This recipe has most definitely become one of my go-to meal prep options because of its convenience.
These super tasty meal prep boxes are quite easy to make. They are healthy and make a great lunch for the entire week.
I love having them in the fridge especially when I’m sure I’ll have a busy work ahead.
That way I can have them for either lunch or dinner without having to go through the trouble of cooking.
I simply pop the container into the microwave and voila, lunch or dinner is ready.
I love chicken, rice, and broccoli for my lunches because otherwise, I would have to spend money on taking out food which definitely not a healthy way to live.

In a medium-size saucepan, add the two cups of water and bring it to boil.
