2. The chicken
There are several options for the chicken. Our favorite option is to use Free Range Organic Chicken from Butcher Box, season and bake it, then shred it or cut it into small pieces and keep it on hand for these meal prep bowls!
Another option is to buy a pre-cooked roasted chicken from the grocery store or roast a chicken yourself. Either way, making it once and having it throughout the week is a wonderful way to save time!
