Want to know how to make meal prep interesting? It’s all about the flavor.
One of my favorite parts about cooking is coming up with my own marinades and sauces. When I create one that’s extra yummy like this mustard lemon marinade, I can’t help but share it!
Here’s chicken I made with the mustard lemon marinade paired with zoodles, spinach and cherry tomatoes a few weeks ago.
