It’s mostly low carb because we’re using baked green vegetables instead of rice or potatoes. However, if you fancy a sweet potato or black rice with spicy chicken, you can totally go for it.

But, if you want to keep this meal prep bowl low carb, make sure you mostly serve it with green veggies.

How to Make Spicy Curried Chicken Meal Prep

Step 2. Mix olive oil with curry powder, oregano, and paprika powder. Add a dash of salt and pepper.

Step 3. Use a garlic press to crush garlic cloves and mix everything together.

Step 4. Pour the marinade into a resealable plastic bag and add chicken breasts. Seal the bag and marinate in the fridge for 4 hours.

Step 5. Once marinated, place the chicken in a smaller baking dish.

Step 6. Then, separately, place veggies in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, spray with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.

So, you might want to take them out before the chicken or place veggies in the oven 5 minutes after the chicken.

What to Serve Spicy Curried Chicken With

Sweet potatoes – sweet potatoes have a higher amount of fiber than regular potatoes do. The carbs that these are made of are mostly starch which is more complex and therefore is harder to digest.

Cauliflower rice – it’s a great regular rice substitute that’s low carb. So, if you want to keep the meal prep bowl low carb, make this rice instead of the regular one.

Brown/Black rice – brown/black rice is better than white rice because it has all parts of the grain. So, they’re more nutritious and have more fiber which is essential for digestion.

Chickpeas – I’ve recently shared a low carb chickpea meal prep bowl on this website. Chickpeas are simply amazing for eating.

Fresh salad – there is nothing better than a fresh salad with chicken. If you want to keep the meal prep low carb, try some of the delicious keto salad recipes.

How Long Can You Keep It in the Fridge?

While some say that chicken is fine in the fridge for 4 – 5 days. I usually don’t keep it for longer than 3 days.

Make sure the containers you get are airtight. Glass containers like these ones here tend to keep food fresh for longer.
