Meal prep is the key

I don’t know about y’all, but meal prep is literally the key to making sure I eat well. There’s absolutely no way I can stick to AIP when I’m in the elimination phase if I don’t have food ready to go. If I don’t meal prep, I end up waiting until I feel like my stomach could implode from hunger and then I go stare into the empty abyss that is my fridge, hopelessly searching for something that will take me less than 10 minutes to prepare, so I can appease the hunger monster as quickly as possible.

And I think we all know how that story ends.

Meal prep inspired by Korean BBQ

I love pretty much any Asian-inspired food you put in front of me – especially Korean food! But most Asian dishes contain soy sauce, which as the name implies, contains soy. And that is a no-go on AIP. Plus, many people don’t realize soy sauce also contains gluten, which is definitely a no-go for those of us with celiac.

Many Asian dishes also contain nightshades in the form of bell peppers, chilis, cayenne and/or hot sauces. Korean BBQ dishes often include spicy kimchi and gochujang chili sauce. And as you may know by now, nightshades can be problematic for those of us with autoimmune diseases, so they are eliminated on AIP as well.

But fear not! While these ingredients are often tasty, they are not necessary to make delicious AIP-friendly Korean BBQ!

Recently, I shared this amazing AIP Bibimbap recipe. If you have not tried it yet, stop what you’re doing and go make it immediately. Seriously. So good! And it is 1000% easier to make than it looks. I promise.

OK, now that you’ve tried the AIP Bibimbap, it’s time to try your hand at some AIP Korean Chicken Meal Prep!

How to make Nightshade Free Korean Chicken Meal Prep (AIP)

This Korean Chicken Meal Prep is super easy. The only equipment you’ll need is your Crock Pot (or Instant Pot), a 12″ skillet and some basic kitchen utensils. And meal prep containers, of course. And maybe a box grater or food processor if you don’t buy pre-shredded cabbage or pre-riced cauliflower.

Pro tip: if you don’t want to buy pre-riced cauliflower, buy a few heads of cauliflower and “rice” it ahead of time. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for grab-and-go cauliflower rice.

Pro tip #2: if you don’t want to buy pre-shredded cabbage, just buy a big head of cabbage and shred it all at once. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for easy no-prep cabbage to use in stir-frys, coleslaw, breakfast hashes, side dishes, etc. If kept dry, shredded cabbage usually lasts about two weeks in the fridge, for me. If it sits in moisture, it gets soggy and gross, though, so be sure to soak up any extra moisture with a paper towel or dish towel.

OK, here are the ingredients you’ll need for Nightshade Free Korean Chicken Meal Prep:

  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil (omit for AIP elimination)
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 cups riced cauliflower
  • optional toppings: sliced green onions, chopped cilantro, sesame seeds (omit for AIP elimination)
  1. Add coconut aminosgarlic powderground ginger and sesame oil to a slow cooker. Whisk to combine. Add chicken thighs on top and toss to coat in the sauce. Cook on low 4-5 hours, until cooked through.
  2. Turn slow cooker off, shred chicken with two forks and give it a good stir to coat the chicken in the sauce. Let rest for a few minutes, so the chicken can soak up all the juices.
  3. While chicken is resting, steam or sauté the cauliflower rice for a few minutes, just until soft. Divide among four glass meal prep containers. Repeat with the shredded cabbage. Then divide the shredded chicken and juices among the meal prep containers. Store in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  4. To reheat, remove the lid, pop glass container in the microwave and heat through for approximately two minutes (depending on microwave power). Or eat it cold. Either way, it’s delicious.
  5. Top with sliced green onion, chopped cilantro and/or sesame seeds, if desired.

If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can always use your Instant Pot or pressure cooker! Just set to high pressure for 6 minutes, let the pressure release naturally, and move on to step 2.
