I love meal planning! It sets my week up for success every time. This zero point spicy chicken is perfect for meal planning, because it's so versatile. You can use spicy chicken in your omelets for breakfast, or mixed with some sriracha mayo for spicy chicken salad for lunch. It is a delicious full-flavor salad topper, too!
