Keto Meal Prep Tips
One Pan Chicken –
You can easily make this skillet ahead of time, then simply refrigerate up to 4 days. To reheat the entire dish, I put back in a pan on the stove and simmer on low until reheated throughout (stirring occasionally to make sure nothing sticks on the bottom). You can microwave individual portions (great for lunches) in the microwave–Blast in 30-second intervals (stirring between sessions) until warmed throughout.
Pork Chops –
These are great for meal prepping. I love making a double batch of these, then freezing the raw, pecan-covered pork chops. This turns into a super quick meal later when I just don’t want to come up with something new!
You can cook these and store them in the fridge in an airtight container up to 4 days. To reheat, place on a baking sheet at 350 degrees until pork is warmed throughout. You could also use the air fryer or a toaster oven to reheat and keep the crunchy crust; a microwave is quicker, but you’re more likely to overcook the pork and lose some crunchiness.
Zucchini Boats –
If meal prepping, you may want to just make the cheeseburger filling in advance and then wait to assemble the zucchini boats until you’re ready to bake them. You can even hollow out the zucchini ahead of time and chill them until ready to use!
Once cooked, I prefer eating the baked zucchini boats right away (baked and then reheated zucchini tends to turn mushy).
Chicken Wings –
Wings are great for meal prep. Simply store in an airtight container in the fridge, then reheat in the microwave for 30 second intervals. While this is the fastest reheating method, I prefer to reheat mine in the air fryer or the oven to get back that deliciously crispy skin.
Shrimp Creole –
I don’t usually love reheating seafood, but the sauce really changes things for me here. The flavors meld and become even more amazing as the dish sits up to 3 days in the fridge.
To reheat, warm slowly in a pan on the stove, stirring often so it doesn’t burn. If you need to thin out the sauce, you could add seafood/vegetable broth or water. If microwaving, try heating on 50% power in 30 second intervals so that the shrimp doesn’t become overcooked and rubbery.
