Keto Meal Prep Tips
Instant Pot Whole Chicken –
This is a great keto meal prep recipe to keep around! It results in flavorful, juicy, tender chicken in less time than the traditional oven roasted chicken. However, if you prefer the oven method or don’t have an Instant Pot, click here for those instructions! I recommend cooking one to carve and enjoy on Monday, and one to shred and use in Wednesday’s stuffed peppers.
To reheat the whole chicken, place in a roasting pan or baking dish. Pour 1/2-1 cup of chicken broth in the bottom of the pan and place in the oven at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.
Pork Chops & Fried Cabbage –
This can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge about 3 days. To reheat, put back in the skillet (pork chops on top) with a tablespoon or two of water, cover, and warm in the oven on 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes.
Green Chili Chicken Stuffed Peppers –
These can be prepped or cooked ahead of time. You can cook the chicken up to 3 days ahead of time. You can use the Instant Pot method described for Monday’s meal, roast the chicken in the oven, or cook chicken breasts in the slow cooker. You can mix up the filling and store it in an airtight container up to 3 days, cut the peppers 1-2 days ahead of time, then simply assemble and bake when you’re ready!
Cabbage Casserole –
You can cook the entire dish (minus the sprinkle of cheese on top… that’s better to add when reheating) ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 3 days. If you’d rather cook it fresh but keep it quick, chop the cabbage up to 5 days in advance and store it in a plastic bag in the fridge. You could also cook the ground beef (or turkey) up to 3 days ahead of time and store in the fridge. If doing this, the casserole should be eaten within a day of cooking.
Bacon Wrapped Scallops –
I would not recommend making these in advance, but you could easily prep these ahead of time! 1-2 days ahead of time, you can wrap the scallops in bacon and store them in the fridge. Don’t season them until right before cooking, though.
