Southwest Chicken Pinwheels with a Sriracha Dipping Sauce

It feels like 2021 just started and here we are about to head into springtime. Even with a busy start to the year, one thing we’ve been able to keep up with is meal prepping. 

One of my favorite things about meal prepping one day a week is using one main ingredient and making two or more meals with different flavor profiles. For example, often we will cook or grill 2-3 pounds of chicken breasts and split them up into various meals for the week. 

With warmer temperatures around the corner, meals served cold are great to use during outdoor activities, picnics, or just for a packed lunch at the office. This would include wraps, sandwiches, salads, cold pasta, etc.

When we are adding flavor to our dishes, the spicy sweetness from this sauce goes a long way.
