#MakeItMonday {Clean & Healthy Chicken Burrito Bowl}

Eat your heart out Chipotle. I just made this Burrito Bowl for dinner and it was so fresh and so tasty. We are Chipotle fans and like any favorite meal of ours; I always question trying to replicate. It's like the saying, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Well, I went for it and I am glad I did.

Servings: 4

The flavor is mind blowing. Each bite was better than the last. The creamy feta taste mixed with the oregano is delicious. Who knew a dish with such flavor could also be healthy.

Unfortunately, the pictures aren't great. This is what happens when you're cooking multiples meals at a time and have little people at your feet (don't they know I prefer to cook in peace).
