Ingredients

For the chicken:

For the quinoa:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 + prepare a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • To cook quinoa, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add in 1 cup of dry quinoa into the pot, stir, and return to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium, simmering until all water has absorbed (about 10-12 minutes).
  • While quinoa is cooking, prepare chicken marinade. Coat chicken evenly in marinade, and place on parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Bake chicken at 450 for 20 minutes.
  • While chicken is baking and quinoa is finishing cooking, prep all remaining ingredients for the quinoa and add to a bowl.
  • Allow quinoa to cool completely. When quinoa is completely cooled, toss all ingredients for quinoa salad together gently + serve cold!
  • Assemble bowls with quinoa salad, a generous serving of spinach, and sliced chicken on top.
  • Optional: drizzle with balsamic reduction

Notes

Substitutions for Chicken Caprese Quinoa Meal Prep Bowls
  • Cheese- You can sub mozzarella for feta or goat cheese. I would sub with 3/4 cup instead of 8 oz.
  • Greens- I like these meal prep bowls with spinach but arugula, spring mix, or any greens will work well!
  • Protein - I haven't tried it, but I'm sure these bowls would be great with fish instead of chicken. You'd just need to adjust the cook time depending on what you swap.
  • Dairy free- To make these dairy free, simply omit cheese.
How to store Chicken Caprese Quinoa Meal Prep Bowls
These meal prep containers are my favorite. We use them every week and they go right in the dishwasher with no problems. You can store these chicken capresee quinoa meal prep bowls for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
WW Freestyle Note: Calculated using part skim milk mozzarella, and 1/2 the amount of olive oil.
