoli slaw
1 cup frozen green peas
3-4 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup or 8 oz. brown rice pasta
All the herbs and spices!! What I used: oregano, dill, chives, thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
In the morning pull your freezer open and grab chicken, broccoli slaw, and peas. Put into crock pot with chicken broth. Doust with all your seasonings. Set on normal or low heat depending on your crock pot and slow cook for 10-12 hours.
When returning home from your exhausting day boil pasta in salted water. Take chicken breasts out of soup and shred with two forks and throw back into soup. Stir and taste to see if any seasonings need to be adjusted. Once pasta is cooked drain and throw into soup and stir. Serve!
Enjoy the rest of your day!!
