BORED WITH CHICKEN?

I hear a lot from our clients that they get bored with chicken… and I have to admit that I’ve said it a few times myself!

When you start a journey into cleaner eating the first protein you go to is chicken for a number of reasons. It has a lower fat and higher protein rating than most other meats. It is a natural anti-depressant (who knew??) and will naturally boost your metabolism!

However… you can still get pretty tired of eating it day after day after day.

So… ya gotta get creative! But still keep it simple.

Who has time time prepare a huge chicken dinner anymore?

Here are four quick chicken recipes to spice up the menu and keep preparation time low! Bon appetit!
