Okay, so maybe you’re going to laugh a little at the name, but Rooster’s Punch fits this quick 5-minute recipe so well. I’ll combine the rooster (roasted chicken breast) with the punch (Sriracha) and a few other ingredients. This meal is light, flavorful and has a nice variety of protein, veggies and cheese.
This is a great midday or post-workout meal to keep you going all afternoon!
- 3 oz. roasted chicken breast (pre-prepared works well)
- 2 oz. red bell pepper (sliced thin)
- 2 oz. sweet onion (sliced thin)
- Small handful of cilantro
- ¼ cup of feta cheese
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil is great and a healthy fat. However, when you are trying to keep your fat down I suggest taking a paper towel and lightly coating your sauté pan instead of just pouring it in the pan or pre-mixing with veggies.
Once your pan has warmed up, add the bell pepper and onion and cook on low to medium heat until the vegetables begin to char a bit. Then add the chicken and salt and pepper to taste. If the chicken is already pre-prepared you only need to warm it for a minute. But, if the chicken is raw, you’ll want to fully cook it.
When your chicken and veggies are cooked, put them on a plate or in a bowl, add the cilantro and feta. Give it a little turn with a fork.
Now for the Punch! Add Sriracha to the mixture for a little sweetness and a nice punch.
I love this meal. It’s so quick, it’s nutritious, delicious and provides about 26 grams of protein to help rebuild your muscles after a great workout.
