Not only does it look tasty, I made it today and I confirm that it was actually really easy. I had a friend around for lunch and they went away saying that they were going to try and make it themselves! I call that a winner.
I think that the idea is that you eat this cold but if you don't put the cheese in until last I am thinking that it is easy to reheat and eat warm as well. And while we are at it, there's no reason why this can't be a dinner meal. Tasty, pretty quick and pretty healthy.
I do wonder how it can be a burrito without, you know, the burritos, but whatever!!
Chicken Burrito Bowls
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 bell peppers, any colour, sliced
1 large red onion, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
Salt and pepper
1 jar salsa
3 cups cooked brown rice, divided
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 lime, sliced into wedges
Fresh cilantro (coriander) to garnish
1. Preheat oven to 400˚F/200˚C.
2. Line a baking sheet with foil.
3. Place the chicken, peppers, and onions onto the baking sheet and drizzle with oil.
4. Sprinkle the taco seasoning evenly over both sides of the chicken breasts.
5. Salt and pepper the peppers and onions, tossing to coat.
6. Top each chicken breast with a generous pour of salsa.
7. Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes.
8. Rest chicken for 10 minutes, before slicing into strips.
9. Add a base of brown rice to 4 food storage containers. Top each with a scoop of black beans, corn, additional salsa, cheddar cheese, cooked peppers and onions, and sliced chicken. Garnish with fresh cilantro and a lime wedge.
10. Store in the refrigerator (and enjoy any extras immediately). Can be kept refrigerated for up to 4 days.
