Hit your macros in minutes with a quick, cheap, and healthy microwave lunch recipe! This BBQ Sriracha Chicken or Tuna & Rice recipe has a ton of flavor, is packed with protein, and super easy to make with common ingredients.
For this recipe all you’re going to need is a bowl big enough to fit all of your ingredients in and a microwave. If you don’t have a microwave, here’s a link to the one I’ve been using and recommend.
Add right into your bowl 1 or 2 5 ounce cans of either tuna or chicken. However many cans you use is completely up to you and your macros that day!
Take out and microwave your choice flavor brown rice. I complimented the canned chicken and used a :90 second chicken brown rice today.
Continue by adding into your bowl 1 serving or 1 cup of your microwaved brown rice, 1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of bbq sauce, and 3 teaspoons of chili sauce.
Bored of the flavor? Try using other various flavored microwave brown rices such as whole grain medley!
Mix all of those together. You can stop mixing once your bbq Sriracha chicken or tuna & rice looks fully incorporated.
