Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 3 bell peppers sliced, any colour
  • 1 medium-sized red onion sliced
  • 2 jalapeño peppers sliced

Chipotle Chicken

  • 1 lb chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp adobo sauce
  • 1 tbsp finely diced chipotle peppers
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Pico de gallo

  • 2 plum tomatoes diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Corn salsa

  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp salt

Guacamole

  • 2 avocados
  • 2 tsp lime juice more if you want
  • 3/4 tsp herbamare or salt
  • 1 small red onion diced
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven or BBQ to 425 F (I highly recommend BBQ). Toss chicken with seasonings and let marinate for 15 min.
  • Meanwhile, cook rice according to package directions (should be 1 cup rice and 1 1/2 cups water) and prepare vegetables, make salsas and guacamole.
  • Throw the chicken on the BBQ or in the oven for 20-25 min until cooked to 165 F internally, flipping once halfway through.
  • Meanwhile, stir fry bell peppers and red onion over high heat in a large skillet.
  • Add all desired ingredients to each bowl once everything has finished cooking and enjoy!

Notes

Make the chicken on the BBQ or in the oven.
Swap out the toppings for whatever you’re craving.
I suggest making the guacamole fresh so it doesn’t brown in the fridge.
Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days. Eat cold or microwave the chicken and rice separately for 1-2 minutes (make sure to sprinkle some water over top).
Freeze the cooked or raw chicken for up to 4 months in an airtight container or freezer bag.
