  • Author: Caitlin Self, MS, CNS, LDN
  • Total Time: 6 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Make your own homemade frozen meals with this fast and easy method. Spice it up with your own favorite sauces, or stick with this spicy Harissa sauce!


  • 1 package (16 oz) Trader Joe's Simply Roast Chicken (or use homemade shredded chicken)
  • 2 Tablespoons Trader Joe's Harissa Paste
  • 2 cups Frozen Cooked Brown Rice
  • 16 oz Frozen Broccoli
  • 4-8 Tablespoons Hummus
  • Optional: If your chicken is particularly dry, you can add a drizzle of olive oil as well.


  1. Start by chopping up the cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Toss with 2 Tablespoons Harissa paste. Divide this Harissa Chicken among the four freezer-safe containers. (About 4 oz per container.)
  3. Using a measuring cup, measure 1/2 cup cooked brown rice and add to the other side of the containers.
  4. Divide the frozen broccoli evenly among the containers, filling the rest of each container all the way. (NOTE: you may have to chop some of the larger pieces of broccoli.)
  5. Top each with a dollop of hummus (about 1-2 Tablespoons), cover, seal, and store in the freezer!


You may have to chop up some larger pieces of frozen broccoli.

If your chicken is a bit dry, I recommend drizzling it with a touch of olive oil.

You can use fresh ingredients for this recipe, such as leftover rice, but they may freeze in one solid block.

Nutrition label is for 2 Tablespoons of hummus per container.
