Hawaiian Chicken Meal Prep Bowls are filled with barbecue chicken, bell pepper, fresh pineapple, red onion and zucchini noodles. They are so delicious and a convenient way to prepare lunch or dinner in advance!
Hey friends! I am so excited to share this delicious recipe with you all! I’ve been making these HAWAIIAN CHICKEN MEAL PREP BOWLS for awhile now and we just can’t get enough.
I created this recipe before we went we went to Hawaii a few years ago. We were trying to eat healthy and were exercising a lot before to get into swimsuit shape. We loved them so much, we eat these and other meal prep bowls all the time. It’s become an awesome way of life.
Seasoned barbecue chicken, bell pepper, fresh pineapple, red onion and zucchini noodles are all inside these easy and awesome meal prep bowls!
I’ll make about 6 or 8 for Kale and I on a Monday morning, and then we’ll eat them for lunch or dinner through out the week. They are so yummy and super healthy. I love that you can make healthy food taste so good, and that’s exactly what these bowls are.
Sometimes I’ll use asparagus instead of the zucchini noodles. Either way, they’re totally worth making. I hope you guys give them a try soon!
