Didn’t have time to prep dinner early? No worries!

Bright lemon and fresh zesty cilantro give a vibrant flavor to chicken breasts. You can make the breasts whole, or cut them into pieces and serve over a salad or cauliflower rice. You could even prepare this on the grill! This meal is full of fresh summertime flavors, but best of all- it is quick, and will leave you feeling satisfied.

Brussel sprouts are probably one of my favorite vegetables. They are very underrated. You can cook them up so many different ways, with so many different flavors. Today, we are going to make them on the sweeter side. To prepare fresh brussel sprouts, you first need to cut the stem off. Once the stem is separated, the outer 1 or 2 layers will just fall away. Discard the stem and those few layers. I like to cut the sprout in half because it’s easier to eat and they get more flavor.

You are ready for a tasty dinner in less than 25 minutes! What is your favorite 30 minute meal??
