This Meal-Prep Honey Sesame Chicken with Broccoli is a fantastic lunch recipe. I love to make this in advance and then have it for lunches during the week. A short bit of weekend prep will ensure you have healthy lunches all week.

Start by searing chicken thighs in a skillet. Add a honey, sesame and soy sauce broth to the chicken. Cook in the oven until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened. Prepare the sides as the chicken cooks. Assemble the lunch boxes with roasted broccoli, cauliflower rice, and the chicken. Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions and enjoy!
