For the Bowl:
• 4 oz. of Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
• 1 Cup of Cooked Minute Rice
• 1 Tbsp Lime Juice
• 2 Cups of Mixed Greens (Spring Mix)
• 1/4 Cup of Black Beans
• 1/4 Cup of Cooked Corn (Drained or Grilled)
• 2 Tbsp of Greek Yogurt
• Cilantro (For Topping)
• Salt & Pepper, To Taste
For the Chicken Marinade:
• 2 tsp of Your Favorite Seasoning Blend (Southwest or Chipotle tastes amazing)
• Pinch of Salt & Pepper
• 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
• Chopped Cilantro
• Hot Sauce
• Pico de Gallo
• Jalapeño Coins
• Lime Wedge
• Greek Yogurt Dollop
• 1/2 Avocado, Sliced
1. First, grab the chicken breast and place it in a large, sealable plastic bag with all of the marinade ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
2. Place a skillet on the stovetop and bring it to a medium to high heat. Once hot, place the chicken breast on the skillet to cook for 5-7 minutes on each side or until it's cooked all the way through (absolutely no pink).
3. While the chicken is cooking, place the cooked minute rice in a bowl, adding the lime juice, salt, pepper, and some cilantro to taste.
4. Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the skillet and let it cool on a plate while you get started on the greens.
5. Take a few handfuls of the spring mix and place it in a medium to large bowl.
6. From here, take half of the cilantro lime rice and add it to the bowl with the spring mix. In addition to that, add the corn and black beans to the bowl as well.
7. Next, it's time to slice the chicken breast! Set the bowl to the side and slice the chicken to your liking. Add it to the bowl when you're done.
8. Add any toppings you like and enjoy!
