Bodybuilding Diet for Hardgainers – Muscle mash-up meal #2: Chicken-mince mass gainer

Hello again hardgainers!

Here’s the latest in our series of bodybuilding diet muscle mash-up meals, recipes developed by us to help you eat enough nutritious, tasty food to pack on the muscle mass. Isn’t that what we all want?

Truth is, to gain muscle, we all need to eat in a caloric surplus. If you’re a hardgainer, ectomorph body type, you need to eat more than most – and be consistent with it. There’s no point skipping meals, eating small portions, or letting a tiny appetite kill your gains.

Our muscle mash-up series give you really quick, easy meals which taste great and help you cram in plenty of macronutrients and micronutrients, to give your body exactly what it needs to build serious muscle.

Ready to cook? Here’s a recipe for a chicken meal which is anything but plain and ordinary. Packing over 300 calories per serving, with a balanced ratio of carbs, protein and minimal fat, it’s a taste sensation which will transform your muscle meal menu. Get ready for our chicken mince mass gainer.

This recipe contains around 4 servings (depending on your macros). Why not double up the ingredients, cook in bulk, and have quick-grab meals for the week ahead.
