Recovery Meal – Simple Chicken & Rice

20 Oct 15  / Pete

Why it’s great for recovery – Chicken (protein) to repair the muscles, basmati rice (carbs) to get it into the muscles nice and quick for maximum results.

I’ve just got in from running club after some 10-minute intervals and I need a quick food fix!
Luckily I put some chicken in the slow cooker this morning! You can easily do this in a pan for 15 mins instead, though.
Great post workout grub! This was a ruddy good decision. Champion food prep!


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 diced sweet peppers
  • sugar snap peas
  • 2 tins chopped tomatoes
  • paprika & mixed herbs – basil always goes ace in toms!
  • worcester sauce
  • balsamic vinegar
  • white basmati rice

Cooking Instructions

Either cook everything except the rice in your slow cooker whilst you’re at work, or all in a frying pan for roughly 15 mins. If it’s in the slow cooker, pop on your rice as soon as you’re in from your workout or run. Absolutely bloody simple!
