Lime Tortilla Chicken Strips (Freezer Friendly)

These lime tortilla chicken strips can go directly from freezer to oven, and are delicious served on a Nourish Bowl!

We all have those nights.  The ones when you just CAN’T adult anymore.  And it usually happens sometime around….Thursday.

At least that’s how it goes around our house.  Ambitious dinners are for Sundays, or even Mondays.  By the time Thursday rolls around, it’s got to be super simple.

Lucky for us, simple can also be delicious!

Today’s post is sponsored by my friends at Mann’s.  Have you tried their Nourish Bowls?  *swoon*

Mann’s has FOUR delicious Nourish Bowl flavors, and for this post, I absolutely had to go with the Southwest Chipotle.  It is packed with the good stuff: sweet potatoes, cauliflower, kale and kohlrabi, and a delicious slightly spicy and smoky salsa.

All you have to do is stir everything up with the salsa and some cheese, then heat it for 3 minutes in the microwave for a healthy and delicious dinner.

{They’d also make a pretty awesome work lunch!}

To go with my super convenient Nourish Bowl, I decided to make another batch of freezer-friendly chicken strips (did you see these Healthy Homemade Frozen Chicken Strips?).

These lime tortilla chicken strips can go directly from the freezer into the oven, and are ready in 20 minutes.  Plus the lime, tortilla chips and chili powder are the perfect compliment to the chipotle flavors in the Nourish Bowls!
