  • 1.5 - 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 cups cooked basmati rice, cooked according to the package.
  • 1 pound asparagus, steamed to desired tenderness


  • Heat a medium stock pot, skillet, or dutch oven on the stove with the olive oil on medium to high heat.
  • When the pot/pan is hot, add the chicken tenders and onion. Cook on each side until browned, then turn heat down to medium.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard, paprika, garlic, salt, thyme, and broth. Do not add the Greek Yogurt here. Set bowl aside.
  • Pour sauce into pot/pan. Let simmer until chicken is cooked through out. This is only a few minutes, depending on the size of your tenders.
  • Once the chicken is cooked throughout, stir in the Greek Yogurt and stir until heated.
  • Divide the Dijon Chicken Tenders into 4 meal prep containers.
  • Add 1/2 cup of cooked rice to each container.
  • Add the steamed asparagus to the meal prep container.
  • Store in the fridge, no more than 4 days.
  • To reheat, add 1-2 teaspoons of water, put the lid on loosely, and microwave for 1 minute. Add 10 second increments until desired warmth.
