Lunch: chicken, sweet potatoes, and sweet kale salad


This week's lunches are rotisserie chicken, sweet potatoes, and kale salad. I was going to buy fresh chicken breast but I was too lazy to cook them so I bought a rotisserie chicken instead. I will say it again that Costco has the best chickens. This one is from Superstore and it doesn't have much flavor. 


This salad is awesome. It comes with poppyseed dressing, dried cranberries, and pumpkin seeds. In Canada it is available at Costco and Superstore. It's about $6 a bag but I think it's worth it!


Cut all the meat off the chicken and divide into containers or put all the meat into one container so it's easy to grab and eat. I made 4 lunches out of this and had the drum sticks left over for dinner.


I bought a huge sweet potato and cut it up into smaller pieces so it would cook faster. Toss them in a bowl with olive oil to coat, lay them on a cooking sheet, and sprinkle with pepper and cinnamon, or whatever seasoning you like. Bake at 400F for 10-15 minutes and flip them. Bake for another 10-20 minutes depending on how soft you like them. I like mine a bit crispy on the outside so I left them in longer.


Every night I package my salad in a separate container and put the dressing on the side so it kind of goes to the bottom and won't make it soggy. I usually get pretty hungry in the afternoon but this lunch kept me full for quite a long time yesterday.
