Chicken Burrito Bowls
Full of protein and healthy carbs with so much flavor that you will forget you are eating healthy! A favorite Chipotle burrito bowl recipe.
Grilled Chicken Burrito Bowls are all the rage. I think we can thank Chipotle for that. It's made with everything you stuff inside a burrito....without the large flour tortilla. It's basically the healthier version of the burrito. There is a reason that people can't get enough of protein bowls -- you get a good amount of protein, healthy carbs, and vegetables. It's a filling, satisfying, flavorful meal.
So what is in these Grilled Chicken Burrito Bowls?
So glad you asked.
It starts with marinated chili lime chicken, grilled to perfection. Grilling just makes everything better. The key is to marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes. I prefer at least 2-4 hours or even overnight.
The base of the burrito bowl is rice and black beans, which are carbs that give you a good amount of energy. Pico de gallo and fresh avocado slices or guacamole are placed on the top. Since it is corn season, fresh roasted corn is added to the bowls. The beauty of corn on the cob is that it can be grilled right alongside the chicken.
