Saving Money:

I love buying our meat from @butcher_box. We spend a bit more up front, but save money in the long run.

Quick Tips & Tools:


Large bowl or bag, medium pot, baking pan, knife, cutting board, medium bowl



Double the slaw. It is great even the next day!

Make double the rice as well, and make fried rice the next day. Or sub rice for Quinoa.

I generally use the jalapenos in my husband and I’s slaw (its so good!) but I make another one for my daughter that has NO jalapenos and NO onions.


Saving Time:

Prepare your marinade in the morning and let the chicken sit in fridge to absorb all that flavor. 

While your chicken is baking, make your slaw and rice. It will all be done in 25 minutes!
