    No, like run home and quickly make something, other than a sandwich :o.

    I remember a lot of guys here cooking in batches and freezing it for later. I just can't remember what they typically used :o

    yeah I used to do that. the tenderloins were thin enough that it didn't matter. a whole breast might be different

    Thanks. Do you season the chicken at all or anything? What do you make as a side typically?

    Thanks, I'll have to try it.

    yeah, either marinate it or just throw some seasoning on there... black pepper, garlic pepper, lemon pepper, whatever you like

    usually as a side, i have quinoa, brown rice, steamed veggies, sauteed spinach... anything, really

    It's quickest to prepare stuff in advance. 5 minutes tops to defrost + reheat a chicken breast in the microwave.

    For snacks, pre-cooked hardboiled eggs. Whole-wheat toast + natty PB. Hell a spoonful of peanut butter straight up.

    Edit: for chicken I've been throwing a bit of mozzarella on top then pouring on some good all-natural marinara sauce (it has less sugar). Throw that in the oven for 30 at 375 and it comes out delicious. I'll make 8 breasts at a time, enough for lunch for a week.

    i try to keep a few lbs of some kind of deli lunch meat and i'll throw it on some bread with a slice of cheese or something juicy if i need something quick.

    Need to start doing something for work, too. I don't enjoy spending $200/mo eating bullshit

    But if you want something really quick, you can pan fry up some fish in 5 or 6 minutes easy

    shitty. you could always try and buy some vacuum packaged fish in bulk from somewhere? some if that stuff is actually better than buying "fresh" from stores because it's frozen when it's just about perfect and doesn't sit out

    Could also be possessive, but the sentence isn't structured properly for that.
