Recipe: Teriyaki Chicken and Broccoli

This meal-prep version of teriyaki chicken is perfect for lunch time. It will satisfy the need for take-out without the extra calories. The chicken is not too sweet or to salt and covered in a sticky teriyaki glaze. We like to add broccoli for extra crunch and fiber but the chicken is also great alone!

The dish comes together in under 20 minutes and makes 4-5 days of lunch. Prepare these meal prep dishes on Sunday or after work, and enjoy an entire weeks worth of delicious lunch.
