Meal Prep Tips for Honey Mustard Glazed Chicken Salad

  • Preparation tip: If you are cooking with thick chicken breasts, you can pound the meat flat with a meat mallet until it is about 1 inch thick. This process helps tenderize the meat and also speeds up the cooking process.
  • Cooking Variations: You can also bake the chicken in a small toaster oven or cook it in the Air Fryer (cook at 360F for 20 minutes until it reaches an internal temperature of 165F). Another option is to pan-fry the chicken in a skillet or grill it on an indoor grill pan if you prefer to cook on the stovetop.
  • Storage: Store the meal in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 4 days. You can also store the chicken in a freezer-safe container or bag for up to 3 months for the best quality.
  • To Reheat: Heat the chicken in the microwave until they warm through. However, you can eat the chicken chilled.
