15 Minute Meal Prep: Cilantro Lime Chicken and Lentils


I’m baaaaack! with more meal prep!

This time it’s got shredded chicken, lentils, and a dangerous amount of kicky green flavor: jalapenos, green onions, cilantro, limes. The top is begging for a little cotija cheese crumble – and by a little I mean a REAL GOOD CHUNK – and the little extra lime juice shower just before eating is not negotiable. Serve it up with brown rice (look at you, healthy!) and it is a protein powerhouse lunch.

As with all 15 Minute Meal Prep recipes in this series, things are very straightforward and simple.

  • Chicken
  • Lentils
  • Salsa verde
  • Cilantro
  • Lime
  • Jalapeno
  • Garlic
  • …and so on and so forth.
Ingredients for Cilantro Lime Chicken and Lentils.

The only real thing you need to do to prep this recipe is chop the veggies, and then pop it all into the slow cooker or Instant Pot and let the magic happen.

It makes for happy leftovers (which is kind of the whole idea with meal prep, right?) and if you get sick of eating it with rice (or cauli rice for our low-carbers), it can be repurposed in a variety of ways.

Think: tacos, quesadillas, nachos, soups, burritos, and on and on.

15 Minute Meal Prep is the gift that keeps on giving.
