Makes: 4

Ingredients for Burrito Mason Jar Meal-Prep

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 4 tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • 1 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • 7 oz. cooked wholemeal rice
  • 7 oz. can sweetcorn (drained)
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 heads little gem lettuce (chopped)
  • 8 tbsp. soured cream
  • 3.5 oz. grated reduced-fat cheese
  • Spring onions to garnish

Method

1.  Cut chicken breasts into cubes, season, and pan fry on a medium heat with a little coconut oil until fully cooked through. Remove and allow to cool.

2. Assemble your mason jars. Divide and drop in the chopped tomatoes and onions, lime juice and a little salt and pepper and mix. Add 2 tbsp. soured cream to each jar. By adding the liquid first, you won’t get a soggy salad after a few days in the fridge.
