Recently I have had some friends ask about simple ways to start eating healthier all week. They don’t all have time to cook every night, may be on a limited budget, are cooking for one, and/or don’t have conventional kitchens. However no matter what the situation, I always have the exact same recommendation. Buy a slow cooker and make a big crockpot meal every Sunday that you can eat throughout the week for quick healthy lunches and dinner. Not only will it provide a welcome home-cooked meal, it’s affordable and usually takes zero cooking knowledge.
Today’s recipe for Slow Cooker Coconut Thai Chicken is one that is perfect for that situation. It can easily be made for around $10 (even less with chicken thighs), takes about 5 minutes to put together, and can be eaten all week in a variety of ways. Serve it with rice, mixed with 1.5 cups of chicken broth for a Thai Soup, on a bed of rice or spaghetti squash, wrapped up as a sandwich with fresh veggies, or on top of a salad with cold brown rice and edamame. It’s delicious, simple, and can provide healthy meals all week long.
